Posnanski Says He Is "Very Proud" Of Paterno Bio, Discusses Reasons For Earlier Release

RANKED NO. 1 IN THE POLLS: ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell noted the book “will debut at No. 1 on the New York Times' hardcover non-fiction best-seller list this week.” The book beat out "Obama's America" by Dinesh D'Souza "for the top spot." However, leading the list “doesn't mean that Simon & Schuster has recouped its investment from the book,” even though that “might not be as much as people imagined” (ESPN.com, 8/29). In Ft. Worth, Mac Engel reviewed the book and wrote under the header, “‘Paterno’ Should Have Been Shelved For 3 To 5 Years.” Posnanski’s “work and original interviews about the man are not worthless, but it is all too soon for a proper context of this man's life” (STAR-TELEGRAM.com, 8/29).
