The book is somewhat unusual among sports biographies in that it focuses on an assistant coach, and in its focus on Sandusky's work with his charity. It garnered renewed attention after Sandusky was charged with several counts of child sexual abuse.

Touched is the story of Jerry Sandusky's life in his own words  . Sandusky's behavior throughout the charges and counter-charges remained baffling. this book gets the award for the most ironic title of the decade. I haven't read this book nor will I since supporting Sandusky would be the furthest thing from my mind.

His co-writer was Keith Kip Richeal. repeated descriptions of Sandusky hugging boys and talking about being very close to boys. I enjoyed pretending as a kid, and I love doing the same as an adult with these kids. Other books by Sandusky include: Developing linebackers the Penn State way, Leisure Press, 1981.

The book was co-written by Sandusky and Kip Richeal, a former Penn State journalism student who has been disabled for his entire life with hip dysplasia. Sandusky and Richeal met when Richeal was an equipment manager for the Penn State football team in the early 1980s.

Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story" published 11 years before child abuse charges against ex-PSU football coach. In the introduction of the book, Richeal, who was born with hip dysplasia and is disabled, describes an "odd" question posed by Sandusky when they first met: My first real contact with Jerry Sandusky came from a rather odd question he posed to me: "How much do you weigh, young man?" I was puzzled, because I knew he wasn't interested in me as a linebacker, but I told him I weighed about 95 pounds. I did and the locker room scale topped out at 96.

Co-author Kip Richeal says he never saw Sandusky do anything inappropriate with young boys. From his childhood to his professional career, this book goes behind the scenes to explore the successes and challenges that Jerry Sandusky has faced in life, both on and off the football field. After graduating from Penn State in 1966, Sandusky went on to coach collegiate football for 34 years.

The word irony has been waiting around for hundreds of years to be applied to something as appropriately as it applies to this book! A MUST-HAVE for any crime junkies library! "Touched" written by a pedophile before the bust? Come on y'all, don't get no better than that!
Lahorns Gods
Not very well written or researched. Good stories though. Good Penn State history in here. Who knew the man that Jerry really was though. Hard to read at times.
Flocton
Fascinating book!! Too bad the real story took a different turn.

"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."

Perverts that prey on children are nothing but evil, self serving demons. He used his position to have access to children.

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.
Is everyone aware of the scrapbook found that Sandusky kept showing his obsession with one youngster? He wasn't interested merely in the sex act alone, at least with a number of these kids.

This is a deeply disturbed man; I think most psychologists would say that he probably is repeating what happened to him as a child. He has even mixed an aspect of pain in his mind with an 'act of love": to perform sodomy on a child has to hurt that child- a lot. There is certainly the danger of a rupture as well.

Certainly it makes sense to feel that if he, indeed, had experienced this himself, he would never ever do the same thing to a child when he was grown, but the human mind can play strange tricks.

I don't think he has allowed himself to realize the horrific amount of harm he has caused. Likely his own confusion as a child if this happened to him by someone he trusted and even loved (even possibly a priest) as I suggested has merged this aberration with demonstrations of love in his mind. It's possible that he can't reconcile someone who professed affection for him could want to harm him.

In any instance, this is a man who should be removed from society to protect other children- I don't think he'd ever be capable of stopping this. Look what happened after he was caught and his locker room keys were taken from him- and other times it seems this happened, such as the janitor's discovering him- he still continued.

I saw something the other day, that could be just a rumor, but this sure doesn't seem likely it would come out of nowhere; again, nothing solid presented here, but it has been said that he also procured some of these boys for some of the rich donors to the Second Mile. If this is true...
