Ghana Head Coach, Kwasi Appiah is set to launch a book which will tell his life story on his journey to coaching career.
The book titled "Leaders Don’t Have to Yell" which contains 400 pages is scheduled to be launched in December.
To many who don't know, Coach Kwasi Appiah started his football career in the 1980s', captaining Asante Kotoko and Ghana national team in his playing days and he's currently the head coach of Ghana national team which might come to an end by December if his contract is not renewed.
He will be dishing out his wealth of experience as a leader and his football career story along side it in his new book.
Appiah wrote on the back of the book why he wrote the book and what the people will gain from reading the book. He wrote:
“Very few people have had the opportunity to walk the path that my life has taken. As a result, I have seen things that only a few people have seen; I have had experiences that only a few people have had; and I have perspectives that only a few people have. Until now, the stories about the things I have seen, the experiences I have had and my perspectives on issues have been shared with only a relatively small group of people. So, as I thought about what purpose a book from me will serve, I became convinced that the time to commit my experiences and ideas into writing is now.”
“While my stories and perspectives are mainly from the world of football, I hope that the lessons and the inspiration they provide will be useful to footballers, coaches, and administrators, as well as to the fans and those who have little or no interest in football.”
The book is co-authored by Kyei Amoako who indicated that the book will be launched with events in Kumasi, Sunyani and Accra in December, and more information about the book launch will be made public as time goes on.
