"The Quah Kim Song Story" is a 148-page book about football in Singapore and the region, as told in Kim Song's colourful football vernacular, which he jointly authored with freelance journalist and communications strategist Jacintha Stephens.

Quah Kim Song shared his anecdotes and experiences, particularly on the football pitch, as well as his lively sketches of crucial games, teammates, coaches and competitors, making this a rich memoir of the Kallang Roar era.
