In 1994, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson were brutally murdered at her home in Brentwood, California. O.J. Simpson was tried for the crime in a case that captured the attention of the American people, but was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims' families brought civil cases against Simpson, and he was found liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole by committing battery with malice and oppression. In 2006, HarperCollins announced the publication of a book in which O.J. Simpson told how he hypothetically would have committed the murders. In response to public outrage that Simpson stood to profit from these crimes, HarperCollins canceled the book. A Florida bankruptcy court awarded the rights to the Goldmans in August 2007 to partially satisfy the unpaid civil judgment, which has risen, with interest, to over $38 million. The Goldman family views this book as his confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read this book and learn the truth. This is the original manuscript approved by O.J. Simpson, with up to 14,000 words of key additional commentary.--From publisher's description.

I read O.J.'s book first, then the chapters before and after his book, which I recommend (make sure it is the 2008 version as there are extra chapters). If people think this is how a love letter reads -- that's scary! I saw his book as a blame game -- blame the victim. She was a nag, she drank too much, she did drugs, she was sleeping around - wow! The way this man thinks and his ego is unreal. Definitely worth the read. And BTW, it is not gory, so don't worry about getting to the actual murder part. I also watched 'The People VS O.J.' and 'O.J.: Made in America' (both from the FV Library system). If you are interested in how he got off and how he became a sociopathic lying egomaniac, watch those vids. Keep in mind that The People VS O.J. is not a documentary, but the actual trial parts are true and much of the behind the scenes parts are true as well -- people love to share in America.

I wasn't really that impressed with this book. Like a lot of people said it is more like a love story. It's more about their relationship from OJ's point of view. The actual confession part wasn't as telling as I thought it would be. Still glad I gave it a read though.

Great book! I agree with neither the Goldman family or O.J. but it was a great read. Very realistic!

I thought this book was more a love story then a confession and it contradicted itself a lot. One moment O.J. was saying how he killed her, the next chapter was about how he could never kill her - completely crazy. O.J. has issues!
