Synopsis :

Total Impact

From Kirkus Reviews:

Revealing autobiography of football defensive-back Ronnie Lott, written with Sports Illustrated staffer Lieber. Lott is king of defense for the San Francisco 49ers--ranging behind the line, breaking up pass plays, playing ``good old fashioned smash-mouth football''--and an incredible asset for coach Bill Walsh, though Lott never feels close to him. Lott studies San- Tzu on the art of war and envies Mike Tyson (``The violence turns me on...if you're a true professional you should be able to bring forth the rage no matter what is at stake''). Here is the Lott tackle: ``I visualize a spot on the other side...and run full speed straight through...my knees fly into a receiver's helmet...hands whip into his facemask.'' He rejoices in helmet-first ``runaway freight train massacres where I [plow] through some sucker who didn't see me coming.'' Teammates in the way are smashed aside. When Lott runs amok and a teammate calms him, he turns on him. Where does the rage come from? That's never quite explored here, but Lott pays a high price for his playing style. Despite a remarkable and well-described training regimen directed by a karate instructor, the toll is awesome, with Lott a connoisseur of pain. He experiences repeated and serious concussions, his hamstrings are ``nubby, knotted, full of divots,'' and his knees will never be the same. A pair of sophisticated physical therapists tend him via massage, liniments, ice, amino acids, herbal casts, and electrical muscle stimulation; he also uses acupuncture, Scientology, and the advice of a little old Chinese man he met in San Francisco herb shop. One of the frankest books yet about the realities of pro sports under the influence of major money, TV, steroids, and painkillers. (Twenty-five b&w photographs--not seen.) -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

Description de la librairie

Located in the heart of historic downtown Springfield, Prairie Archives has been serving Central Illinois since 1973. We have occupied three locations since our founding and our current store has been located at 522 E. Adams since 1992. We have approximately 250,000 books in stock, documents, manuscript material, posters, prints, comics, collectibles, magazines, political buttons, postcards and lots more! If you don't see a title you're looking for, please feel free to inquire; only a small part of our stock is catalogued. Our store hours are 10-5 Central time Monday through Saturday. We also carry a line of t-shirts, including the ever-popular "Abraham Lincoln: They'd have to shoot me to get me back to Springfield" and "Frank Lloyd Wright: I can design a building that would look good even in Springfield". Please inquire about our other designs, sizes and prices. And of course, we can't leave without mentioning Hannah, our golden retriever. She has run things here since she was a puppy [October, 1994]; she brings more business to the shop than anyone else. Always friendly, cheerful, and affectionate (especially when someone has food!) She has recently been joined by Ruby, a young and energetic black lab. Hannah and Ruby say "Come See Us!"
