Jerry Jones
Buck Buchanan is one of the most loyal, valuable and cherished personalities that the Dallas Cowboys franchise has ever produced. There is no better source for Cowboys lore and unique anecdotes than this wise and dedicated professional who served this organization with pride for 25 years. You will enjoy the stories he has to tell from behind the scenes and on the front lines of NFL history. Buck has seen it all, and his reflections in this book are an accurate and honest peek into the life of a Cowboys legend.
As the hardworking equipment manager of the Dallas Cowboys, Tom "Buck" Buchanan hauled gear for 25 seasons, a period that included four Super Bowl victories. Now happily retired, Buck shares his favorite stories about his job and the Cowboys players and coaches. Crunching good fun.

I started reading this book because my boyfriend is a big Dallas Cowboys fan, but finished it because I really enjoyed it. I highly recommend it for the Ladies as well as the obviously targeted Male population.
