Their Life's Work: The Brotherhood of the 1970s Pittsburgh Steelers, Then and Now

By Gary M Pomerantz
ONE TEAM. FOUR SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONSHIPS. TWELVE HALL OF FAMERS. TWO HUNDRED INTERVIEWS.
They were the best to ever play the game: the Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s. Three decades later their names echo in popular memory--Mean Joe, Bradshaw, Webster, Lambert, Ham, Blount, Franco, Swann, and Stallworth. They define not only the brother-hood and camaraderie of football, but what Americans love about their most popular sport: its artistry and its brutality. From the team's origins in a horseplayer's winnings to the young armored gods who immaculately beat the Raiders in 1972 to the grandfathers with hobbles in their gait, "Their Life's Work" tells the full, intimate story of the Steeler dynasty. But this book does much more than that: it tells football's story. What the game gives, what it takes, and why, to a man, every Steeler, full well knowing the costs, unhesitatingly states, "I'd do it again."
