Moyes Finds Time…For his predecessor’s best selling book

David Moyes David Moyes said he was too busy to read Sir Alex Ferguson’s autobiography when it was released last month.

Well, it seems like a Champions League break in Spain has now afforded the new Manchester United boss the time to enjoy his predecessor’s memoirs.

Moyes was snapped at Manchester airport on Monday before boarding the flight ahead of Tuesday’s match against Real Sociedad.
And, when the Old Trafford chief dipped into his suitcase for some paperwork, carefully packed atop his belongings was Fergie’s self-titled autobiography.

Following its release, Moyes, when asked if he would be reading the book, replied: “I’m sure when the time arises I will. I’ve not got much time in this job, that’s for sure.”

It was suggested that Moyes may have been scouring the read for managerial tips, especially given their stuttering start to the season.
But United’s fortunes have improved of late and they have now won four on the spin in all competitions.

Paralleled with that success has been the record sales of Ferguson’s book, for it is now the fastest-selling non-fiction of all time having shifted 115,547 copies in one week.

The previous record holder was Delia Smith’s How To Cook: Book Two which sold 112,000 copies in its first week, nearly 14 years ago.
Sir Alex’s book was well ahead of many other big-name memoirs for their first week on the shelves, including Tony Blair’s book A Journey which sold 92,000 copies three years ago and David Beckham’s My Side, which achieved 86,000 first-week sales a decade ago. – Mail
