"Excellent." -- Christian O'Connell XFM radio, 20 Sept "One of the most insightful and respected journalists working in the game... a compelling, believable profile." -- Leo McKinstry THE SUNDAY TELEGRAPH, 25 Sept "One of the UK's leading football writers assesses the UK's leading football manager... Barclay is always worth reading." OBSERVER SPORT MONTHLY, 2 Oct "This is a special book by a special writer. Five stars" FOURFOURTWO "'An illuminating, thought-provoking and highly entertaining book by one of Britain's sharpest and most erudite football writers'.' WORLD SOCCER "A fine biography" NEW STATESMAN, 19 December "A rounded and entirely fair portrait, written with a good deal of wit and insight." DAILY TELEGRAPH, 15 December "Barclay resists producing a straightforward biographical account of Mourinho's inimitable rise... he instead builds up an informal picture of the man via an unusual cast of faithful witnesses. It is this determination to search out the sometimes less obvious characters which makes this narrative so compelling. Barclay offers a detailed and contemplative study. a refreshing change." THE SCOTSMAN, 17 December "Well informed... it puts flesh on the headlines, usually with a well-informed phrase." THE INDEPENDENT, 17 December
-When Jose Mourinho realised as a teenager that he was never going to be a great player, he decided he was going to become the best coach in the world. At 42, many would say he's done that - probably including Mourinho, who has called himself the Special One. From translator and assistant to Sir Bobby Robson at Barcelona, to Champions League-winning manager at Porto and on to (potentially) Europe's most successful football club at Chelsea, Jose Mourinho's ascent has been rapid. Backed by Abramovich's billions, Mourinho has weeded out those not fully committed to his methods, has made several astute signings and has improved the game of many Chelsea stars. The result: in his first season, Chelsea won both the Premier League title and the Carling Cup. Patrick Barclay, award-winning football correspondent of the Sunday Telegraph, has written an intelligent, analytical and concise account of the psychology of Mourinho. To develop this portrait, he has interviewed those who have worked with him, such as Sir Bobby Robson and Louis van Gaal, as well as the players who provide a revealing insight into what has made Mourinho the most successful manager in the world at the moment.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

Patrick Barclay damns Mourinho with very faint praise and rehashes a lot of the old Jose myths and tall tales.
The writing is laboured and overarching as though Barclay feels superior to his subject matter ( football management) and his main target( Mourinho).Barclay accuses Mourinho of doing a lot of things he himself ends up doing in the book.He is humourless,unsmiling and thinks a lot more of his own pseudo analysis than anybody else's views.
Its an easy, effortless read but it is also frustratingly thin and inconsequential and adds very little to our understanding of the Portuguese maestro other than he loves his wife and children and Portugal.Barclay is way too superior to mention it but there is a lot of Jose's alleged arrogance scarring every page of this under achieving book.
Covering his controversies and managerial issues, this book gives a good peek into the character o Jose Mourinho. As the title of the book says, it is about the anatomy of Mourinho, his work persona, family persona, how he became what he is today. Many people (including me) fail to realize his struggles and hardships before he became the legendary manager he is today and this book made me aware of that reality, before Jose was Jose Mourinho.
With straight from the heart interviews from his gurus and coworkers and friends, Barclay has done a great job of profiling Mourinho. Again, this book is not about Mourinho's managerial strategies, but his managing gets its due mention. It is about Mourinho as a man, as a person, his 'anatomy' and the writing could not be more perfectly aligned with the theme of the book. Dont expect to read, "Mourinho decided to mark Ronaldinho with Khalid Boularouz and that changed everything" in this book. Rather, if you are lookign to understand what Jose stands for in football, among journalists, among fans, his public stature and personal endurance, this book is perfect for you. The only reason it got 4 stars instead of 5 was that it may be a bit too short. I wish it went for a 100 more pages.
The book opens a bit slow, but it honors the critiques posted within it. It is interesting, and insightful, to the appropriate level. There is little to no contribution from Mourinho to this book, so that is gap, but the content does not lose any value because of that.
