Wibble Publishing


I came across an interesting couple of books yesterday as I was on the web and followed through to see who the publishers were. It is Wibble Publishing in the UK. They have an eclectic mix of books that I thought merited some sharing! They say, “Our goal is to help you to get your literary work published. We will do it for you or advise you on the best ways to avoid the challenges and pitfalls of trying to self publish.” Seems a good offer.

This is a subject close to my heart, ” Before the Premier League: A History of the Football League’s Last Decades.”

Before the Premier League looks at the major developments in English football between the late 1950s and the early 1990s that led to the transformation of the game. The book traces the changes over the last decades of a unified Football League, and details how they combined to revolutionise the sport. From the transfer market and attendances, playing conditions and wages, to the influence of sponsorship and television, Before the Premier League is an account of the factors which shaped modern football. Several in-depth interviews with players and fans of this era bring the history to life and illustrate the main themes which run throughout the book. Their first-hand experiences and memories of English football give a unique insight into how the game was played and watched long before the Premier League.

Biography: Born in Leeds at the start of the 1973-74 season, the author, Paul Whittle, has spent much time playing and watching football ever since. He writes about the game’s history at the1888letter.com and this is his first book.

Take a look at the Wibble Publishing website for a fill list of titles.
