From the Publisher:
By America's premier sportswriter, written with full cooperation of Joe Paterno and his family, Paterno is the definitive account of the epic life of America's winningest college football coach. Published to coincide with Penn State football's first season without their legendary leader.

Born in Brooklyn in 1926, Joe Paterno was a first generation college student who became a star quarterback while attending Brown University. After graduation in 1950, at age twenty-three, he was hired by his former coach as assistant coach at Penn State. Over the course of sixty-two football seasons, Joe Paterno's influence was felt as the Nittany Lions won 409 games, a Division I record for a coach. He was honored with every distinction the sports industry has to offer, from being the coach to receive Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year Award, to the Associated Press College Football Coach Award, to the NCAA's Gerald R. Ford Award.

     Joe Posnanski spent the last two years of Paterno's life with him, getting to know the man and his family, and was there as the scandal broke that eventually consumed him. Written with unprecedented access, Paterno gets inside the mind of one of America's most brilliant and charismatic coaches.

Praise

"Joe Posnanski is a terrific writer." - Chris Nashawaty 08/31/2012
