Publisher's Summary

Three of the greatest football clubs: Celtic, Liverpool and Manchester United. Their three greatest managers: Jock Stein, Bill Shankly and Matt Busby. 

Three men born within a 20-mile radius of each other in the central lowlands of Scotland; forged in mining communities to subsequently shape the course of modern football. 

More than the sum of its parts, Three Kings promises a narrative beyond any single biography of its three subjects could. The track record of Jonny Owen and his producers promises a film of critical and commercial importance - loved by all fans of the beautiful game, as well as by fans of the three greatest clubs in the UK. Together these three clubs have a combined 170,000 season-ticket holders and social-media followings worldwide of over 200 million people.

Not a fan of Liverpool Man U or Celtic but this is a fascinating social history lesson football and three Great men of the mid C20th. Only Robson or Clough comes close to their impact as an Englishman... and from a similar working class background. Today’s managers should be compelled to read this excellent book as part of any LMA qualification

a great listen for football history aficionados <br />

I knew it would be an ok listen, but as someone who appreciates a football manager teaching working-class values to players,& the managers own backgrounds, etc, I enjoyed it immensely.
