I'm a lifelong Cowboys fan and a collector of football books so I ordered this lesser known title after hearing about it on the Cowboys Radio Network. If you've never listened to the Cowboys radio broadcasts, the author Brad Sham has been broadcasting with them since the 1970's and is a familiar voice for Cowboys faithful. This book is actually pretty small and I would probably only recommend it as a cheaper used book because the little content that it does provide are nice memories but nothing new for Cowboys fans. If you're looking for football strategy this is the wrong book as most of the stories are about past personalities and play by plays. Some of the better chapters include a section about the Zero Club (Blaine Nye, Larry Cole, et al), and a chapter that covers the noteable quarterbacks in Cowboys history and the pressure of playing QB in Dallas. My personal favorite was the chapter about Tex Schramm which is probably the most revealing personality profile in the book because the author had a lot of past experience with him and even interviewed him for the book before he passed away. Landry usually gets the most attention so it was nice to see a segment dedicated to Tex. Overall, it's a fun quick read that any true Cowboys fan will enjoy but if Dallas isn't your team, it's only recommended for hardcore NFL fans.
Only a long-time Cowboys fan can fully appreciate this book and Brad Sham's touch. Left me wishing there were a sequel, given the lean years since the book was published...like whatever happened to the glory years Jerry Jones was going to resurrect through the Big Tuna.
THIS IS A NICE EASY READ BY BRAD SHAM, SPORTCASTER FOR THE COWBOYS. HE COVERS MANY PLAYERS WHO ARE IN THE "RING OF HONOR" AND MANY WHO DESERVE TO BE THERE. I ENJOYED THIS BOOK, JUST WISH IT WAS MORE DETAILED. BUT YET A NICE SLICE OF AMERICA'S TEAM. FOR ALL COWBOY FANS.
