PSU Book Club

I'm on my second reading of "What It Means to be a Nittany Lion".

 It has a nice forward written by JoePa, then gets right into the players talking about their experiences being recruited by and eventaully playing for PSU.  It starts back in the 30's and 40's and ends up around 2006.  I think what I liked most was the pre-Paterno insight into the building of the football program.  I forgot the administration removed athletic scholarships from around 1930 or so until Rip Engle took over.

After reading this I just can't imagine a non-PSU guy being brought in when Joe is gone.

Has anybody else read this book?  Any other PSU related books that really moved you to read multiple times?
