Of all the books published about the Simpson murder trial, Anatomy of a Trial: Public Loss, Lessons Learned from The People vs. O.J. Simpson should be at the top of the list. Understanding the media coverage or that case and the effect that had on public perception, the parties to the case and the judiciary does more to explain the outcome and reaction than any other book written.
However, it’s not even mentioned in online site Bustle‘s April 5, 2016, piece, “13 Books About The O.J. Simpson Trial To Read If ‘American Crime Story’ Piqued Your Interest” by Jefferson Grubbs.

I wasn’t surprised in the least that Daniel Petrocelli’s book on the civil trial, “Triumph of Justice: The Final Judgement on the Simpson Saga” was left off the list. IMO this is the best book on the case as a whole, the relationship between O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown in particular.
“American Crime Story” declined to do an episode on the civil trial. It would have given Cuba Gooding a chance to show his acting chops.
Yes, Anatomy of a Trial is a must read.
Thanks, David. Daniel Petrocelli, so far as I’m concerned was hands down the best attorney of the lot on both trials.
Ive read almost book on the trial. I also watched the trial every day so I know what went on. The best books not on the list are Lawrence Schillers book, Hank Goldbergs book and Lange and Vannatters book.
I hope you have or will read mine.Thanks!
your book is good too
Thanks, Mike. 🙂
