Seán was left unable to walk or talk following the 17-second brutal attack.
His wife Martina says "‘The last two years have been unimaginably difficult but our love for Seán and determination that he gets the best care possible has kept us going. It has been an uphill battle but he is making progress every day."
Martina's book takes readers up to the moment Seán finally returned home after months of rehabilitation in the UK.
It also tells how the tremendous support of community at home and from the extended Liverpool FC supporters helped the Cox family along the way.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has penned a foreword to "With Hope in Your Heart".
The German boss says ‘I often get asked about leadership in football but in “real life” I can think of no greater example of what a leader is than Seán’s wife, Martina. I have followed what she has done for her husband and her family and it has humbled me.’
With Hope in Your Heart" will be published by Gill Books on Friday, 23 October.
