    Joe Posnanski's biography of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno follows in the tradition of works by Richard Ben Cramer on Joe DiMaggio and David Maraniss on Vince Lombardi. Having gained unprecedented access to Paterno, as well as the coach's personal notes and files, Posnanski spent the last two years of Paterno's life covering the coach, on (and off) the field and through the scandal that ended Paterno's legendary career.

    Story
    Would you listen to Paterno again? Why?

    Yes. There are so many bits of advice ("Paternoisms") I want to write down.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Insight into Joe's relationships with his family and how (for better and worse) he balanced home life with coaching football.


    What does Joe Mantegna bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The imitations and voices.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Adam Taliaferro story.
