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.

There are no reviews for this title yet.
As a Liverpool fan, I wanted this to hear a few things from Sir Alex's point of view, having spent a lot of time putting him down during his time at United. I should also mention I'm Scottish and after finishing this title in proud to say so. This book is great and Sir Alex is worth of his title as one of the best. A must for any football fan!
"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.
Glad I downloaded this book, what a great insight to a great manager both in Scotland and England & enjoyed the read
"Well read, reasonably interesting"
James Macpherson's reading of this sets a good tone to the book with a believable dialect and some good intonation.
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.
Fantastic insight in to the life of a footballing genius. I would highly recommend this book to any football fan irrespective of which club you support.
Great insight to Alex Ferguson's life as manager of man utd amazing stories of his leadership style of running this football club
Not a chance.
I have never been a massive fan of autobiographies, as, in the main, they do tend to be self-indulgent drivel and this is no exception. I am a huge United fan and even that couldn't save me. Whilst there were interesting issues raised and good observations in the book, it's all just a bit dull and uninteresting in my opinion...and very self-indulgent in places. I also didn't like the way it was written, it was full of individual chapters about specific people, clubs, events, etc....there were often no coherent links from chapter to chapter and this resulted in quite a bit of repetition throughout. It didn't feel like much thought had gone into the writing of the book and it smacked of a cynical money making exercise to me.
I thought the reader was excellent and did a good job, although I would seriously question the idiot who decided the odd (and I mean perhaps 3 or 4 in the whole book) swear word in the book needed to be 'bleeped' out of the reading...I mean, seriously?
All in all I wouldn't recommend, unless you are a particularly keen fan of autobiographies.
"Self important arse"
Listening to this book would have you believe that mr furguson is a wine loving book reading intellectual, maybe he is but I am not convinced
"An Interesting Insight"
I liked his candid view of the world of football with its primadonnas
Hearing about the tricks Paul Scholes played on the other players at Carrington
The View From The Touchline
Enjoyed it immensly
"Interesting, great narrator, skirts some issues"
One of the best.
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)
The narrator was excellent, and I quite enjoyed his attempt at impersonating players' accents such as Quinton Fortune.
It wasn't a particularly emotional book - more factual.
I felt 'Fergie' skirted around some issues such as the Pogba situation and also Wayne Rooney's second transfer request.
