What kind of idiot reads a book like this?

The only thing worst than this book is Jerry Sandusky himself.

"Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story" will fit nicely in your bookshelf along such classics as "Knifed: The O.J. Simpson Story," "Fondler: Confessions of a Pedophile," and "Avoiding Blue Dresses: Sexual Harassment for the Aspiring Politician."

100% false advertising by Mr. Sandusky. Not a single page in this book "touches" on how to appropriately gain the trust of young, at-risk boys, and then use that trust to perpetrate horrifying sexual assaults on the very children who turned to you for guidance and support. Almost as disappointing as the first time I watched "Touched by an Angel." Don't even get me started on that bullcrap. I still can't watch anything with Della Reese in it.

Format: Paperback
Look, confession here: I own a copy of this book. It's an okay read if you're into learning about the 3-4 defense and how to beat the Miami Hurricanes and stuff like that, but it lacks the most important detail of all: the child rapes. Why isn't there anything in here about the child rapes? I mean, he has a chapter on how great his dad was; surely the child rapes are just as important as Pappa Art Sandusky's tutelage, perhaps more so if one considers that Sandusky opened a foundation for the express purpose of child raping. So until Jerry revises this book to include more about the child rapes (perhaps he can write an epilogue on toilet paper when he's in the pokey), I'm going to have to withhold that second star.

When it comes to touching, there's nobody I know of that can better call upon 40 years experience of bad touch than one Jerry Sandusky.

Stay hard Jerry.

You sick piece of excrement.

Mr. Sandusky is both a genius and a narcissist, which makes him the perfect predator. At no time was his narcissim more apparent than when he titled his book "Touched". I guarantee this coward will "off" himself, before he ever spends a day with the general prison population. I, for one, would like to see him spend the rest of his life locked up with the general prison population; then, perhaps he can write the sequel entitled "Touched II: Predator Becomes Prey".

Format: Paperback
Prophetic. An instant classic of unfathomnable depths. Tightly packed with behind the scenes moments of intimate collision. A shear monument to literature detailing the powerful, forceful thrusting forward it takes to grab that true goal. This book details all the lost fondles, caressing maneuvers and come from behind cleverness that it takes to reach around the jaws of defeat and come into the annals of greatness.

From the introduction: "More often than not, there is Jerry's version of the story, and then there is what really happened."

...Good to keep in mind if he takes the stand.
