Bruce Weber: Through My Eyes
An Inside Look at the Man, the Coach, and the Greatest Season in Illinois History

6x9 Hardcover 224pp

Millions of fans watched the memorable University of Illinois basketball team put the stamp of unselfishness on the 2004-05 college basketball season. It was a team that equaled the NCAA's all-time record of 37 victories while spending 15 weeks as the No. 1-ranked team in America. Fourteen players and a five-man coaching staff helped make it happen. But just one person - head coach Bruce Weber - sat in the cockpit while this amazing Illini team took its fans on an unforgettable jet ride. This is his story, from Bruce Weber's unique viewpoint, of the two-year process by which he helped transform a group of discouraged, disjointed basketball players into a family linked by a love for each other and a willingness to place team goals ahead of individual accomplishment. It's also the story of Weber's own emotional journey, one in which he had to sell himself to players and fans alike, one that forced him to deal with serious internal issues, and one that ultimately brought him face-to-face with his own deep personal tragedy. Weber's story is written by 31-year veteran sportswriter Mark Tupper of the Decatur Herald & Review, who had a press row seat for every Illini game along the way. It captures, in Weber's candid, upfront style, the action behind the scenes, the strategies employed by the Illini coaching staff and the magic with which this group electrified college basketball by trying to chase down the dream of a lifetime.
