Alex Ferguson: My Autobiography by Alex FergusonThe celebratory, revealing, inspiring, and entertaining autobiography of the greatest manager in the history of British soccer.
Over the past four years, Alex Ferguson has been reflecting on and jotting down the highlights of his extraordinary career, and here he reveals his amazing story as it unfolded, from his very early days in the tough shipyard areas of Govan. Sir Alex announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United after 27 years in the role.
He has gone out in a blaze of glory, with United winning the Premier League for the 13th time, and he is widely considered to be the greatest manager in the history of British soccer. Over the last quarter of a century there have been seismic changes at Manchester United, with the only constant element the quality of the managers league-winning squad and Uniteds run of success, which included winning the Champions League for a second time in 2008. Sir Alex created a purposeful, but welcoming, and much envied culture at the club which has lasted the test of time.
He discusses managing these seismic changes, and the growth of Man U as a global sports power. He shares the farewells to Roy Keane and David Beckham, describes the process of building a new Champions League side around Ronaldo and Rooney, and ruminates upon the great rivalries with Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, and City. He also shares his thoughts on the psychology of management, and his passions and interests outside the game.
Book Review - My Autobiography by Alex Ferguson
I have always had a fascination with successful teams. Whether it's a business team, a military team or even a sports team, I find it intriguing to know what makes them tick. Regardless of what the team is involved in, finding the formula to their success is the secret sauce that every leader tries to emulate. In my book, Building Great Startup Teams , I touched on the importance of building successful teams and this is an area that I am always keen to learn more about. I've just finished reading a book entitled Leading by Sir Alex Ferguson.
Before getting to the book, My Autobiography by Alex Ferguson, there are two things the reader of this review should know. First, I sit on the fence about Manchester United, neither for nor against. It is a position nearly as indefensible as being wholly pro or con, if not worse for its unwillingness to be swayed to either side no matter the level of persuasive arguments. Imagine yourself as a young manager of a mid-league team in England. You've been doing fairly well in the standings, and your club is financially secure but not rich.
'Leading' was a series of anecdotes in management and leadership lessons by Sir Alex Ferguson as he looks back on his tenure as manager.

The key figures in Sir Alex Ferguson's autobiography. The firebrand who used adversity to build a dynasty. United timeline: Ferguson's 27 years at Old Trafford. Queen's Park to Man Utd - Fergie's career in football. By Jim White.
Untied have been my team since I was seven years old. And I will remain a Red for life. So I was extremely excited to get my hands on this book. Fergie is one of my heroes. What he did for United is incredible. And we miss him. But anyways, this book gives you insight into a lot of his coaching decisions over the years.
