Default Steelers books

Hey, guys. I was wondering if any of you knew of any good books about the Steelers. Prefer something that can be downloaded on the kindle. I own Dan Rooney's autobio and the one Art Rooney Jr wrote about his father. Thanks in advance. The draft has me excited for another season of football.

Bettis's book was really good, so was James Harrison's. Harrison's was short but it's interesting in how the man ticks today and how his mom's tenacious survival but lovable technique molded him into the badass he is today. His journey from troubled high school kid, to powerful Kent State, to farm league Canada, to NFL wannabe, to the greatest of linebackers in our era was great in my eyes.

Also, Merril Hoge's inspirational book, "Find A Way" is said to be tops. It's on my pull list.

terry bradshaws books are a very fun read with some cool stories and insight on his career, including both ups and downs.

especially if he was your favorite all time qb and youve seen his talk show, heard his albums, watch nfl on fox, and own "failure to launch".

I read both of Bradshaw's books, as well as Bettis's; both were pretty good reads even though I found the Bus (and I love him) to be a little too full of himself at times. Bradshaw's first book (forget what it's called) was absolutely hilarious.

I can't believe no one's suggested this one yet: About Three Bricks Shy of a Load and the Load Filled Up by Roy Blount. I read it a while ago so I can't remember which season but its an inside look into one of our 70's teams, filled with interesting little vignettes on those legendary squads. Highly recommended.
