Paterno Biography Available for Preorder
The new highly-anticipated Joe Paterno biography, written by SI.com sportswriter Joe Posnanski, is now available for preorder on Amazon.
The book covers Paterno’s entire life, including the scandal surrounding former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Posnanski lived in State College for the last two years of Paterno’s life, constantly talking and learning about Paterno, and was there when the scandal broke. Posnanski was in his hospital room for the final days of his life, and should have more groundbreaking stories to tell.
The book is available on Amazon.com for $18.00, and will be released on August 28, 2012.
Check out an excerpt of the book, written just days after Coach Paterno died.
With the combination of Paterno’s career and Posnanski’s credentials as a writer, this book is sure to be a must read.
