An evocative, intimate portrait - Rory Smith, New York Times
Quiet Genius is like its subject, a winner and surely a candidate already for the best football books of the year, whether you are of a Liverpool FC persuasion or not. - --Blackpool Gazette
Terrific - Scotland on Sunday
Herbert has written perhaps the best Paisley biography, emphasising how hard work, an uncanny eye for a player and a belief that football is, at its heart, a simple game, worked wonders. - --Bristol Post
This brilliant new book chronicles how Bob Paisley the player reinvented himself as Bob the builder, Bob the physio, and ultimately Bob the all-conquering manager - LFC Magazine This biography puts Paisley on the map once again and brings him into the discussion of being one of the world's best football managers ever. Herbert deserves loads of credit for this as no other author could deliver a text as great as this. Kudos to Bloomsbury for yet another great football title and perhaps the top title of 2017 - --International Soccer Network
About the Author
Ian Herbert is the Independent's chief sportswriter. He began his career in Liverpool in 1989, where he was both a news and football reporter, and eventually became Deputy Editor of Liverpool Daily Post before leaving for the nationals. As a football reporter on the Post, he covered the managerial era of Graeme Souness, during which LFC's decline from the standards of the great Bob Paisley days was the steepest. @ianherbs
