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.

    "A great story of a great man"

    Good to get a glimpse of how Fergie thinks and his link of the past.

    "Amazing Story"
    What did you love best about Alex Ferguson?

    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.

    "I don't like soccer, so why am I suprised?"
    Any additional comments?

    A friend suggested this book. He loves soccer.
    I don't like soccer, so the whole thing was wasted on me. Some sports bios transcend the sport...not this one.

    Story
    "not what I expected"

    Manchester United and Fergie are certainly not a team I follow other than watching them trying to beat us season after season. However this book was a delight to listen to, a new found respect for the man has formed. The book is comedic in parts, enlightening in others; for a text that has a lot of name dropping it is difficult not to carry on listening.
    The narrator is an easy going Scottish accent, with some good if not amusing impersonations of players and managers.

    Worthy of a listen/read whether a MUFC fan or not.

    "Great listen some repetition"

    It's a fascinating insight into his time at Manchester United.
    The second half of the book however does find him repeating himself with some of the stories.
    Worthy of a listen none the less

    Story
    "Worth a listen"
    Would you listen to Alex Ferguson again? Why?

    No, but I'm pleased I listened to this.


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

    All of the judgements and comments he makes about players are interesting and informative. A holiday cruise he talks about around the Western Isles and Outer Hebrides made me want to do the same holiday.


    What aspect of Alex Ferguson and James Macpherson ’s performance might you have changed?

    Having been used to Sir Alex's voice for all these years anyone other than the man himself would be second rate in comparison, but this isn't meant as a criticism of James MacPherson.


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

    No.

    "Alex what a manager."

    I had put off reading this book for some time as I thought it would not add much to my understanding of Alex's time at Man Utd. How wrong I was. Great insights into this successful period at the club and also sheds light on several high profile departures from the club. Excellent narration as well.

    "I understand why he won so much"

    As an arsenal and generals football fan I enjoyed this. True, there a touches of his usual snideness, but it makes you realise this was just one part of what made him great.

    "Great summary"

    Good performance by the reader, the story is good but because it spans over 30 years I didn't think it was as revealing as it could have been!

    "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.
