1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A Hollywood screenwriter decides to move from Los Angeles back to his hometown, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and rediscovers himself. He documents "the city's recent resurgence," that caused it to be named the most livable U.S. city in 2007, but voices concern about population migration and the city's future. With the theme of Pittsburgh as the friendly neighborhood portrayed by Fred Rogers, Korlander shares reflective and humorous moments with his wife, brother, and a few of "Pittsburgh's favorite neighbors: Paul O'Neill, Teresa Heinz Kerry, Bill Strickland, Bob O'Connor, Sister Linda Yankonski, Louie Anderson, Franco Harris, Joanne Rogers, David Newell [Mr. McFeely], Dr. Thomas Starzl, Dr. Cyril Wecht. ... It's never too late to come back!"-- Container

Beyond the goalpost by Andy Russell ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Andy has been attracted to athletic challenge, adventure and possibly even danger. In this book Andy tries to understand what it was that drove him as a young child, and to recall who were his mentors and especially ask himself why he was so driven to pursue what many would consider dangerous sporting activities - for example: professional football, mountain climbing, wilderness canoeing, cave exploring and scuba diving. In some ways this book could be considered a biography as Andy tries to tell his children, grandchildren, dear friends and the Steelers Nation (fans/readers) how he thinks about life, how lucky he has been, and what a positive influence they have all been. If one can write his legacy this book would be his attempt to understand himself. Andy explains how football has been such a primary force in his life and he has included many stories about the Steelers amazing transformation from a consistent loser in the 60's to the incredibly successful 70's. Football also provided Andy with the opportunity to travel around the world five years in a row, giving football clinics, making motivational speeches and personal appearances. During those trips he and his partner Sam Zacharias pursued their investment business, finding investors on the other side of our planet. Andy describes how he feels forever blessed to have had such an opportunity, all brought about by his football experience."
