Black Stars head coach Kwasi Appiah is set to launch a book titled “Leaders Don’t Have to Yell" with a subtitle “National Team Coach on Leading High-Performing Teams” in December.
The 400-page book is expected to let readers know about how the former Asante Kotoko defender started from humble beginnings and what the future holds for Ghana Football.
On the back of the book, Appiah shares why he wrote the book. A portion of what he said is included below:
“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.”
Appiah continues with what he hopes readers will get from reading the book:
“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’s foreword is written by journalist and SWAG president Kwabena Yeboah.
