The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson
It has been the most closely watched and controversial legal proceeding of our time, and Jeffrey Toobin has written the definitive history of what has become the trial of the century. Here is the whole story of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman and their aftermath, as it has never been told - rich in character, driven by the nonstop plot of a legal thriller, and nuanced by the foibles, vanities, and idiosyncrasies of its participants. Featuring a new chapter on the O.J. Simpson civil trial, The Run of His Life - hailed by The Wall Street Journal as "the pick of the litter" - is a breathtakingly paced narrative that will long outlast the daily headlines.

After you read this book, you will be left with no question that O.J. Simpson is guilty of killing Ron and Nicole. Toobin makes no secret that he is convinced of O.J.'s guilt, and lays out the evidence which overwhelmingly proves that O.J. did it. Toobin also shows the personalities of the attorneys on both the defense and prosecution. We learn how the egos of all of the attorneys got in the way of them doing their jobs, how the prosecution failed to do even a minimally professional job, and how the jury was swayed by outside information and by internal racial pressures. Toobin's book is fascinating, even years after the trial ended.
