The never-before-told story of the Buss family and of one woman's rise to the top in a man's world, Laker Girl is an unprecedented glimpse into the glamorous world of the Los Angeles Lakers. It is also a behind-the-scenes journal of the 2009–10 Lakers season, a year in which the franchise captured its 16th world championship. 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. Along the way, she's rubbed elbows with everyone from 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. In this updated edition, Buss discusses her recent engagement to Phil Jackson and looks back on the Lakers' eventful past three seasons—an era that has included multiple coaching changes, changes in the front office, a new TV deal, and much more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I didn't know what to expect with this book... I have been a Laker fan all of my life (starting with Magic and the Showtime era), but generally "sports" books put me to sleep. Despite that, I thought I would give "Laker Girl" a try. And I am glad I did. I loved it! Jeanie is candid; sharing both happy and sad memories - some (many) of which are Laker related, and others that are more personal. The chapters alternate between older memories and a current season which keeps the reader entertained and engaged, and is never confusing. I would highly recommend this book not only to Laker fans, but for anyone looking for an honestly enjoyable read about a girl who's father has worked his way up from nothing to being the owner of one of the most successful sports organizations of all time. And how that same girl, while given a privileged position in her father's organization at a young age has worked hard to become the best she can be, thereby solidifying her father's initial decision.
