Amazon Rating 4.7/5 Stars


"Jay Paterno has issued a loud, compelling, forceful clarion call to
clear his father's name. With lucid prose and a storyteller's touch,
Jay has blown aside the unwarranted clouds that socked in the end of Joe Paterno's life and reminded us of what JoePa accomplished and represented over a lifetime as a coach, a father and a father figure to untold Penn State football players. Jay takes us inside the life of a public icon, giving us the vantage point that only a son and a colleague can have. College football fans and anyone who still believes in the quintessential American success story will be all the richer for Paterno Legacy."--Ivan Maisel--ESPN


"Jay Paterno's project is the defining work on his father, every bit the same as a Doris Kearns Goodwin biography on an American president."---Don Laible--Utica Observer-Disptach


"Many life lessons... you don't have to like football, Penn State or Joe Paterno. Read it if you want to know how to be a better person and/or parent."--Virginia


"This is a sharp, in-depth, inside look at a son's love for his iconic father."--Dennis Dodd--CBS Sports


"Jay puts holes in that (Freeh) report big enough for Franco Harris to run through."--Stan Hochman--The Philadelphia Daily News


"The just isn't for Penn Staters, JoePa fans, or sports freaks. It teaches about life, family, integrity and commitment. EVERYONE can learn something from this book." --Matthew


"If you read this book with an open heart, you won't be able to look at that scandal or Joe Paterno in the same way again."--Joe Posnanski--NBC Sports


"This book, which I believe can be enjoyed by both football fans and non-football fans alike, is well written, fast moving, and clearly gives insights into the man Joe Paterno was." --Robert


"This is a book that once you begin reading you do not want to put it down as well as the book to never end told from the heart as only a son could accomplish and told from within the inner circle as only a son and member of the staff could. Parts of this book will bring tears to your eyes whether you are a Penn State football fan or not. A tremendous, well written book.."--Amazon Reviewer


"It is absolutely excellent. I can't ever remember a book having such an emotional effect on me. There were times when I laughed at "Joe being Joe", times when it was overwhelmingly sad, and a time when at 3 o'clock in the morning I had to put the book down because I was literally trembling with rage at the injustice of it all"--E-mail from a reader
