Author Mark Ribowsky (Howard Cosell; Don't Look Back) specializes in sports stories and often sees what others have missed. In this case, his subject is Tom Landry, the legendary Dallas Cowboys coach who has been dead for nearly a decade and a half. With added perspective (not to mention dozens of exclusive interviews), Ribowsky offers us our best opportunity yet to see this quiet, complex man as he really was. He shows how as a young man, Landry followed his fallen World War II hero brother into battle, somehow surviving a crash landing himself. He tracks his subject's forty-year football career, focusing on the triumphs of his twenty consecutive winning seasons and his two championships. Perhaps most memorably, he describes how Landry's coaching method forever transformed the game of football.
