    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Paterno the most enjoyable?

    The way he approached coaching and developing young people into adults.


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

    How Mr. Paterno did not follow his own teachings. It appears his dislike towards Sandusky clouded his understanding of the severity regarding the terrible acts.
