Great men have their deeds memorialised in verse and prose. But only the greatest of the great have the anniversary of their birth celebrated as well. There can be no more worthy recipient of that honour than one William Shankly, who first saw the light of day on Tuesday the 2nd of September 1913 and whose illustrious career in the sport of football as a player but more so as a manager has been covered in numerous books, magazines, videos and dvds. But those who thought his every word had been repeated and dissected tenfold were wrong. In the summer of 1962, as Liverpool Football Club prepared for its first season in the English First Division for eight long and painful years after relegation in 1954, Shankly agreed to a 14-week series being published in the Saturday Football Echo, known locally as The Pink Echo, this series explaining in his own words how the club finally shook of the shackles of the Second Division to reclaim its place at the top table again. These remarkable articles lay dormant for half a century before being discovered by a journalist who, thankfully, immediately realised their importance. Originally published in the Liverpool Echo under the title "The Hard Road Back" and released with that title as an e-book in 2012, the title has been aptly changed to reflect the uniqueness of this treasured find. Most stories about and quotes attributed to Bill Shankly came after his first tangible successes as Liverpool manager in terms of the major prizes that were available for him to win. But this is different because Bill is writing here "about a job he felt was only just starting, without knowing what would transpire when Liverpool returned to the top flight".Read more ›

I bought this book for my dad, who like I, is an avid Liverpool fan. He absolutely loved it and read it in a day! It is a great insight into our great manager and a delight to read for Liverpool fans of 50 years ago through to today.

I looked forward to reading this and learning a bit more about Shankly and his methods and ideas. Alas it was, as its name suggests, more a diary than an insight into his character or managerial style. I'm not sure it added anything that isn't already available in other biographies, which was a shame.

This is a great book to have, ideal for any Liverpool FC fan. My husband will be delighted with it come Fathers day, he is a real die hard fan. It isn,t a really long, really thick book, so won,t take an age to read. Ideal for people who find reading boring, ie, my husband! I would recommend this book to anyone who,s a Liverpool fan.

Bill Shankly was honest and straight-forward in his account of the 1961/1962 LFC season that got the club back into the first division after 8 long years. While his analysis of what happened is not thrilling, it is memorable and inspiring for any LFC supporter. I would recommend this book to any LFC fan or anyone interested in football history.
