How 'Bout Them Cowboys by Gary Myers:
Welcome to Jerryworld and an all-access pass to the most valuable sports franchise on the planet, the Dallas Cowboys.
Many books have been written about the Cowboys, but there's never been an account like this one. HOW 'BOUT THEM COWBOYS tells the story of the NFL's most successful franchise, with special access to its outspoken owner, Jerry Jones, his sons Stephen and Jerry Jr., daughter Charlotte, and dozens of interviews of current and former players and coaches, and characters from across Cowboy Nation. While tracking the successes and controversies of some of the biggest names in the NFL on and off the field, HOW 'BOUT THEM COWBOYS? remembers the legends of previous generations, and explains why the star on the helmet has become iconic, and how a little expansion team from North Texas has evolved into a global $5 billion brand.
Primed for their make-or-break 2018 season, HOW 'BOUT THEM COWBOYS? delivers a fun and surprising account of America's Team, its greatest celebrities, its mercurial management, the vicious rivalries, and the enduring saga that makes this the most popular and polarizing team in sports.
About Gary Myers:
Gary Myers is the author of five books, including the NY Times bestseller "Brady vs. Manning." His latest book, "How 'Bout Them Cowboys?" is a behind the scenes look at America's Team, with extensive and exclusive interviews with Jerry Jones, his family and many of the stars who have played for the most popular and valuable team in the world. Myers is a former columnist for the Dallas Morning News and New York Daily News and currently is a contributor to The Athletic and hosts a show on WFAN on Saturday
City of Champions by Hank Gola:
On Christmas night, 1939, two vastly different teams from Garfield, New Jersey and Miami, Florida collided in the historic Orange Bowl to decide the National Sports Foundation’s national championship.
In City of Champions: An American story of leather helmets, iron wills and the high school kids from Jersey who won it all, Hank Gola, a veteran and award-winning football writer, unveils the grit (and wild strokes of luck and fortune) that led up to a Garfield victory, stunning the football world. The landmark 1939 season also mirrors a portrait of interwar America amid the looming clouds of WWII.

Guts and Genius by Bob Glauber:
How three football legends -- Bill Walsh, Joe Gibbs, and Bill Parcells -- won eight Super Bowls during the 1980s and changed football forever.
Bill Walsh, Joe Gibbs and Bill Parcells dominated what may go down as the greatest decade in pro football history, leading their teams to a combined eight championships and developing some of the most gifted players of all time in the process.
Walsh, Gibbs and Parcells developed such NFL stars as Joe Montana, Lawrence Taylor, Jerry Rice, Art Monk and Darrell Green. They resurrected the careers of players like John Riggins, Joe Theismann, Doug Williams, Everson Walls and Hacksaw Reynolds. They did so with a combination of guts and genius, built championship teams in their own likeness, and revolutionized pro football like few others. Their influence is still evident in today's game, with coaches who either worked directly for them or are part of their coaching trees now winning Super Bowls and using strategy the three men devised and perfected.
In interviews with more than 150 players, coaches, family members and friends, GUTS AND GENIUS digs into the careers of three men who overcame their own insecurities and doubts to build Hall of Fame legacies that transformed their generation and continue to impact today's NFL.
