Book Description

24 Sep 2012
In this mammoth landmark book, author James Corbett has chronicled the individuals and incidents that made Everton into the great institution that we know today. With entries on every man to pull on an Everton shirt, including more than 450 full biographical entries, some 350,000 words and utilising new and original research from the recently opened Everton Collection, Corbett's book crosses new boundaries in the study of Evertonia. Lavishly illustrated and printed in full colour throughout this is a book that will be passed down through generations of Evertonians. Nearly a decade after the first publication of his acclaimed narrative history of the club - Everton: The School of Science - and coming after deCoubertin Books' publication of Everton: The Official Complete Record, this is the perfect addition to every Evertonian's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything from Gary Ablett to Z-Cars! 12 Sep 2013
By Chief.
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Everton Encyclopedia is a massive tome of knowledge that is essential to any Everton fan.

The book is an A-Z covering every player and manager in the clubs history (accurate up until the end of the 2011-12 season), major fixtures, rivalries, competitions at home and abroad and even entries on more abstract themes such as Joe Royles 'Dogs of War' and Everton fanzines. Literally anything or anyone you could think of is here.

The main strength of the book is as a who's-who of Everton talent, and you will find a comprehensive biography of the playing careers of every Everton player within this book, including full season by season career records (games(substitutes appearences)/goals). Naturally more page time is dedicated to those players with the greatest edigree at the club. Each entry is complete with various photos, and there are hundreds of photos throughout the book.

The book is a very candid read and presents the various personalities in a 'warts and all' fashion, celebrating their strengths and successes but also speaking freely about their failiures and weaknesses.

Alongside acollades regarding greats the likes of Southall, Ratcliffe, Sharp, Sheedy etc, there are also the tales of woe regarding Evertons late 90's financial woes, the acrimonious departures of players such as Speed, Kanchelskis and Barmby, unpopular personalities such as former chairman Peter Johnson, the corner cutting regarding the treatment of player injuries that hastened the retirement of promising players such as Hinchcliffe, Ball and Parkinson, and the players who failed to make their mark, never reached their potential, werent good enough to begin with (I'm looking at you Claus Thomsen!), or fell foul of the wrath of managers or the authorities.

Honestly, I cant imagine why any Everton fan or any fan of football knowledge could consider giving this book less than the full five stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a present 30 Aug 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my elderly Dad, and he absolutely loved it. He said that it gave him a real blast from the past to read about all the players from the past, forgotten by many but not by real fans like him. He said that he'd be dipping into the book again in future.
