Prominent KCOB, and Executive Vice President and Chief Business Officer at Morehouse College, Gerald Hector, has published his first book. The book is titled, “It's Easy 'Son', Quit Making Things Difficult: Lasting Life Lessons from a Coach and Mentor.”

Gerald’s book depicts the value of mentorship by way of the lasting life lessons Coach Moultrie imparted to his students. Coach Moultrie's timeless quotes are the catalyst for this memoir as illustrated by his life-long devotion to his students. His influence reaches far beyond his years coaching at Howard University and informs the decisions many of his proteges make to this day.

The author does a brilliant job capturing those lessons and applying them to today's challenges and beyond. Jamaican patois peppered throughout the book adds flavor and humor.

This book is sure to inspire readers to view life's milestones and challenges in a new light.

Coach Moultrie was Gerald’s track and field coach at Howard University. He became his mentor and friend. And Gerald would spend many hours in his office learning not only about track and field, but also about life.

Gerald’s book is available on Amazon.com
