    August 29, 1994
    Smith, the Dallas Cowboy running back who has won the NFL rushing title for the past three years and was named most valuable player in both the league and the Super Bowl, is a spectacular player. In this chatty if lackluster autobiography, written with Steve Delsohn (Out of Bounds), we learn the superstar grew up in a supportive lower-middle-class family but made a bad choice in attending the University of Florida, whose football program was in chaos for the three years he played there. When he left he was chosen by the Cowboys. There followed wrangling over his subsequent contracts with owner Jerry Jones, who is depicted as tight-fisted. Under coach Jimmy Johnson, Smith had a major role in lifting a 1-15 team to two Super Bowl wins. Photos. Author tour.

    YA-The Dallas rusher tells of his childhood, family, and football career in a book that's chock-full of old-fashioned values. There's no hot gridiron gossip here, but Smith does lend insight into some of his coaches and teammates. He seems always conscious of his role-model status, but tells his stories in a relaxed, informal way. Order several copies-this book is going to be passed around and around, even among the most reluctant readers.-Linda Diane Townsend, West Potomac High School, Fairfax County, VA
