Praise for Rocky Stories
"Two extraordinarily talented journalists, Michael Vitez and Tom Gralish, have captured this uniquely American phenomenon with whimsy, poignancy, and utter charm."John Grogan, author of Marley & Me
"Rocky Stories captures the sprawling complexity of life. It's a delight."Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down
"A book that is an absolute joy and an absolute blast and quintessentially American in its hopes and dreams and sweetness."Buzz Bissinger, author of Friday Night Lights and A Prayer for the City
"[C]harming photo essay of people who retraced Rocky's steps and felt their own exhilaration doing it."San Francisco Chronicle
"The extent to which the Rocky myththat of the perennial loser who proves he's 'not just another bum from the neighborhood'has resonated is documented in this winning book."Sports Illustrated
"I've only skimmed it, and already I'm in love with the book Rocky Stories. (It had me at the title.) It may sound like a movie tie-in, but it's not. It's just a fascinating testament to how the words 'Rocky' and 'underdog' are still interchangeable 30 years after the film's release."Entertainment Weekly's PopWatch column
"The Rocky steps have become a special place for tourists and Philadelphians alike. Virtually everyone who lives here or comes here wants to say that they ran up the Rocky steps and saw the incredible view down the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. When I was Mayor, the city planned 24 hours of millennium celebrations, one each hour. Of course we had to kick it off at the Rocky steps and we did so with 2,000 people all dressed like Rocky running up the steps at the same time. It was awesome."Former Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell

I have read and reread every story. I am inspired every time.
I might have to go to Philadelphia and run up those steps myself.
A collection of stories and photos about folks who visit the stairs made famous in Rocky in all four of nature's seasons. Insightful and touches the heart.Published 23 months ago by ellison
The thought of a rocky book left a lump in my throat, but the stories themselves were just "meh" - nothing that memorable, really.Published on February 13, 2013 by Kevin Austin
