In the same year, he edited Scott McClellan's political memoir What Happened, which was a number one New York Times bestseller. He also edited companion books for two acclaimed documentary movies, Food Inc. and Waiting for “Superman”; both books appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. Weber's most recent book on politics is Inside the Five-Sided Box by former secretary of defense Ash Carter (2019), which he edited.
Each summer, Weber directs the editing workshop of the Denver Publishing Institute. He is the proprietor of Rivertowns Books, which publishes books by authors whose work Weber supports.
