5.0 out of 5 stars but like Fever Pitch before it, 8 July 2014
With a nightmare Christmas any hopes of a top 4 place seemed to have disappeared, but what had been a nightmare in winter snowballed to become a dream during spring. This book follows the lows and highs of the season that almost ended with the title, but sadly on wakening the dream faded, leaving us with memories, splendid memories of an challenge. But more than that, it was the way the challenge was delivered, with probably the most swashbuckling season in Premier League history.
The figures speak for themselves, but it is the raw emotion produced by the team and echoed by the writers that will remain forever in our minds. The breadth of the narrative is stunning, from the analytical studies to the jaw-dropping, electric charged passion of those on the terraces. A book written by fans, for fans, primarily of Liverpool, but like Fever Pitch before it, this reaches out across the divide to supporters of all clubs alike.
With some luck, 2015 will bring "They Dared to Dream Again".

5.0 out of 5 stars Authoritative and quality presentation, 26 Oct 2013
There have been several previous works providing a Who's Who of Liverpool Football Club, but none has provided such well researched and well written features. Not only does this book cover every player to play in the first team but there are also entries for various other facets of the club, for example books, programmes and of course summaries of the Anfield Road ground.
The book lists the players' records season by season and provides biographies for each of them of various length. No stone has been left unturned in uncovering additional details about the players, facts not previously in the public domain, thanks to interviews with living players and relatives of former players.
The presentation of the book is exquisite - high gloss pages with stunning photos. This is the kind of book that you can either read, use as a reference, or simply dip into at random.
