INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. -- For all those Boilermakers out there, author John Norberg has the book for you.

Ever True: 150 Years of Giant Leaps at Purdue University by John Norberg captures the essence of Lafayette's great university, from the founding of the university in 1869 with its dedication to agriculture and engineering to the Purdue of today which stands as one of the elite research and education institutes in the world.
