From AFL wooden-spooners in 1998 to triple premiers in 2003, the Brisbane Lions and their fans have had quite a ride. One of the men at the front of the rollercoaster has been outspoken midfielder Jason Akermanis.
It was perhaps inevitable that a player with so much talent and so much to say would one day write a book. That day has arrived, and the story promises to be honest and hard-hitting.
Through his autobiography, Aka aims to give teenagers and young adults the courage to confront their issues by detailing his own - right down to the day when at age 15, he was told he would never play football, or any other sport, again, after a serious accident.
His slow and painful recovery and eventual rise through the ranks to become one of the greats of Australian Football is a truly inspirational story, and one which will touch, delight and amaze readers across the nation this Christmas.
