Alan Curbishley reveals the secrets of how a small club like Charlton Athletic achieved success -- from the boardroom and manager's office down to the dressing room and pitchside. Now manager at West Ham, he updates his story with all the drama of a nerve-wracking conclusion to the 2006-07 season. Alan Curbishley encountered most of football's ill winds during the 15 years he was coach, co-manager, then sole manager of Charlton -- a club once homeless, with gates of less than 3000, forced to sell players to pay the wages and to buy replacement kit for the first team, and teetering on the brink of extinction. In his book, Curbishley opens the lid on the soap opera that is Charlton FC. He writes about the political manoeuvrings behind the club's departure and their emotional return to The Valley. He describes how they were torn apart by drugs allegations involving three of its players, including a youthful Lee Bowyer. He re-lives the tortuous rollercoaster ride of falling out of the Premiership two years later before returning in 1999/2000. And he gives an insider's view of the club's success in establishing itself in the world's toughest league.He also talks candidly about being shortlisted for the England manager's job. In this fully updated paperback edition, he unveils the clandestine meetings that led to his departure from the Valley to join his boyhood club, West Ham, and looks at the upheavels at Upton Park that saw him out of the comfort zone and into the melting pot as the Hammers battled against relegation from the Premiership. His book is a radical insight into the workings of a football club and its staff, and is sure to interest football fans across the country.

    Great tips. I've used an app called "Business Messenger" that's really helped me be more productive. bzm.gr. It adds text to my desktop office number, and I can send texts from my phone, computer or tablet. Seems to be more efficient with my clients and it's free. Check out in app store or bit.ly/1qVQWYq.

      The big choice will be governed by how long Audible and ACX control the rights to the finished product. If it's seven years Р that may be bearable. Longer, and I don't think so. They do the distribution for their cut Р and audio are huge files compared to the epubs and mobis and pdfs people could manage on their own websites: many hours worth of audio files to transmit, many more chances for digital disruption of the files.

    Do you include days of the week and perhaps times and/or number of hours? When being asked to wait for a runner to bring something back I've often found it hard to establish exactly when that will be.
