Great Book About a Great Manager,
This review is from: Managing My Life: My Autobiography: The Autobiography (Paperback)
Despite not being an avid supporter of Manchester United I have always been very keen to have an insight into the life and times of club's greatest ever manager.
The book clearly portrays the great mans early days and his tough upbringing in Govan, Glasgow. Uniquely, in a city which had major religous differences Alex's parents were from a mixed marriage. We get a great insight into Alex's early footballing life and the tough times that his family endured in surviving.
A fascinating discussion about Alex Ferguson's time as a player were amongst other clubs represented Glasgow Rangers. Even as a player we could to realize that he had a volatile temperament which would continue to serve him as a natural football leader.
From success at the unfashionable Aberdeen football Club to the pressures of managing one of the biggest sports clubs in the world Alex remains how much his childhood upbringing continues to be a major backbone of his life.
A truly great read into the one of soccers most respected characters.

A couple of points
Mixed marriages are very common and in no way unique as you have suggested
Aberdeen can not be described as unfashionable
Although obviously not as big as the Old Firm, they are a city club and consistently in Scotland's top 5 clubs
