Release date set for Cody autobiography

Kilkenny hurling boss Brian Cody will release his autobiography 'Cody' on September 28.

As well as recapturing the highs and lows of his playing career and managerial career, 'Cody' also includes a personal diary of Kilkenny's momentuous 2009 All-Ireland success.

Cody will reveal his beliefs and philosophies, which have been central to the creation of the most successful GAA team since the turn of the millennium.

“This is a hurling book,” said Cody, “but, I believe it is also a book for sports people and business people, and people in every walk of life. I know that the difference between winning and losing can be minute, and I hope that in my book people can see what exactly has made the difference for the Kilkenny hurling team.

“This book is about pride, it is about self-belief, and it is about ambition. More than anything else, however, it is also about humility and the absolutely vital importance of understanding that every single day of your life, whether you are a sports person or not, is a day to be discovered and challenged.

“This book, I suppose, is really the story of a man who has had the privilege of leading an extremely talented group of people – on the field and off the field – in search of a unique achievement. Leading those great people, helping them, and being helped by them, that’s my story in ‘Cody’."
