About the Author

MICHAEL GRANT is chief football writer for the Herald and has written about the game since the 1980s, covering three World Cups and three European Championships. He has been a regular presenter and guest on BBC radio. As an Aberdeen supporter from childhood, he lived through the astonishing transformation of that club during Alex Ferguson's years as manager from 1978 to 1986. His first book was The Management: Scotland's Great Football Bosses, co-written with Rob Robertson in 2010. It was shortlisted at the British Sports Book Awards 2012. At Pittodrie he can be found in the press seats for work and the South Stand for pleasure. When Aberdeen talk of moving to a new ground he puts his fingers in his ears.

Reviews

'The glut of books on Alex Ferguson's Manchester United Revolution is exactly why this one is so interesting. A neat idea by an author whose account is superbly written.' Scotsman 'Best Scottish sports reads of 2014' 'This is a book that takes the evidence from a series of witnesses to burgeoning genius. The testimonies are stunning, insightful, sometimes bitter, mostly awed and regularly funny.' The Herald 'Having interviewed many of those under Fergie's Pittodrie stewardship, he brings much fresh insight into a period covered too briefly in his autobiography.' FourFourTwo 'The most fascinating part of Alex Ferguson's career is his eight years taking Aberdeen from no-hopers to beating Real Madrid in a European Final. All the greatest stories have a beginning and this is it.' Shortlist 'Thoughtful and informative.' -- Kevin McCarra The Times 'Excellent new tome.' -- Stephen McGowan Scottish Daily Mail 'A masterful re-telling of how Ferguson was "made" at Aberdeen.' -- Alan Pattullo Scotsman 'It is Grant's own passion that permeates and defines Fergie Rises and makes it the book that all of us would have loved to have written.' -- David Innes Aberdeen Voice 'Grant has painted a vivid tableau of a bygone age on a giant-sized canvas.' -- Neil Drysdale STV Aberdeen
