A Biography in Nine Lives takes its structure from nine key individuals associated with the club since its inception, and touches on aspects of each of their careers to explore key themes in the club's history. From John Glass, their tenacious first president and Willie Maley, who played in Celtic's first match against Rangers in 1888, to the legendary Jock Stein, who led the club to European glory in 1967 and Martin O'Neill, the most popular and successful manager since Stein, Kevin McCarra explores the history and captures the flavour of this most unique football institution.

Featuring interviews with Henrik Larsson, Gordon Strachan, Martin O'Neill, Neil Lennon and Fergus McCann, Celtic: A Biography in Nine Lives is a book which evokes all the drama of Celtic's great history. (pb)
