An arresting, assaultive appraisal of Tom Landry, which damns with faint praise the stone-faced coach who, having helped to make the Dallas Cowboys one of the NFL's premier teams, stayed too long at the fair. With no pretense of objectivity, the author (who has covered the Cowboys for over a decade as a sports columnist) furnishes a revisionist version probing the darker realities behind the club's vaunted image. With his well-developed sense of irony, Bayless considers Landry's awkwardly handled and very public firing by Jerry Jones (who bought the Cowboys early in 1989) a fine career move.

The book is interesting and no doubt brings to light many of the negative "behind the scenes" issues within the organization. That being said, the writer seems to pursue a theme that becomes more of an agenda to discredit the entire coaching career of Tom Landry. No doubt the man (like all of us) had his imperfections and the team lacked success on the field in his final years, but you can't give him all the blame when it was bad and none of the credit when it was very, very good. The reality is the guy won a lot of games and 2 Super Bowls in his 29 years. To portray him as mediocre because he wasn't perfect is more agenda than objective reality. There is a constant theme that he was a hypocrite because he was a Christian and yet wasn't perfect? That's absurd. Being a Christian doesn't mean you are perfect. The writer seems to have more issue with Landry's "old school" style than anything. Was he a player's coach? No. Does that mean he was mediocre? No. The guy's record speaks for itself. Despite the author's agenda, there is no argument concerning Tom Landry as a Legitimate Hall of Fame Coach.

Read all of the reviews here, especially Scot_from_dallas, who nails it: Bayless has been a definitive, dogged, religiously fanatical hater of Tom Landry from the moment he began writing hatchet stories on the Cowboys. Eventually Bayless was forced out of Dallas ( and for good measure ). This book is so reprehensible and farcical that the reviews here only do it justice. I tossed my copy in the garbage after I read it. The last resort for a scoundrel: ESPN.

I am a fan of Landry, but I realized that there is always good and bad associated with even the most heroic figures. However I never really made it past the first couple of chapters. The book is poorly written and just feels thrown together with random quotes thrown in the middle of sentences and paragraphs. It just isn't a pleasant read at all. As far as I made it he never really said things that make Landry out to be this horrible person that he claims he is. Having several players not like you during a coaching career several decades is to be expected. I ended up putting this book down and began reading the much more enjoyable The Last Cowboy: A Life of Tom Landry. A much better written and enjoyable read. It is mostly positive but he does not shy away from some criticisms of Landry either. A much more balanced read.

This author is a windbag, but he sure can write. Amazing stories about Tom Landry, Tex Schramm and the Cowboys franchise. Just a terrific book.

Skip's a better writter than talker on t.v....good book, I wish an update was included to reflect that the JJ'S won 2 super bowls but I get, I mean it is called God's Coach not the "fall and resurgence of the Cowboys". I grew up in NJ with a family of Giants fans, Landry was very respected to this day my dad does not like Jerry Jones because he fired Tom.

I loved this book because it made Tom Landry into a three-dimensional human being instead of a walking monument. There is no question he was a great coach but he had his flaws and I prefer to see people as human beings, not cardboard cutouts.

But I also want to make this clear that I am praising this book, not Skip Bayless. Seeing him on First Take these days is really pathetic because you can tell he's just taking the other side to be controversial to get attention for himself. He could have been a great author but instead he turned into an attention junkie!
