Synopsis: This inspiring autobiography reveals an inside look at one of the most recognizable figures in professional sports. From his all-American boyhood in Mission, Texas, through his career as the stoic coach of the Dallas Cowboys to his final coaching hours, here is Landry's personal account of his philosophy, values, and above all--his faith. Photographs.

From Library Journal: The publication of these books coincides with Landry's induction into the National Football League Hall of Fame this month. Bayless, a Dallas columnist and sportswriter who has covered the Dallas Cowboys since 1978, looks behind the publicity and Image (with a capital I) of "America's Team." Although Bayless stresses that Landry is a good person, the book is uncomplimentary toward Landry's coaching ability and the Dallas front office. Bayless's anecdotes and interviews reveal the lack of substance behind the Landry and Cowboy image. Though the author's often too-cute word play sometimes gets in the way of his narrative, overall the book gives an interesting outsider's perspective on Landry's reign in Dallas. In stark contrast to Bayless's account, Landry's autobiography perpetuates the image that has earned him the respect of so many people. From his early days in Dallas to life after his controversial firing, Landry addresses many of the same incidents Bayless discusses, but their perspectives and explanations differ significantly. Don't expect any surprising revelations. Although the Christian influence on Landry and his "aww shucks" naivete seem overemphasized, Landry shows his skill as a motivating speaker and his genuinely "nice guy" personality. The book will serve more as a motivating tool or speaker's sourcebook than it does as a behind-the-scenes view of Landry and his Cowboys. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/90. -- Martin J. Hudacs, Towanda H.S., Pa.
