Publisher's Summary

What does it take to lead a team to world-class success over a sustained period of time?Sir Alex Ferguson is one of the few leaders who truly knows. In his 38 years in management, Sir Alex won an astonishing 49 trophies and helped grow Manchester United into one of the biggest commercial brands in the world.

In this inspirational and straight-talking new book, Sir Alex reveals the secrets behind his record-breaking career.

Leading is structured around the key skills that Sir Alex values most highly. It includes subjects we immediately associate with his managerial style: Discipline, Control, Teamwork and Motivation. But it also addresses subjects that are less obvious but no less important when seeking success: Delegation, Data Analysis and Dealing with Failure.

Written with the investor Sir Michael Moritz, a longstanding friend of Sir Alex, Leading is packed with insight, wisdom, humour and honesty. The individual stories inevitably concern themselves with football, and the phenomenal success that came along the way, but the lessons can be applied by anyone. Whether you run a business, teach in a classroom, or work in a small team, Leading will help you become a better leader.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Poor"

    Repeats the same uninsightful comments. Disjointed chapters, with a lack of flow. Very limited business relevance or use.

    "Excellent and inspiring"

    Great narration and story, I'm not a United fan but while the book is mainly centred around United it is the ethos, actions and learning curve that got my attention. Seeing the bigger picture and getting the best out people worth investing in.

    "Well worth a listen"

    As someone who followed Alex Fergusons career I found this very interesting.

    Ferguson gives details of dealing with players and advice on how he progressed in his field.

    I would say if your weren't a football fan and wanted a leadership book there are better options available. But for anyone who would like a crossover between sport and work/business this would be worth a listen.

    The narration is good, its not by Ferguson but the Scottish narrator gives it an authentic feel.

    "Typical Ferguson Arrogance "

    This is nothing we haven't heard before from ferguson if I'm being honest. It's a story of how he managed United no more.
    Interesting as it may be if you've never read one of his before this book will not serve to educate anyone other than the aspiring football team manager. rarely does he talk about a combined effort or give credit to players and staff that got him were he is.
    It's all about him.
    The last chapter is a mystery also.

    "Interesting but a biog not a business book"

    I'm a football fan so I enjoyed this book and understood all the references, knew the players and matches being discussed etc. I'm pleased I listened...

    BUT...

    this is not really a book on leadership. It's much more like a biography of AF. What lessons did I take away from this to apply to my working life? Nothing really. The lessons are not that transferrable and the author doesn't really try to apply them either.

    So if you're interested in football and football management, you'll enjoy this book. If you want to develop your leadership skills in any other environment, look elsewhere.

    If you could sum up Leading in three words, what would they be?

    Great insight into one of the best managers of all time - really enjoyed it - lots of old stories, ex players and more!
