"It has been generally agreed that the achievement of a scholarly and comprehensive biography of William Roscoe of Liverpool was too monumental a task to be achieved by a single writer......This work comprehensively disproves such a pessimistic view.... Kevin Littlewood’s biography at last makes available to the public a detailed modern account of the life and work of a Liverpolitan one-off, a life which left an enduring and beneficial impact in so many different spheres."
From the book's foreword, by Dr John Edmondson, 2011
