We think we know Bill Shankly, we've voraciously read everything we could on the great man. Well now we have an inside track on the manager who shaped our great club. Compiled by his granddaughter Karen Gill (and daughter of RAWK poster vicgill), "The Real Bill Shankly" provides a fascinating insight into the mind of this unique character through the recollections of the fans, players and his family.

The book includes marvellous photography from the archive collection of the Liverpool Daily Post and Echo and is officially endorsed by Liverpool FC. It's published by Trinity Mirror Sport Media and will be launched on September 29th to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the great man's death.

The book (ISBN: 1905266138) is available for order in advance of its official launch at Anfield:
