How does it feel to see your name among the Cowboys greats in Texas Stadium’s Ring of Honor? What was it like to be recruited by professional scouts? What happened to the guy who hooked Randy White in the back with a wayward fishhook? How did legendary coach Tom Landry motivate his players? How did a waterbed and transcendental meditation help Cliff Harris gain an edge over his opponents?

Replete with memories from his college days at Ouachita Baptist and then as a member of the Dallas Cowboys during the “America’s Team” era, Cliff answers those questions and more in the updated edition of Captain Crash and the Dallas Cowboys. Read about his teammates, his coach, his enemies, training secrets, Super Bowls—of which Cliff played in five, winning two—Pro Bowls, motorcycles, and motorboats.

In this book, first published in 2006 and now including a new introduction, Cliff takes us on the wild ride that was his life as a Cowboy free safety and how he got there in the first place. The book also includes great insider stories written by famous fellow players Walt Garrison, Roger Staubach, Lee Roy Jordan, and Charlie Waters. Perfect for the shelf of any Dallas Cowboys fan!

Legends of the Buffalo Bills, first published in 2003, is not only a story about a National Football League team. It is also the story of the city it occupies and its fans. Original members of “The Foolish Club,” a group of owners who bought into the idea of forming the American Football League to go up against the mighty NFL in 1960, the Bills have had their fair share of losing seasons, but they’ve also been winners. During the team’s ten years in the now defunct AFL, Buffalo captured three Eastern Division titles, along with two AFL championships. Meanwhile the team strung together an unprecedented four straight Super Bowl appearances from 1990–93.
There have been many memorable moments and characters along the way as well who are documented in this book. Legendary running back Cookie Gilchrist and quarterback Jack Kemp led the Bills to their first glory years, including back-to-back AFL titles in 1964-65. And who could forget O.J. Simpson, who set a new individual rushing title with 2,003 yards in 1973? Or the Bills’ victory over the Dolphins on September 7, 1980 that ended the team’s twenty-game losing streak to Miami?

However, the surge of information that is meant to help human decision making is harming it. Dub Maddox continues the journey from Headset to Helmet and Adapt or Die. In What is Open? he shows coaches and players simple game planning and play calling process that accelerates answers in finding “open.”
