After 30 years and six films, it’s time to ask ourselves, what have we learned from Rocky Balboa-Italian Stallion, comeback kid, and the single biggest reason tourists have spent three decades stampeding up and down the steps of the Philadelphia Art Museum? Plenty, says this spunky little gift book with all the best quotes and most beloved images from the Rocky series, including the latest installment, Rocky Balboa! The same qualities that have made Rocky such an inspirational character suffuse this book with charm. Here we revisit all the villains, all the most exhilarating and uplifting moments, the heart, soul, and eternal optimism that make Rocky a champion, whatever the outcome. The first Rocky won three Oscars(R). Like Rocky himself, this collection is a gloves-up winner. Enjoy page after page of the life lessons that Rocky imparts throughout his unforgettable films. They’re captured here in a tribute to the man who-through perseverance, dedication, confidence, and optimism-rose from the streets of Philadelphia to become Champion of the World and a true American hero. As Rocky would say, “It ain’t all muscle, it’s all heart.”
