    Written as a collection of anecdotes this book tries to condense Sir Alex's philosophy into a set of principles by which to live In my opinion this is not so much a book about management or leadership as it is about work ethicSir Alex Ferguson typifies the stolid Scottish Work ethic and than anything else this book succeeds in crystallizing that work ethic and shaping it into a coherent wholeDo not expect any mind bending management philosophy here Sir Alex does not magically reveal a trick or two that enabled him build the mammoth organization that Manchester United is today Instead what is offered up are pithy timeless pieces of advice 'Reach work early' 'Be disciplined and focus' 'Build rather than buy' these are the building blocks that populate the framework of Si Alex's thinkingFor me this book works because it goes back to the basics and in this world of productivity apps and GTD philosophies which are fantastic tools in their own right this is a refreshing book that extols some timeless principles of success

    Do you want to know some hot news about David Beckham? About Wayne Rooney or about Cristiano Ronaldo? Yes? Then do not read this book because you won't find here any In this book you will find very interesting comparison of the work of football managers and of CEOs sales managers etc They have uite a lot in common I have never read such a long epilogue as the one in this book The epilogue is really long but you will find there interesting comparison of ManU and Sillicon Valley companies Well written contains lot of great information For someone who likes football and works as a manager I would say that this is a must read book

    The book is a second go at Sir Alex's biography this time focusing solely on his leadership skills A very enjoyable read indeed But then again I found the following to be a bit annoying at times1 99% of the book is dedicated at how Sir Alex has done everything right Even sometimes criticizing his own critics and trying to defend his decisions Perhaps a bit of modesty or sharing anecdotes regarding the things that went wrong would have helped the tone of the book to shift sometimes2 The co author knows not much about leadership For instance he writes in the last chapter of the book which is unnecessarily lengthy that introverts don't make good leaders I have read many books on leadership and can tell you that it is an absolute bull Every contemporary MBA knows that the notion is wrongI enjoyed the book as I am a Manchester United fan The mono tone of the book made it a bit tedious towards the end but I learnt a few points from it

    More or less what you'd expect if you invite a monstrously competitive person to spend 400 pages telling you why they were so successful But it has lots of insight and you come away thinking that you'd want to be on the same team as him There is a postscript by someone involved in finance in Silicon Valley which is preposterous pondering the similarities with the world Sir Alex inhabited with the world of elite IT Doesn't understand that whilst we might like to be as rich as the founder of Google or Intel what we dream about doing is winning titles and cups

    This is a superb profoundly interesting account of the man who has reigned at the top of a sprawling footballing conglomerate for 26 years There is something for everyone to take away from this book even if you are not a football fan It spans the entire spectrum covering Sir Alex Ferguson's childhood in Govan a town in Glasgow Scotland his playing career and his managerial stints in three Scottish clubs before he landed at the club where uarter of a century later he will have a bronze statue and a stand bearing his name in the famous red of Manchester United This is a tale of a very successful man who made winning a habit and inculcated that habit into this organization Most importantly he maintained the habit till he left the club so much so that Manchester United is synonymous with Sir Alex FergusonSir Alex writes thoughtfully and candidly The best part that I liked about this book is that Sir Alex didn't hold back anything he named names and is surprisingly open Some very interesting aspects of his tenure are discussed in vivid detail and often it felt like reading the man's mind His iron grip on the dressing room coupled with relentless hunger of being and staying the best remain unmatched in footballing world Football is littered with examples of how great wildly successful managers lose the dressing room Jose Mourinho in Chelsea and Manchester United Carlo Ancelloti in Bayern Munich Antonio Conte in Chelsea are very recent examples of magnificent managers losing the dressing room and succumbing to player power And this is where the title of the book is apt; it's called 'Leading' not 'Managing' Very few football managers become leaders Perhaps Diego Simone in Atletico Madrid can be called a leader but he has not spent a decade at the helm of his club yet The fact that Sir Alex was the supreme authority among his players coaching staff and others in the football club for than two decades is a testament of how he practiced control and discipline Being able to retain that control with so many players coming from all corners of the world and translating that control into success by playing well on the pitch is unmatched in footballing history Although I am not a Manchester United supporter that doesn't stop me from appreciating how charismatic and brilliant Sir Alex was in his tenure at the club Nobody knows whether football will have such a leader again However I do feel that a little bit of humility along with anecdote and explanation of why things went wrong when they did would have made this a 'human' read But again it maybe wrong to expect that in a book written by such a competitive person

    Sir Alex Ferguson was is and will always be one of my heroes By reading this book I have learned a lot not just about his life and thoughts but also about football and managing and leading

    My introduction to the world of Premier Leagues has been very very recentor lets say nascent However reading this book gives immense perspective towards situations and most importantly circumstances that changed during the period Alex Fergusson managed the team His style of writing and refreshingly lucid and is not preachy at any point It is one of those rare books that focusses on circumstances decisions and mistakes taken in that position It is honest and raw I happened to make the mistake of reading reviews before picking up this book and my advice to anyone reading this review would be to pay immense amount of attention to approach and circumstance Do not look at it as a bible for management but to view management decisions that Alex Fergusson took based on situation I definitely picked up a thing or two The mantle the manager of a football team carries is very akin to the decision of a business owner5 stars from me

    Ferguson is a proven entity in leadership Possessing an ability to see what others often overlook Ferguson consistently demonstrates the importance of harnessing this skill achieving that which few dare to dream Read every book by one of life's great thinkers and even greater listeners
