Total Impact

Ronnie Lott, Author, Jill Lieber, With Doubleday Books $19.5 (305p) ISBN 978-0-385-42055-6
Lott played with the San Francisco 49ers throughout the '80s, placing him on four Super Bowl championship teams. He was also chosen to play in the Pro Bowl nine times in 10 years, testimony to his excellence as a defensive back. Yet, his successes notwithstanding, readers may question whether this ponderous tome, coauthored with Sports Illustrated senior writer Lieber, may not be overkill. While fans will enjoy the book's game-by-game analysis of the 1990 season, in which the 49ers failed to reach their third straight Super Bowl, even the most fervent Lott admirers will little care that in his karate lessons he does 1000 kicks or consider it a revelation that he likes to hit opposing players hard, a point made at least a half-dozen times.
