About the Author

"It's tempting to call Boys Will Be Boys the real-life sequel to North Dallas Forty. But in fact, it's more than that. With immaculate reporting, Jeff Pearlman has constructed a marvelous rise and fall narrative. Here's the truth about America's team delivered in a profane page-turner--entertaining, enlightening, and where you least expect it, inspiring. Put another way: This book rocks." -- Mark Kriegel, New York Times bestselling author of Pistol and Namath

"The Cowboys of the 1990s had everything: great players, great characters, great parties, great hair. Now, finally, they have the great writer to tell their story. Jeff Pearlman has written a rip-roaring book filled with terrific reporting and vibrant prose. To appreciate football's modern era in all its crazy glory, you've got to read Boys Will Be Boys. It's a flat-out winner." -- Jonathan Eig, New York Times bestselling author of Opening Day and Luckiest Man

"Jeff Pearlman is an insider's insider. With vivid details that place you in the Dallas huddle - and in the team hotel rooms - Pearlman expertly peels the hedonistic layers off the unforgettable characters of the dynastic Cowboys, taking you on a raucous and reflective joyride behind the color, chaos and karma of America's team in the '90s." -- Selena Roberts, columnist, Sports Illustrated

"Just when I thought I knew all the inside info from the glory days of the '90s, along comes Jeff Pearlman with this look back. A truly great read." -- Randy Galloway, columnist, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"A gritty, no-holds barred portrait." -- Barry Horn, The Dallas Morning News

"Jeff Pearlman does a masterly job of exposing the '90s Cowboys as shameless frauds and adulterers, sex addicts, and drug fiends." -- John Gonzalez, The Philadelphia Inquirer
