There is no doubt that Bill Shankly was one of the greatest football managers of all time. The former miner from the tiny Lanarkshire village of Glenbuck used football as an escape from the harshness and danger of life down the pit. After spells as a player with Carlisle and Preston North End, Shankly took over as manager of Second Division Liverpool, and his first success in 1962 as Liverpool took the Division Two championships. Two years later they were league champions and followed that up in 1965 by winning the FA Cup for the first time in their history. Over the next nine years, Shankly ruled supreme at Anfield.;Tom Darby has spoken to some of the men Shankly moulded into great footballers - among them Yeats, St John, Tommy Smith, Steve Heighway, Emlyn Hughes and Kenny Dalglish - who recall their memoirs of Shanks for this book. He has also interviewed Shankly's family and gathered together stories from ordinary Liverpudlians whose lives were touched, directly or indirectly, by the genius Scotsman.
