Format: Hardcover
The first thing to admit here is that I'm a relatively new American fan of Liverpool FC, though I've long admired the team from afar. With a team as storied and rich with football legends, there's a lot of catch-up to do in order to feel like you know something about the Reds. I can only imagine that for a longtime supporter, this book is definitive: it's deeply detailed, covers the team's entire history from its birth to present day, and despite the elegant writing, it has plenty of welcome, opinionated bite. For this newbie, it doesn't presume too much prior knowledge of the team, and it gives plenty of space to the colorful players and the flavor of Liverpool the city, both of which have been instrumental in the success and mystique of the club. From bold LFC founder John Houlding to the triumph of the first FA Cup in 1965 to the tragedies of Heysel and Hillsborough to present day, once you're done reading this book, it's like you've completed your catechism in the Liverpool Way.

Format: Hardcover
John Williams is a sociologist by profession but a Liverpool football fan by disposition. Williams masterfully combines both the sociologist's eye for details about the city of Liverpool, its politics and people, with the fan's love of the team and the game. The result is an extraordinary team portrait that understands how the features of a hometown and its people shape the character of a team, and how a team can shape a city.

Great, comprehensive read of the Red's history. Actually, this was the best read of the club's history I've come across, and I've read LOTS of Liverpool books. There is MUCH to learn about the history of the Reds and the game of football from this well-written book. Highly recommend this!!

This is a great history of the club for any fans of Liverpool FC or football fans in general. It goes all the way back before the formation of the league, to the founding of Everton FC and the Liverpool split, through two world wars, and all the highs and lows of the club over the years in between. If you've always wondered why so many people around the world love Liverpool FC, this book will give you an idea why.
