While critics dubbed Posnanski’s book "toxic" before it even hit stands and the New York Times called it "the worst timed book in the history of the world," Posnanski said he wanted to do the best with his access to the Paterno family and with the story he was following.
I have slowly been reading the biography over the last week or so. I am struck by what and honest man Joe was.
"The Freeh report didn’t wait. People wrote and talked on television," Posnanski said. "Nobody waits. None of these people wait. It seems to me that when the question gets asked only to the person who actually talked to Joe Paterno, that it feels like the question is a little bit turned on its side."
