Laker Girl: From Pickfair to Playboy to the Prule and Gold
The life story of Jeanie Buss could only have been written in Hollywood. Her father, Jerry Buss, emerged from a childhood of financial struggle to become one of California's most successful real estate developers. Though her life was not without turmoil (her parents divorced when she was a child), Jeanie's world was forever changed when her father bought the Los Angeles Lakers in 1979. By age 19, she was already a high-ranking executive with World Team Tennis. Today, she is the Lakers' executive vice president of business operations and one of the most influential women in professional sports. But Jeanie's business accomplishments only begin to tell the tale. In true Hollywood fashion, Jeanie found love where she least expected: with Lakers' head coach Phil Jackson. She's rubbed elbows with everyone from Magic Johnson to Jack Nicholson, and she's done it all in her own inimitable style.--From publisher description.
