As a player, as a coach, as a husband, and as a father. In Jim OBrien: Bucking the Odds, the highly successful coach of the Ohio State Buckeyes tells his whole story for the very first time.

From his 11 years at Boston College through the past four seasons at Ohio State, OBrien has had a reputation for getting the very best out of underachieving players. His achievements in Columbus have been nothing short of phenomenal, with successes including a Big Ten title, a Final Four appearance in 2000, and Coach of the Year honors in 2001. But OBriens toughest and most disappointing battle came when he lost his wife, Christine, who died from heart problems caused by a lengthy battle with Hodgkins Disease. As a result, he became a single father, and was left to raise two daughters. OBrien has gone from a virtual unknown to one of the most beloved figures in Ohio State basketball history.

In this book, Buckeye loyalists and college basketball fans everywhere will get a never—before—seen glimpse of the man who has definitely bucked the odds.
