Take a glimpse of the greatest sporting team on earth through the boss himself

This autobiography hits the ground running. The Scottsman reading through the chapters adds the finesse to an outstandingly well written book. When you get to look at how United have functioned under Sir Alex Ferguson for over two decades you really begin to ask yourself if you've even remotely pushed yourself to your abilities. The success Sir Alex has received is clearly not by luck. Every move, every instruction, every thought is blended with emotion, desire, courage and patience. I finished the ten hour long audio book in a day. It's been fantastic. What a man... what a manager! Glory Glory Man United!
