"Boys Will Be Boys" is the rollicking true story of the Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s - a team of immensely talented, wild-partying, out-of-control glory hounds who won three Super Bowls in four years and comprised the most colourful juggernaut in the history of pro football. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of ex-Cowboys and their opponents, award-winning sportswriter Jeff Pearlman presents the complete portrait of a team as renowned for its sex, drugs, and hubris as it was for its championship rings. Molded in the image of their brash new owner, Arkansas oilman Jerry Jones, as well as their charismatic coach, Jimmy Johnson, the Cowboys soon overcame a disastrous 1-15 season in 1989 to dominate the league and reclaim its rightful place as America's Team. This title is presented with a no-holds-barred look at such legendary players as Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Deion Sanders, and many more.

Summary: They were America's Teamthe high-priced, high-glamour, high-flying Dallas Cowboys of the 1990s, who won three Super Bowls and made as many headlines off the field as on it. Led by Emmitt Smith, the charismatic Deion "Prime Time" Sanders, and Hall of Famers Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin, the Cowboys rank among the greatest of all NFL dynasties. In similar fashion to his New York Times bestseller The Bad Guys Won! , about the 1986 New York Mets, in Boys Will Be Boys , award-winning writer Jeff Pearlman chronicles the outrageous antics and dazzling talent of a team fueled by ego, sex, drugsand unrivaled greatness. Rising from the ashes of a 115 season in 1989 to capture three Super Bowl trophies in four years, the Dallas Cowboys were guided by a swashbuckling, skirt-chasing, power-hungry owner, Jerry Jones, and his two eccentric, hard-living coaches, Jimmy Johnson and Barry Switzer. Together the three built a juggernaut that America loved and loathed. But for a team that was so dominant on Sundays, the Cowboys were often a dysfunctional circus the rest of the week. Irvin, nicknamed "The Playmaker," battled dual addictions to drugs and women. Charles Haley, the defensive colossus, presided over the team's infamous "White House," where the parties lasted late into the night and a steady stream of long-legged groupies came and went. And then there were Smith and Sanders, whose Texas-sized egos were eclipsed only by their record-breaking on-field perfomances. With an unforgettable cast of characters and a narrative as hard-hitting and fast-paced as the team itself, Boys Will Be Boys immortalizes the most belovedand despiseddynasty in NFL history.
