    1. I have discussed in other reviews, my tendency to obsess over things, Recently that thing (for the million of you that don't follow my reviews) is the beautiful game, soccer.Also, this goes into the fact that I am a hardcore gamer, I am one of these people who have strategy guides to games I don't own. I got into soccer, through football manager. Yes, a nerdy guy who never played sports and sucked at math, got HOOKED on a game that is the SPORTS and the NUMBERS. yeah.de no sense to me either.All [...]

    2. The football managers guide to football management is just what fans of the FM franchise need to combat The boredom until FM16 is released. Iain Mcintosh has written a humorous book you don't have to be a fan of The game to enjoy. The section on player roles and the chapter on transfers will be very helpful to those that play the game.

    3. The Football Manager Guide to Football ManagementIf you are looking for hints on how to play the computer game Football Manager than jog on pal this book is not for you. This book is aimed at those who wish to be a football manager or coach, especially those who think that they can do better than their team’s current manager. I am not sure I can better my team’s manager as Pep Guardiola has a somewhat excellent reputation.For those of us who need guidance to be on the road to fame fortune an [...]

    4. I purchased this book as i always enjoyed Iain Macintosh's appearances on The Guardian's Football Weekly podcast. I found his style of writing informal and easy to read. He has acquired some decent names to interview for his book. However, i think as another user wrote, i don't feel it delves too deep into the true intricacies of football management. Additionally, there is seldom reference to the game of football manager, which one would expect from the title. There are some amusing anecdotes fr [...]

    5. Een verzameling van anekdotes over voetbaltrainers aan de hand van de verschillende aspecten van het trainersbestaan. Leuke en grappige verhalen die met name gericht zijn op Engelse trainers. Wat dat betreft voor mij ook een kleine geschiedenisles.Op het spel Football Manager heeft het weinig betrekking. De koppeling tussen het spel en dit boek zit met name in de bewustwording wat erbij komt kijken om daadwerkelijk langs de kant van het veld te staan als eindverantwoordelijke en niet in je luie [...]

    6. Decent in places but largely average.I used to read books on football as a child that revolved around training drills, tactics and so on. This reads in a similar fashion to those, minus the illustrations and based on management rather than the playing side.It's not really a 'Football Manager guide' to anything. It's a bloke's guide to football management with a bit of FM thrown in towards the end.Bit disappointing that the book had so little to do with the gaming series.

    7. Great read and witty as alwaysI've become a huge fan of Iain Macintosh's work over the past years, and this read does not disappoint. A bit more serious with less Iain snark/humor than usual, but well written as always. The interviews and behind the scenes insights are fantastic.

    8. I enjoyed the book. It's a great sit-on-the-beach and have a quiet chuckle to oneself. But if you're looking for anything approaching depth of analysis on being a football manager, football management in general then I would suggest something else.Still worthwhile but very popcorn in nature.

    9. Reflexiones sobre las peculiaridades del oficio de entrenador de fútbol, en tono distendido y siempre desde la óptica del videojuego Football Manager.

    10. A small little book which is definitely not about the Football Manager game. The books gives us some insights into the world of football management. With anecdotes from England and a few from rest of the world the books proves to be an interesting read. The humor of the book will keep you gripped.

    11. I really enjoyed this book. Although I have played Football Manager a few times, I did not really read the book in relation to the electronic game, rather just as a relatively recent convert to the world of being a football fan. As a newcomer, it was a perfect knowledge-broadening book - I found I had enough experience to understand the book and for it to help me to understand the different management styles and conundrums, and it seemed to have more depth for people who have a longer history of [...]

    12. I enjoyed the book, especially the insight into the real events of various managers, to illustrate (often in a humorist way) the particular messages covering the different chapters. The author did cover the many tasks and attributes needed to be a successful football manager, some of which I had not previously considered.I originally bought the book to help me improve my management skills in order to play the PC edition of Football Manager 2016. However, I am not sure whether these skills can be [...]

    13. For those who purchased the book for insights/tips into FM whilst they are playing then they are more likely to be left disappointed. I guess the idea for the chapters of the book are designed for gamers to pick the information from real-life managers into their own game even though it isn’t explicitly stated at the start of the book – although the last few chapters are practical and helpful for FM16 players. I thought the book was written in an easy style, not too complicated but nice under [...]

    14. I was lured in by the football manager association but in reality it's link is rather tenuous. Each chapter is an area in which a football manager must manoeuvre (even the PC based ones) and filled with facts and football anecdotes. On the whole the chapters are interesting and as a Sunderland fan there were quite a few mentions of my beloved Black Cats which I thoroughly enjoyed. The writing is dark and comic, as dark as a non-fiction book about the specifics of football management can be. Over [...]

    15. As a devotee of the Football Manager game franchise I opened this book with much excitement. I mean the documentary on Football Manager was top rate so a book on it will be so much better, wont it?No is the short answer. I could end the review there but what fun is that. The book had some very interesting tales from real life Managers and this I enjoyed immensely. But overall I ended up feeling like the book was more a very fancy instruction book rather than a guide. I feel I never really gained [...]

    16. An interesting easy to read book with a lot of good stories about real life managers. Whilst the book did provide some useful tips for the game, not much of it focussed on the game as the title would suggest. As a result, this was just a nice book full of interesting stories but there wasn't much to learn with respect to the game.

    17. I got this because I've always enjoyed Iain Macintosh's appearances on the Guardian Football Weekly podcast, but was disappointed by it. It's maybe aimed at teens who have little knowledge of the subject, and doesn't provide much in the way of new insight. Some of the quotes obtained are interesting, and there are a few good jokes, but overall it's a bit light and fluffy for my tastes

    18. It seems like a nice overview of what being a football manager is like. It's also a collection of anecdotes from the football management world. A nice read.

    19. Funny and insightful look at the dark art of Football Management. Iain Macintosh writes with a smile on his face, one which most certainly ends up on the readers lips too.
