Looking For The Toffees by Brian Viner, Love Affairs & Marriage by Howard Kendall & The Everton Quiz Book by Alex Hosie are a start and may be part of the Rooney library - up there on the shelf alongside Roy of the Rovers & Dandy & Beano Christmas annuals.

I bought the last "Looking for the Toffees" Amazon had in stock.  I tip my (Everton) cap to you, good sir.  It arrives Saturday, hope it brings us luck against Spurs.

You're in for a very pleasant read my friend. Great times to be a football fan/Evertonian laid out in x amount of pages. Will stay your mind from Trump, atom bombs and weather bombs for a wee while. Bottle of rum and serious spliff recommended while reading of course.

Ee-eye-addio-we won the cup  :thumbsup:

Gorge Orr's Everton in the 60s and Everton in the 70s. The new book from James Corbett sounds good too, looking forward to reading it a chapter at a time in WH Smiths on my dinner break.

I have many levels of cheap skatery! I must have been mid 20s by the time I stopped paying as kid to get in the match.

I would've thought the book was completed? It's out soon isn't it? I don't know the process it goes through mind, Dd they have a quick turn around from when it is finished to when it gets in the store?

don't think the printing time is too long to be honest, but it's in the final stages of production and reckon I was a late addition rather than part of the original plan!

it's 250,000 words apparently, which makes it pretty epic!
