Always Managing: My Autobiography by Harry Redknapp
It's straight forward reading with few revelations. Especially liked the reference to Sir Alex essentially throwing a game to help his friend Bryan Robsons relegation battle at West Brom, something I spotted when it happened. Harry is a great manager and is so because he's one of the good guys who gets real respect.
Back from the Brink: 1000 Days at Number 11 by Alistair Darling
During the early days of the crisis I felt that Mr Darling was the only consistent voice without agenda and so it would seem. Easy to read account of a nice Man surrounded in my opinion by slightly deranged egotists.

I didn't enjoy this book and its difficult to know why because it is well written with great detail of the new music scene in 1977.

My problem was a growing restlessness with the 3 main characters. I'd guessed working on a music paper in the late 70's would be pretty edgy but this is a story of a nerd-like trio of bedwetting music journos.

If I could have given the 3 main characters a good slap and finish the book before the end I would have done.
