Alastair Campbell knows all about winning. As Tony Blair’s chief spokesman and strategist, he helped guide the Labour Party to victory in three successive general elections, and he’s fascinated by what it takes to win.
How do sports stars excel, entrepreneurs thrive, or individuals achieve their ambitions? Is their ability to win innate? Or is the winning mind-set something we can all develop?
Drawing on the wisdom of an astonishing array of talented people, from elite athletes to top managers, from rulers of countries to rulers of global business empires, Alastair Campbell uses his forensic skills as well as his own experience of politics and sport to get to the heart of success.
He examines how winners tick. He considers how they build great teams. He analyses how they deal with unexpected setbacks and new challenges. He judges what the very different worlds of politics, business and sport can learn from one another. And he sets out a blueprint for winning that we can all follow.

Great book - was initially looking at it for mindset insights but learnt a lot about politics, sports, people I might have had initial opinions on etc.
But together and gives some very good thoughts on setting personal or work strategy and tactics

I was a bit sceptical buying a politicians book, seeing that I don't really trust and respect them as much! but this book caught me, especially it's title as I am into self development and discovering new things about myself, and how I can develop some of the characteristics (Mandela, Warren Buffet, Jose mourihno, 50 cent & Lewis Hamilton) have.
This book was brilliant for me, I undermined it at first, seeing that I've read so many self development books with the same title before. This is one epic book, it's both practical and well compiled! It profiled almost all the sports personalities I enjoy watching on TV and provided some more depth and information about them, somethings I didn't know. I admire Jose Mourihno, Sir Alex Ferguson, Nelson Mandela, Warren Buffet & (50 Cent, though not profiled, but very good businessman).
Winners: and how they succeed, is very well read by the author and provides practical and useful insight into the minds of what makes the likes of Jose Mourinho, and Sir Alex Ferguson today's most admired managers and how they became who they are today.
If you love sports and want to tap more into the minds of your admired sports personalities, I recommend this book without any reservations.
It's masterfully compiled and having the author read the book himself, makes me admire and respect him more.
I am keeping this audio book forever, it is one of my favourite buys of 2016.
