The authorised biography of Bill Shankly.

Bill Shankly is one of football’s greatest heroes. The former coal-miner from Ayrshire gave his life to football. Best remembered for his outstanding Liverpool sides that included Hunt, Keegan, Smith, Clemence and Hughes, he led Liverpool to three Championships, two F.A. Cup and the UEFA Cup.

Told with the full co-operation of his family, and including exclusive interviews with those who lived and worked with Shankly, this is the definitive biography of the man who, when asked whether football was a matter of life and death, replied: ‘No, it’s much more important than that’.
