To anyone who reads Cowboy books: I have compiled a list of over 300 books about the Cowboys (of course most are long out of print). If anyone wants a copy, please PM me and include your email address.
UKFan: the Pearlman book was one of the best I've read, and unlike reviews to the contrary (most of which haven't read the book but simply repeat the most salacious stories), it isn't a hack job on the Cowboys. I thought it was a realistic view of things that happened back in the '90s and shows how many of those guys have since redeemed themselves.
But to answer your question: its hard to recommend specific titles w/o knowing more about what you're looking for. If you like to read team histories, you could do worse than "Cowboys Have Always Been My Heroes" by Peter Golenbock (or his recent update, "Landry's Boys").
If you like biographies, there are several about Tom Landry, and a few about Roger Staubach. Many players have written autobiographies: Walt Garrison, Tony Dorsett, Harvey Martin, Bill Bates, Preston Pearson & Drew Pearson. Bob Lilly's bio was released in 2008 and is titled "A Cowboy's Life". I have to admit I was looking for more "inside stuff" but it was good read nonetheless. Emmitt's bio was released while he was still playing, "The Emmitt Zone". As far as I know, Michael Irvin hasn't written a bio, although there is a child's book about him.
Tex Schramm's bio was written by Bob St. John ("Tex!"; the paperback is exactly the same book but renamed "Never Just a Game"). Of course, Jerry has a couple of books already. Many of the OOP titles are available via online used bookstores.
And I know what you mean about buying a book sight unseen. To address that problem, take a look at the reviews on Amazon.com (some of which I've written). Not all the books have customer reviews -- for those, you have to rely on the publisher's blurb, or you can post a specific title here and I'll tell you what I know about it.
If there is something more specific you're looking for, please post here and I will reply.
