Point of Attack: The Defense Strikes Back

Harry Carson, Author McGraw-Hill Companies $16.95 (175p) ISBN 978-0-07-010227-9
The N.Y. Giants, once the dominant force in the pro gridiron sport, have had little to cheer about for 20 years. So it is perhaps not surprising that there should be a book about the 1985 season, when the team won more games than it lost and even made the playoffs. In this account of that year, inside linebacker and defensive captain Carson and Newsday reporter Smith cover each of the 18 games in that not-so-memorable campaign, and the result is a less than memorable book. Carson is a forthright man and an exceptional playeran inspiration to his teammates. But neither his life story nor his career in 1985 proves rousing. Still, Giant fans, a long-frustrated breed, can be expected to delight in the book. Photos not seen by PW. 50,000 first printing; $50,000 ad/promo; first serial to Newsday. (November 24)
