One customer has been offered his money back after complaining to the publisher about dozens of factual errors in Sir Alex Ferguson's book.
Hodder and Stoughton have agreed to reimburse the disgruntled fan after 45 factual errors were pointed out in the 402-page book.
Among the many inaccuracies highlighted were his claim that United had 11 years out of former captain Roy Keane, when it was in fact 12.
Fair enough, you might think; except that the match was actually played in 2010.
The book goes on to state that United legend Ryan Giggs made his debut for the club at the age of 16, when in fact he was 17; and perhaps most bizarrely of all, the ex-Red Devils boss recalled the time when his pacemaker was fitted in April 2002, despite the fact that it was actually put in two years later, in March 2004.
The CEO of Hodder and Stoughton, Jamie Hodder-Williams, is understood to have replied by email to the individual in question, offering a full refund in exchange for the return of Fergie's second autobiography.
Fergie's second account of his life - his first autobiography came out back in 2000 - became the UK's fastest-selling non-fiction book since records began as 115,547 copies were sold in the first week of sales.
And while the publisher will be popping champagne corks over that news, it seems that they had an uphill battle with the manuscript that they were delivered. Reading between the lines of the company's response to their unhappy buyer, it sounds as if there were almost as many errors in the original text as there were copies of the book sold.
The Daily Mirror reports that Hodder-Williams wrote to the customer to explain that, "We did in fact go through several stages of fact-checking with this book, with a reading from within Manchester United as well as from a specialist football fact-checker.
"Although a very large number of corrections were made we plainly did not pick up everything.
"Possible corrections that have so far been helpfully pointed out are being checked and will be included in future reprints.
"I am sorry that you feel that your expenditure on the book was not worthwhile. If you would like to send the book to me at our head office address, stating where you bought the book and at what price, we will refund your expenditure and postage."
A spokeswoman for Hodder and Stoughton confirmed : "A member of the public did write in saying that he had found errors in the book and was not happy.
"He didn’t say what the errors were. We have written to him and said that if he is not happy with his purchase he should send in the book and we will refund the purchase price."
The company have not confirmed whether or not the customer took up the offer - nor have they said whether or not the £25 will be recouped from the £2 million advance they paid Ferguson for the right to publish his story.
