I don't agree a lot with Paterno's spiritual outlook on life. This is, however, one of the best semi-autobiographies I've read. The Penn State football coach of over 45 years outlines his success, the success of his student athletes, and the culture of college football. He transcends most sports-themed biographies by giving a lot of practical advice on how to live a leader's life and why we should all help each other.
The first time I read this book it made a strong impression on me. Parts of the book were just as I remembered them over twenty years ago. If only I had applied more of its lessons over that same time span. Makes me want to re-read The Aeneid.
