The new book Siya Kolisi: Against All Odds by Jeremy Daniels has caused a debate among book lovers.
The book has been written and published without the Springboks captain's approval.
Kolisi sent a message via various social media platforms that he did not authorise the book.
Eusebius McKaiser says it is not unusual for publishers to publish an unauthorised autobiography but the book by Daniels is misleading.
Message from Siya Kolisi: "To clear any confusion, the book published about me with my name on the cover, wasn't written by me or produced with my approval or even knowledge." #SettingTheRecordStraight— Springboks (@Springboks) August 28, 2019
I think there is nothing wrong with an unauthorised biography, it happens the world over. Not every subject of interest publicly will give permission for you to write about them. From a legal point of view, it is acceptable.— Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
From this particular point of view, I just think that the cover design, the prominence of Siya's face and name is deceptively positioned to give the impression to someone casually walking to Exclusive Books that this was authored by Siya or Siya with a sports journalist or at least endorsed by Siya.— Eusebius McKaiser, Show host
