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.

If you would like to understand more about football - that's soccer to Americans - then I heard you to read this book or to download it from Audible. It is narrated by an amazing guy that really put you in the mood. If you want to know what happened in the dressing room ...coaching ...directing ...managing a football team or a football Club then this book is a must. Want to know who is Mourinho, Arsene vinegar or Cristiano Ronaldo, Rooney, vanPercy, Liverpool, ManCity, then give it a shot.
"Mediocre insight into Manchester United"
An Interesting listen; goes into detail about players and time at the club but he's just a bit cheesy.
"Decent account of a legend"
A little brief and more of a glimpse at his career.
The performance was good but the production and editing where poor.
"couldn't stop listening"
really enjoyed the story - recommended to all - give it a go. 5/5 rating
"Oh Alex to have been a fly on the wall"
Was Sir Alex lucky or a genius? The players he had helped of course.... Love James's narration
I does not matter who you support this book is a fantastic read/Listen for all football fans even coming from a Newcastle fan like myself.
"Over indulgent with a selection of cheese"
Too much of look at me and all my famous friends. Yawn fest zzz zzz
"Great insights to leadership style"
How he linked his childhood / early adult life to later leadership puzzles
The joy and emotion he describes exploring Iona Abbey, real pride of having a Govan connection to the place
There is only Sir Alex
Not moved as such, but it is riddled with tips for how to approach or consider approaching leadership situations
a good insight to Sir Alex's approach to leadership. A must for all football fans who are also interested in leadership
Excellent book tells the story of the wonderful life of uniteds greatest manager brilliantly ! Love it ! Sir Alex is a great writer he shows in this book as well as a unbelievable manager !
"I'm never in the wrong but I know others who are"
Yes, but I have prefaced the recommendation with my view that he has spent so long with yes-men telling him how faultless he is, he has no other opinion of himself. You can spot who he liked and who he didn't and how unfair he was in his treatment of certain people.
The New Testament if it was written in the first person
Good Lord no, who can afford to vegetate for that length of time?
Provided you can form your own opinions and maintain them without being swept away by his self promotion, then it's quite insightful and allows you to see what he thought of certain events, albeit that it is very one-sided and not balanced or tempered.
it was very well read by James. Fergie was a bit of a tit insulting the players that won him trophies and made him the manager he is
