3.0 out of 5 stars easy to read, couldn't put it dow
Easy book to read, and I learned quite a lot about footballers and the how the backroom works. Also show the changes at Anfield which have been to the detriment of the club, but they changes were done as progression and improvements, pity we could have kept the atmosphere in the club as well. e.g. when they moved everything to do with the players to Melwood it separated...

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and entertaining, 3 Oct 2012
I didn't quite know what to expect from this memoir - I suppose I half feared page after page of arcane accountancy issues - but I loved it. I was surprised how many new and unfamiliar things were in here: for example, a fascinating account of how a transfer deal develops from start to finish behind the scenes, a great story about the author's time with Bill Shankly, some insights into the various managers, an interesting summary of the software the club used to use to assess potential new players, some intriguing observations about how the club used some of its earliest sponsors to modernise its commercial and technical set-up, and some sobering stories about the awful era of Hicks and Gillett. On top of this there are some vivid and illuminating stories about how the highs and lows of LFC during the past few decades were seen by someone on the inside. A really worthwhile read.

Easy book to read, and I learned quite a lot about footballers and the how the backroom works. Also show the changes at Anfield which have been to the detriment of the club, but they changes were done as progression and improvements, pity we could have kept the atmosphere in the club as well. e.g. when they moved everything to do with the players to Melwood it separated the Admin staff from the players. The players used to know everyone from the CEO to the domestic staff. suppose a reflection on like how we are all becoming separated

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read, 21 Jan 2013
The view from the accounts department of the World's Greatest Club (IMHO) is quite unique. Good to get a view of the personalities and the day to day running of a football club across several decades. Easy to read and hard to put down

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Five Star, 23 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got to be the best sports book I have ever read Funny, interesting and absorbing. Not your typical football autobiography by an ex player or manager. Fully recommend.

Just read another review which is a little critical because it doesn't "dish the dirt". Anyone can " dish the dirt". The best books don't need to stoop so low, and this book is absolutely absorbing and fascinating without needing to slur people. Brilliant!

It is not just about the accountancy background that the joint author has experienced, but the book gives a very interestesting description on how this famous club was run. With some really interesting and funny stories as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great read, 30 Sep 2012
A must read for all reds fans. Arthur Lowe gives his personal view of what it was like working closely with the many great managers at lfc; younger fans will find it really interesting to hear what made shanks, paisley, fagan, daglish etc the great managers they were. His accounts of some of the biggest games are brilliant. Heart wrenching account of Hillsborough. Great to read an in depth and inside view on how money has changed the wonderful game.
