Présentation de l'éditeur
This book is about the beginning of Sir Alex's football career, until the year 2000.
1999 was an outstanding year for Alex Ferguson - not only did he lead Manchester United, the most glamorous club in the world, to a unique and outstanding treble triumph, but he was awarded the highest honour for his sporting achievements; a Knighthood from the Queen. Universally respected for his tough, but caring managerial style, Ferguson is an unusually intelligent man with a fascinating life story. Covering his tough Govan upbringing through to his playing days and onto his shift into management, Managing My Life is told with the fine balance of biting controversy and human sensitivity which made it such an unprecedented success in hardback. Alex Ferguson is a legend in his lifetime.

This autobiography shows how a seemingly ordinary man was able to achieve phenomenal success in his managerial career. Alex HATES to be on the losing side and this is a major motivation for him to achieve success constantly on the pitch and on his personal life.
I would love to recommend this book to all Manchester United fans as well as sports psychologists and people working in a competitive environment. To achieve success (in whatever field), one MUST have confidence in his/her own ability and take on the world like a soldier on the battlefield. People with low self-esteem should read this book to bring out their own competitive nature.
Finally,the statistics which show Alex Ferguson's playing and managerial record (at the end of the book) is indeed invaluable to the true soccer fan. This provides the "icing on the cake" for this honest work of brilliance by Ferguson.
* As with most football autobiographies, it is a perfect opportune for the author to write things from his own perspective, and more often than not, there are criticisms involving players and managers. Perhaps not coincidentally, United have many of the famous players at that time, including Ronaldo, Beckham and Wayne Rooney. (He once made Beckham shave off his Mohawk in the United dressing room.)
* As mentioned with the previous point of revealing things that the media does not know, we see how Alex Ferguson views himself as a person - he admits some decisions are difficult but also explains why they had to be made.
* We all have to see how this great manager rose to become one of the greatest because he stuck at his job even as the results did not show and ultimately his talent in managing teams shone.
