3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite in a league of its own., 21 Dec 2013
This review is from: Alex Ferguson My Autobiography (Hardcover)
I'm not a big football fan and borrowed this book because I'm interested in sports psychology and leadership.

I thought this provided limited insight into the man and what made him the great manager that he undoubtedly was. [ it wasn't a case of sweet F.A with regards to this, but just not as much as I hoped]

No doubt Sir Alex is a man with as many talents as A Wenger Swiss Army knife has blades, but I think that writing is not one of the skills in his arsenal. To my mind he often comes across as grudging in his admiration towards others which is a great shame as acknowledging others generally should not diminish your own worth - and he no longer needs to compete.

That's what I thought, but then other readers will be approaching this book from a very different angle.

So, if you are reading this because you are Man Utd fan then irrespective of all of the above this will no doubt find a place on your bookshelf, and you probably will love it.

I however have loaned it out and may consider letting it go on a free transfer.
