The Weight Lifted collects Chicago Tribune sportswriter Paul Sullivan's coverage of the Chicago Cubs' historic 2016 championship season. The 16-article collection traces the arc of the Cubs' groundbreaking year, from their spring training in Arizona all the way to their rousing Game Seven victory against the Cleveland Indians.

Through interviews with players, fans, team manager Joe Maddon and other key figures, as well as in-depth reporting of the games as they happened, Sullivan details how the Cubs-once deemed "the lovable losers"-overcame the odds to end the longest championship drought in sports history. The Weight Lifted allows Chicago fans to relive the 2016 season from start to incredible finish-a dream that was 108 years in the making.
