A good listen

A good listen with lots of good insight. A bit annoying that the chapter headings weren’t printed as I wanted to go back to re-listen to some points but found it difficult to find due to no chapter titles. A good listen if you’ve read Sir Alex’s other book on Managing and coaching

Damian delivers again.

What better way to learn about leadership, life and managing yourself and others. Damian brings it all to life in a gripping and intriguing way with stories from one of footballs most iconic characters. I’d highly recommend all of Damian’s Audiobooks

Neither textbook nor biography

An interesting attempt to bridge two areas of interest - but in my view there are better motivational books and better books about Fergie. Enjoyable nonetheless.
