Sir Alex Ferguson's compelling story is always honest and revealing he reflects on his managerial career that embraced unprecedented European success for Aberdeen and 26 triumphant seasons with Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson's best-selling autobiography has now been updated to offer reflections on events at Manchester United since his retirement as well as his teachings at the Harvard Business School, a night at the Oscars and a boat tour round the Hebrides, where he passed unrecognised.

The extra material adds fresh insights and detail on his final years as United's manager.

Both the psychology of management and the detail of football strategy at the top level can be complex matters but no-one has explained them in a more interesting and accessible way for the general reader than Sir Alex does here.

My Autobiography is revealing, endlessly entertaining and above all inspirational.

An official access all areas, cinematic documentary celebrating Ryan Giggs’ illustrious career at Manchester United Football Club. Directed by Daniel Mendelle, Life of Ryan combines video diary footage with archive film of the footballing legend’s career, along with a rare glimpse into Ryan’s other passions outside the beautiful game.

Currently assistant manager at Manchester United F.C., Ryan Giggs is celebrated as having the longest Premier League career to date, having played 1,027 games and won 34 trophies over the course of a career spanning almost 8,000 days. Thanks to this, he is now one of the most famous and successful footballers in history, and is regarded as a true legend of the modern game.

Life of Ryan comes from the producers of the acclaimed sporting documentary film The Class of 92, which detailed the rise to prominence of the infamous six Manchester United footballers who joined the team along with Ryan Giggs in the early 1990s, and whose careers have been in the global spotlight ever since.

The film also features high profile interviews with his Class of 92 teammates David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Phil Neville, Gary Neville and Nicky Butt, plus sporting icons Rio Ferdinand, Diego Maradona and former manager Sir Alex Ferguson, along with current Manchester United players including Darren Fletcher and Michael Carrick.

Manchester United fans have a fickle reputation. Players are often singled out for criticism while others can get away with murder. This was never truer than in the late 1980s when Ferguson, following a stuttering start to his Old Trafford career, was scapegoated by supporters. In 1989, when United faced relegation and a take-over bid, the manager lived with the constant threat of the sack while on the terraces the 'Ferguson out' brigade were prominent, as the press spoke of a club in crisis. Here the author, one of the few to have actively supported United's manager during this bleak period, details his remarkable relationship with United's legendary manager.

21 years after its publication, a new edition is being published with updated text and new chapters as well as a new Introduction, written by one of the book's many fans and the biggest name in British football, Sir Alex Ferguson. But this is a book about much, much more than football It is loved not only by Sir Alex but also by Gordon Brown, Alistair Campbell, Ian Rankin and the Rev Kathy Galloway and it was a huge favourite of poet, George Mackay Brown. So why have the trials and tribulations of Cowdenbeath football club - one of the most unsuccessful football clubs in Britain - excited the imagination even of those who have no interest in football and who have never been to Cowdenbeath? Cowdenbeath's story is set against the rise and decline of the local mining industry and the life after mining. It is very funny, deeply spiritual, moving and also a little bit political. But what makes it so interesting to so many groups is the uplifting story of a real community spirit throughout all of the ups and downs of a town and a football club that is at its social heart and core. It is also the most autobiographical book that Ron Ferguson has written, never taking himself very seriously. The book's quirkiness appeals across the religious, local, national, and footballing worlds. Long out of print, this is the new and updated 21st-anniversary edition.

The Real Mackay tells the life story of one of football's genuine legends, a man whose presence in any team spurred them on to championship-winning form: Dave Mackay. It is the refreshing, honest and action-packed autobiography of a man who was at the centre of many of the biggest stories of British football for almost three decades. Mackay debuted for Hearts in 1953, by which time he had already made his mark at junior level. At the time he signed for the Edinburgh club, they had not won a major honour for almost fifty years; but over the next six seasons, Hearts went on to win the Scottish Cup and League, as well as twice winning the Scottish League Cup. It is no coincidence that Mackay's arrival at Tynecastle marked the beginning of what is now viewed as the club's golden age. In 1959, Dave was transferred south to join Tottenham Hotspur, who were at that time languishing near the foot of the English First Division. During the 1960-61 season, Spurs became the first side in the twentieth century to win the Double and went on to win the FA Cup twice more, along with the European Cup-Winners' Cup. In 1968, Mackay joined Derby County, who were lowly placed in the English Second Division. As captain, he led the team up the table and they finished as champions. Mackay was awarded the coveted Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year trophy - a fitting end to a remarkable playing career. In this absorbing autobiography, Mackay revisits his glorious playing days and reflects on his subsequent managerial career. He reveals details of his time as a successful manager in the developing Middle East game and recounts that on his return to management in England he discovered that football had changed radically. The Real Mackay is as uncompromising, determined and controversial as the player himself.

Sir Alex announced his retirement as manager of Manchester United after 27 years in the role. He has gone out in a blaze of glory, with United winning the Premier League for the 13th time, and he is widely considered to be the greatest manager in the history of British football. Over the last quarter of a century there have been seismic changes at Manchester United. The only constant element has been the quality of the manager's league-winning squad and United's run of success, which included winning the Champions League for a second time in 2008. Sir Alex created a purposeful, but welcoming, and much envied culture at the club which has lasted the test of time. Sir Alex saw Manchester United change from a conventional football club to what is now a major business enterprise, and he never failed to move with the times. It was directly due to his vision, energy and ability that he was able to build teams both on and off the pitch. He was a man-manager of phenomenal skill, and increasingly he had to deal with global stars. His relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo, for instance, was excellent and David Beckham has described Sir Alex as a father figure. Over the past four years, Sir Alex has been reflecting on and jotting down the highlights of his extraordinary career and in his new book he will reveal his amazing story as it unfolded, from his very early days in the tough shipyard areas of Govan.
