Product Description & Reviews
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 improbably become one of California's most successful real estate developers. Though her life was not without turmoil - l her parents divorced when she was still a child - Jeanie's world was forever changed for the better when her father bought the Los Angeles Lakers in 1979.
By the time Jeanie was 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 of her incredible journey. In true Hollywood fashion, Jeanie eventually found love where she least expected: with Phil Jackson, the Lakers head coach and one of the most successful coaches in NBA history. Along the way, she's rubbed elbows with everyone from Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, John McEnroe, and Shaquille O Neal to Ryan Seacrest, Khloe Kardashian, Hugh Hefner, and Jack Nicholson. And she's done it all in her own unique, inimitable style.
Laker Girl is the never-before-told story of the Buss family, and of one woman's rise to the top in a man's world.
