Fergie Rises: The Making Of Britain's Greatest Football Manager
- Hardback - Aurum
Alex Ferguson was not the greatest manager football has ever seen when he turned up in Aberdeen one June morning in 1978. In fact he really wasn't anything special at all. 'Fergie Rises' is the story of a period that began when Ferguson was lucky to get Aberdeen, not the other way around. It is the story of an eight-year revolution in which he outgrew that club up in the northeast of Scotland - and left them devastated by his departure.
Maclean's Whiskypedia: A Gazeteer Of Scotch Whisky
- Paperback - Birlinn
Why does Scotch whisky taste as it does? Where do the flavours come from? How might they have changed over the years? The flavour of Scotch whisky is as much influenced by history, craft and tradition as it is by science. This book explores these influences. Introductory sections provide an historical overview, and an explanation of the contribution made by each stage of the production process. Each entry provides a brief account of the distillery's history and curiosities, lists the bottlings which are currently available, details how the whisky is made, and explores the flavour and character of each make. Charles MacLean has spent 30 years researching, writing and lecturing about Scotch whisky. 'Maclean's Whiskypedia' is the result of deep immersion in its subject. It will guide, entertain and inform novices and experts alike.
