Praise For Friday Night Lights, 25th Anniversary Edition: A Town, a Team, and a Dream

"Groundbreaking."—Austin American-Statesman

"[An] inspiring story about a small town and it's unbelievable football team. Starring unforgettable characters in a setting you'll never want to leave, this is a must-read for true fans."—

"About more than football. Buzz Bissinger's story about the 1988 Permian High School Panthers football team from Odessa, Texas, is a critical look at the impact of high school football on a football-crazed community. It's not but about 365 pages long...but sometimes, even in the fall and winter, you need a brisk read that's not too heavy."—Arkansas Democrat Gazette
