Ken Pye is superb and this book is legendary
'Discover Liverpool' is an invitation to revel in the magic of one of England's greatest cities, courtesy of a beautifully crafted A4 hardback book and accompanying DVD. This is not an academic tome, but rather a labour of love by author and city expert KEN PYE. It will prove an inspiration to the many thousands of people expected to help the city celebrate its 800th birthday this year. A tidal wave of visitors will follow in 2008 when Liverpool basks in the title of European Capital of Culture. The eyes of the world will be on the famous port during this spell and Discover Liverpool will inspire readers to take one or all of the eight detailed tours that will guide them into the heart of the city to reveal the characters, buildings, myths, ghost stories and legends that make Liverpool unique. The DVD backs all this up with a magical preview of iconic attractions like the waterfront a world heritage site as Ken Pye s complete city history unfolds.
