Pulitzer Prize-winners Michael Vitez and Tom Gralish of the Philadelphia Inquirer spent a year visiting the Philadelphia Museum of Art to observe, photograph, meet, and capture the stories of Rocky runners, who come from all over the world to run up America’s most famous steps – just as Sylvester Stallone did in Rocky.

The book includes a foreword by Sylvester Stallone and interviews with Oscar-winning director John G. Avildsen and composer Bill Conti. It ties into the 30th anniversary of the first Rocky film (1976) and the release of Rocky Balboa on Fri Dec 22nd 2006.
