Sir Alex Ferguson: Manchester United great to release another book - Manchester Evening News
Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is releasing another book this autmun.
Billed as an 'inspirational new book about leadership', the book will be co-written by the investor and author Sir Michael Moritz and will investigate Ferguson's 38-year managerial career.
Published by Hodder & Stoughton, the book will reveal 'the key tools he used to deliver sustained success on and off the field. From tactics to teamwork, from hiring to firing, from dealing with the boardroom to responding to failure, the book will analyse the pivotal leadership decisions of an astonishing career.'
Ferguson's second autobiography was only released in October 2013, with a revised version published late last year.
The Scot won 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups, four League Cups, two Champions Leagues, the Intercontinental Cup, the Club World Cup and the European Cup Winners' Cup during 26-and-a-half glittering years at Old Trafford.
Ferguson said: "Since stepping into retirement I have had the opportunity to reflect on my time as a football manager, and to consider the reasons behind my success through personal recollections, conversations with Mike Moritz and my role at Harvard Business School.
"It has been a new experience for me to be looking into the past rather than planning for the future, but one that I have found enjoyable and rewarding.
"The process behind creating this book began many years ago following my first meeting with Mike, which immediately created a mutual respect for each other’s achievements.
"Over the past year, we have spent many hours together as we have worked our way through my life in order to draw out and discuss the key philosophies I applied during my career.
"I have been delighted by Mike’s approach and the quality of his work, I am sure the readers will appreciate what he has brought to the page. I could not have had a better partner for this project."
