The Special One's very personal football management odyssey.
About the Author
As a manager, Jose Mourinho is unique in winning eight league titles in four different European countries: in his homeland of Portugal with Porto, in England with Chelsea, in Italy with Inter Milan, and in Spain with Real Madrid. His managerial career may only be 15 seasons' old, but Mourinho has already won 22 trophies - including two Champions League titles. He parted company with Chelsea in December 2015, and is now the manager of Manchester United. This is his first book.

I 'read', if that is the correct word, the whole book in a leisurely 20 minutes.
I say read but the book is mostly a page with an excellent photograph from a scene of Jose's career and life with a short- very short description of the scene and the story behind it.
They do say a picture is worth a thousand words but it is consumed a heck of a lot quicker with a simple glance rather than reading 1000 words.
There is the rub to borrow another sport's terminology.
It is not a biography- ghosted or otherwise it is not a novel it is a set of photographs with written captions by Jose.
I can well understand the genuine howls of protest by people who have bought the book expecting it to be a biography and were disappointed.
I have sympathy for how they feel cheated- indeed my son who bought the book is among them.
But in my case I was able to read the book for free after my son had finished it (in about 10 minutes!)
So I am writing this review from the superior position of not having to pay for it and reviewing as I see not what I would have expected.
Do not pay full price for this book.
Loan it from a library or a friend who has it.
Heck even read it in the book shop it will not take long to do so.
Get it for penny read it and recycle to your local charity shop.
An enjoyable book but disappointing.
