Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
In 1989, oilman Jerry Jones became instantly famous by purchasing the Dallas Cowboys. That same year, he became perhaps the most controversial person in modern Texas history by firing popular two-time Super Bowl winner Tom Landry, at that point the only coach in Cowboys history. Since then, the billionaire owner has continued to ruffle fan feathers with his dismissals and comments. David Magee's Playing to Win uses exclusive interviews with Jones, his friends, players, and enemies to paint a striking portrait of the Dallas mogul and the team he has built and rebuilt. An insider's view of an NFL dynasty.

    Awesome! A great read!

    I read this book as soon as I got it. I learned a lot more about Jerry Jones that I didn't know. It follows his life from the beginning through last year. All the trials and tribulations as a premier NFL team owner of the high profile of America's team. It is a great read for Cowboys fans and football fans alike.
