Summary:

"An eloquent, honest tribute to a sports genius." -Publishers Weekly, Best 100 Books of 2013 Movie rights optioned by NFL Films

As the coach during professional football's most storied era, Tom Landry transformed the gridiron from a no-holds-barred battlefield to the highly-technical chess match it is today. With his trademark fedora and stoic facade, he was a man of faith and few words, for twenty-nine years guiding "America's Team" from laughingstock to well-oiled machine, with an unprecedented twenty consecutive winning seasons and two Super Bowl titles. Now, more than a decade after Landry's death, acclaimed biographer Mark Ribowsky takes a fresh look at this misunderstood legend, telling us as much about our country's obsession with football as about Landry himself, the likes of whom we'll never see again.

    I will never read another book by Ribowski! He doesn’t seem to have the capacity to finish a chapter wout spewing his leftist political views. Time after time he forgets that he is writing a book on a sports figure and lectures the reader about how horrible all things southern are. He starts by telling the reader he is a liberal New York Jew and could care less what anyone thinks from that point on. I just wanted to hear Landry’s story but I heard about how horribl Texas and Dallas is , how of course Kennedy was killed here in the land of hate. I could go on and on about this holier than thou a**hole, like there aren’t a million racist in the north. It’s just a horrible read!!!!!
