From the Inside Flap
Congratulations. Whether you're Liverpool born-and-bred or one of its two million annual visitors, you've just found the only guide to this spectacular city that matters. Some things may have changed by the time you read this - such is the pace at which Liverpool is transforming itself - but you won't find a more up-to-date, comprehensive companion to the 2008 European Capital of Culture. This is the real deal, written and produced by native Liverpudlians who know the score. Welcome to a city reborn, exciting and inspiring, and the only one (to our knowledge) with statues of Michelangelo, the Duke of Wellington, Christopher Columbus and Billy Fury. Have fun...
