Memories of a Football Maverick. By Tony Dorsett and Harvey Frommer. In fact, there are so many laments against the Cowboys and humanity in general in ''Running Tough'' that the book could have been subtitled ''Feel Sorry for Me, Because I Sure D. ' No doubt racism, mendacity and other horrors exist in the National football League and on the Cowboys, but Mr. Dorsett sees it as all directed at him. His career has been dotted by accusations of starting fights in bars and other public places, rumors of a drug investigation and severe financial problems despite a seven-figure contract.

I learned what I wanted about Tony Dorsett. He was one of my favorite running backs. I didn't know much about his life and his book put things in prospective. However, there were things I felt he should have elaborate on, for instance, how he met his life and his girlfriend in college. He repeated himself a lot but not with the same words, but with different words saying the same thing over and over.

Overall, if you are a Tony Dorsett fan, you have to get this book. Just learning about all of his awards is good enough! It's exciting!

TONY DORSETT WAS GREAT RUNNING BACK FOR THE COWBOYS AND A DECENT ONE FOR THE BRONCOS. HIS STORY IS BOTH WELL WRITTEN AND QUITE INTERESTING. TONY IS AN HONEST AND OUTSPOKEN MAN AND IT HAS GOTTEN HIM IN TROUBLE OVER THE YEARS. I REALLY ENJOYED HIS INSIGHT AND OPINIONS ABOUT TOM LANDRY AND THE MANAGEMENT OF THE COWBOYS BOTH ON AND OFF THE FIELD. EVEN THOUGH LANDRY WAS A CHRISTIAN HE STILL HAD A BIG EGO AND COULD BE COLD AS ICE AND MAKE THINGS NASTY FOR SOME PEOPLE HE DIDN'T LIKE. AND LET US NOT FORGET THAT THE COWBOY HIERARCHY WAS FULL OF SUCCESS, THEMSELVES AND A FEW OTHER THINGS. TONY ADMITS HE WAS ALSO THE MAKER OF SOME OF HIS PROBLEMS. THE OTHER PARTS OF THE BOOK I LIKED WERE ABOUT DAN REEVES, STAUBACH AND THE TALES OF A YOUNG TONY AND HIS MANY BROTHERS AND SISTERS. A MUST READ FOR ALL COWBOY, UNIV OF PITTSBURGH AND BRONCO FANS.

This autobiography provides detail on the youth and playing career of Tony Dorsett. We read stories of how he escaped his background to achieve success in high school football. A great deal of detail is included regarding the Pitt program and Tony's success there. Tony provides a sort-of justification for the change of pronunciation of his name as he entered the pros.

He describes each season of his pro career, including the effect on his personal and financial life. While he describes his financial problems, it would be more helpful to younger players to focus on this aspect of his life, what he learned from those problems and how he could have avoided them. This problem is far too common to remain unaddressed.

This book was written just before he retired. He still harbored some bitterness toward the Cowboys organization regarding the way his time in Dallas ended. He discusses the Herschel Walker situation and his playing time in Denver. Had he written this book years later, he might have been better able to provide better perspective. I usually prefer contemporaneous accounts of particular seasons, but sometimes, the benefit of hindsight helps.

I did not give the book higher marks for two reasons.

(1) Some of the book seemed repetitive. It became apparent that the book suffered from the same problems as do many athlete books. The real writer is his coauthor. It was evident that Tony was simply being interviewed and quoted at length. The stories bear indicia of being spoken in kind of a rambling, repetitive style. The organization suffers as a result.

(2) Some of the anecdotes are interpreted as racial incidents. I do not know what really happened in these incidents or why, but similar incidents are treated differently in the books of his teammates (Drew Pearson, Harvey Martin, Thomas Henderson).

For Cowboy fans, this book is average among Cowboy history books.

I remember hearing that Dallas had traded up to draft Tony Dorsett. I was 17 and from the second that happened it pretty much put Dallas in the Super Bowl. From the beginning I dont think he was quite ever completely understood in Dallas. And for the first three years he played Roger Staubach was the center piece of the Cowboys offense. He always wanted to carry the ball more. And there were games when he only carried 12 times or so. This is a good biography. He was one of my favorite players.
