I am reading "Steeler Nation" right now, got it for Christmas from my husband.... it is the most recent one, and from what I have read, it has a lot of stories about CURRENT steelers.

I read "Double Yoi" by Myron Cope a couple years back & the book by Terry Bradshaw, that was pretty good.. I also started to read Jerome Bettis' book, but just wasn't getting into it much.

Bradshaw's book is awesome :thumbsup:

I haven't read it yet but I hear very positive reviews on Dan Rooney's book

Top 50 Plays of Steeler history is great for when you are taking a dump or just looking to kill time. it's fun.

The ultimate one is 'A Few Bricks Shy Of A Load" by Blount (not Mel, and no relation). It's the chronicle of a SI writer given the assignment of living with a team for the entire season, pre through post. His editor gave him the choice of the Steelers or Raiders. He chose the Steelers. Takes place in '75 I think. Great read, but a little rough for the kiddies!!

Appreciate all the replies, thank you.

Will be a tough choice selecting one or two to purchase!

There is a book about Jack Lambert by a guy that I had as a substitute teacher. It is entitled Jack Lambert: Tough as Steel by Ron "Tank" Rotunno. I havent read it yet but it should be good, he seemed pretty knowledgeable on the Steelers when he and I talked in class just a couple years ago. It is also only $10 on borders.com.

Has anyone read the book titled something like "Steeler Nation" there may have been more. I was wondering if its a good book before I picked it up.

I haven't read it yet but I want to, there were excerpts from it in Steelers digest last year and it looks pretty good.

I would recommend Jim O'Brien's "Doing It Right" (1991) and "Whatever It Takes" (1992), two wonderfully-written books which bridge the gap between the pre-Noll and Noll eras.
