Review by zerorpm
This book is the story of Jose Mourinho on his journey from his first management post at Benfica up to his appointment at Chelsea.Although I found Jose a very interesting character I felt the book wasn't particularly revealing about his methods and psychology. It touches on that at points but mostly it just felt like a ramble through football results. I also noted the number of points that were made about certain 'run-ins' with people and this book attempts to clear up what really happened (i.e. with Benfica chairmen and certain players), from Jose's perspective of course. Perhaps it is my naivety that expected something different from this type of book (it was my first football autobiog). Also the writing tended to be quite patronising at parts like explaining that the 'eagle' is the club symbol etc..
