Publisher's Summary

Revised and updated with new material from the paperback edition.

Includes a prelude read by Sir Alex Ferguson.

Sir Alex Ferguson's compelling story is always honest and revealing he reflects on his managerial career that embraced unprecedented European success for Aberdeen and 26 triumphant seasons with Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson's best-selling autobiography has now been updated to offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour round the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised.

The extra material adds fresh insights and detail on his final years as United's manager.

Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting and accessible way for the general reader than Sir Alex does here.

My Autobiography is revealing, endlessly entertaining and above all inspirational.

The reader James Macpherson most notably appeared in 'Taggart' as DCI Mike Jardine, and has also read the audiobook editions of Ian Rankin's Rebus series and Billy Connolly's Route 66.

    "Not sure about the accents..."

    Great telling of a fascinating life at the helm of United. Ferguson comes across fairly arrogant throughout but that's to be expected of a man who achieve so much.

    Story
    "Well read, reasonably interesting"
    What made the experience of listening to Alex Ferguson the most enjoyable?

    James Macpherson's reading of this sets a good tone to the book with a believable dialect and some good intonation.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The book itself jumps around a little bit and is very heavy on success stories. It could do with a little more about the times when things did not go well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    Story
    "Interesting, great narrator, skirts some issues"
    Where does Alex Ferguson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I'm a football and Manchester United fan so perhaps I'm a little biased but I found it quite interesting to hear Alex Ferguson's opinion on the Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Ronaldo transfers and it was nice to hear a tinge of regret on the exit of some players (e.g. Beckham)


    What does Alex Ferguson and James Macpherson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The narrator was excellent, and I quite enjoyed his attempt at impersonating players' accents such as Quinton Fortune.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It wasn't a particularly emotional book - more factual.


    Any additional comments?

    I felt 'Fergie' skirted around some issues such as the Pogba situation and also Wayne Rooney's second transfer request.

    Any additional comments?

    Don't be put off by the fact Fergie's career is a long one. You didn't need to live through the time of events to understand and be pleasantly amused by the them.

    "Fergie doesn't hold back"
    Where does Alex Ferguson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 2


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Alex Ferguson?

    The part were he laid into the whole Roy Keene saga


    What does Alex Ferguson and James Macpherson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A real dryness to fergie's character that I always thought he would have if I ever met him


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes couldn't stop listening


    Any additional comments?

    Fergie's pulls no punches on all the people who have dared to defy him over the years it's deliciously one sided and I love it. If like me you are a man united fan then you will find his insight into certain players really interesting. Great listen!
