The book I Read it called Bo. The book is about Bo Schembechler. He was born and raised in Barberton, Ohio a suburb of Akron. His nickname "Bo" came from his sister's attempts to say "brother" when they were young children. Bo’s dad was a fire fighter. His father had a huge impact on his life. His dad was offered a stolen copy of a civil-service exam but he refused to take the stolen exam. His father told the test and failed, he missed one more question than what he needed to pass. This taught Bo a lesson that he always carried as a person and a coach. Schembechler often told the story, saying the experience taught him more about integrity than any lecture ever could have. Integrity and hard work were two themes of Bo's career.

Schembechler attended Miami University located in Oxford, Ohio. Bo was a member of Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity. He played football for two great coaches. They were Sid Gillman and Woody Hayes. Sid Gillman, his first coach at Miami, he was offensive minded. Gillman left to become head coach at the University of Cincinnati. His new head coach was Woody Hayes.
