Veteran team manager Alex Ferguson reveals the philosophy that drove the English Premier League soccer club Manchester United to sustained success. Ferguson managed Manchester United for 26 years as it won 38 trophies, including 13 Premier League and two Champions League titles. Ferguson writes with Michael Moritz, chairman of the investment firm Sequoia Capital and an avid fan of soccer, which is what almost everyone in the world – except Americans – calls football. Ferguson’s advice on life and a host of subjects, most notably soccer, spring from wide-ranging discussions with Moritz. This gives the book the nice flavor of an extended conversation. getAbstract recommends his account to those who are passionately interested in leadership and soccer, both of the sports he mastered.
