Dixie Dean was one of football's greatest players during the last century - considered by many to be England's finest centre forward. In this definitive biography of the legendary Everton star, author John Keith draws on his own previously unpublished taped interviews as well as interviews from BBC Radio Merseyside archives. He has also spoken to Dixie's two sons and his daughter, all of whom have co-operated fully. The book will be published to coincide with Everton FC's unveiling of a new statue of Dean at Goodison Park. This is a unique insight into the life of a footballing legend and features the Everton icon's own compelling account of his remarkable life and times.
