Overview

Andy has always been attracted to athletic challenge, adventure and possibly even danger. In this book Andy tries to understand what it is 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 60s to the incredibly successful 70s. 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.
