A Season on the Brink is a book by John Feinstein which detailed the 1985-86 season of Indiana University's men's basketball team, led by the controversial coach Bobby Knight. Extremely well received when first published, the book is often referred to as "the bestselling sports book of all time." Granted almost unprecedented access to the IU basketball program, as well as insights into Knight's private life, the book spawned a new genre, as a legion of imitators wrote works covering a single year of a sports franchise.

Film version

A film version of A Season on the Brink was made in 2002, becoming the first ESPN television movie. The movie was filmed in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, and is notable for its prevalent use of profanity, intended to accurately represent Knight's tirades.
