Hibernian Greats
"Hibernian Greats" looks back on the fascinating careers of 10 of Hibernian's favourite players. As Hibernian programme editor for several years, Jim Jeffrey had unique access to the players and interviewed Hibs stars of the past and present on a weekly basis, gaining a privileged insight into the careers of those who have shaped the history of the club. All the big names are here: Eddie Turnbull, Gordon Smith, Lawrie Reilly, Joe Baker, Neil Martin, Pat Stanton, John Blackley, Arthur Duncan, Franck Sauzee and Garry O'Connor. Great games, magical moments, funny stories and the view from inside the dressing room are all part and parcel of this absorbing book, which gives the inside story on the stars who really mattered at Easter Road. The result is a book that is sure to appeal to anyone with an interest in the history of Hibernian, and it is an essential addition to the book-shelves of any fan.

Sunshine on Leith: Hibernian's Finest Sons
There's an old Italian saying: "There are two things you can never change - your mother and your team." This bond between a fan and his football club lasts a lifetime, developing over the years with the highs and lows that the passion can bring. "Sunshine on Leith: Hibernian's Finest Sons" is a book about that bond. The greats of the club are all here - Smith, Reilly and the Baker Boy from the Famous Five era - alongside Turnbull's Heroes, Stanton, Gordon, Cropley and O'Rourke. First published in 1995, the author has now updated the book to accommodate recent heroes who have won a special place in the hearts of Hibs fans and captured the imagination of football lovers all over. He describes how Frank Sauzee, Russell Latapy, John "Yogi" Hughes and manager Alex McLeish have all contributed to the Leith team's new lease of life which has produced some of the finest football at Easter Road in over 20 years. Hibs fans all know what the club means to them. But here, in their own words, is what club and fans mean to Hibernian's Finest Sons.

Eddie Turnbull: Having a Ball
As the first British player to score a goal in European club competition in 1955, Hibs hero Eddie Turnbull holds a unique place in footballing history. Now, for the first time, Turnbull tells the whole story of his extraordinary life in this compelling and thoroughly entertaining autobiography. Turnbull reveals how he became a professional footballer after just one competitive match following his demob from the Royal Navy and gives his version of how he became one-fifth of the most celebrated forward line ever to grace Scottish football - the Famous Five of Hibernian FC. He uncovers why he played no more than nine times for his nation and reveals why he had to wait until he was eighty-two to be awarded his first international 'cap'. After his playing career ended, Turnbull achieved lasting fame as manager of Aberdeen and his beloved Hibs. 'Turnbull's Tornadoes' beat Jock Stein's Celtic side to lift the Scottish League Cup in season 1972-73 and won the Drybrough Cup twice, in 1972 and 1973. In his decade with Hibs, he also managed George Best, and Turnbull now tells all about his turbulent time with the late, great Georgie. In this remarkable account, Turnbull explains why he walked away from football in 1980. He gives his diagnoses of the ills of the modern game and recounts the behind-the-scenes stories of his playing days and his two decades as a trainer, coach and manager.
