Description

Product Description

Get the full story in O.J. Simpson’s own words!

On July 31, 2007 Federal Court Judge A. Jay Cristol awarded the Goldman family the rights to If I Did It. Thus began one of the strangest odysseys in publishing history.

The book, called “one of the most chilling things I have ever read” by Barbara Walters, skyrocketed up bestseller lists across the country in fall 2007 as the national media relentlessly covered O.J. Simpson’s dramatic Las Vegas arrest for armed robbery and kidnapping.

Originally written by O.J. Simpson, this edition includes essays by the Goldmans and a member of the Goldman family legal team that reveal the fascinating story behind the bankruptcy case, the book’s publication and the looming court proceedings, that would eventually lead to his conviction.

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 acquitted of criminal charges. The victims'' families brought a civil case against Simpson, which found him liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole 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.

The Goldman family views the book as his confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read this book and learn the truth. This is O.J. Simpson''s original manuscript, approved by him, with up to 14,000 words of additional key commentary.

Review

“It’s as if Simpson is sitting across from the reader laying out his side of the story, one-on-one, no reporters or gossip columnists or Court TV vultures sticking in their beaks.”

( Vanity Fair)

“A confession? Judge for yourself. My feeling? You bet it is. The case is now officially closed. This appalling but mesmerizing book does it"

( The Buffalo News)

Simpson''s words read as those of a man unwilling to accept responsibility for his own violent actions.

( Adam Wilcox, True Crime Factor)

After seeing "the people vs OJ Simpson" i was convinced there was more to the story. I heard about this book and was very interested in it. When i read it and heard the audio book i cringed so hard. He''s a killer and abuser who used the color of his skin to convince the jury that it''s all about racism when it was no such thing. OJ DID it. his lawyers played up a narrative about being about a racist white cop. Yeah ok Oj. Basically if you''re interested in this case this is certainly a good read. I can see why the Goldman''s are still very upset even all these years later. It was all about OJ and Nicole and hardly about Ron. But he was a victim as well. I''m very happy they fought hard to get this out. It needs to be taken seriously.

The book delivers what it promised; that night in Simpson''s own words. Not every question is answered, but one question is repeatedly answered to the point the reader feels as if they are reading a persuasive essay: why they decided to publish this book. At times the explanation comes off as self serving to the Goldman family. The fact remains, they took what they felt was their only path to seek some type of justice. For me, the most disturbing parts of the book are not the murders. The psychological abuse, and "conversations" Simpson had with Nicole, are disturbing and terrifying. Ironically, the very voice that Simpson attempted to silence is loud and clear in his account.

I was in high school and our teacher let us watch the verdict be announced. With my cheering classmates behind me I felt physically sick. I was so happy the Goldman''s fought to get this book. Any victory for them has been a long time coming. O.J. spends the entire book leasing up to his confession trashing Nicole. He makes her out to be a slut, drug addict and worst of all he claims she abused him and he often feared her. He wants us to believe that she deserved this because of her behavior. He truly is a psychopath who does not deserve to walk around as a free man. I wonder if the jury ever feels guilt over their decision to let him go? Nobody will ever know the answer to that one. God bless the Goldman and Brown families as well as Nicole two precious children. Reading his own words about your loved one must have been excruciating.

I love novels and being transformed into another world. Reading this book I had to catch myself and remind myself that this is the mind of a physical abuser and a murderer. I disagree with a previous comment about skipping to chapter 6 for the murder. The reason is a simple one. When OJ talks about his relationship with Nichole, his focus is to paint himself as a great human being and is not perfect. He shifts all the blame onto her stating that she was violent and abusive and he was her great friend just trying to protect himself. He says how happy he was when she (by his account) took credit for everything that was wrong in the relationship and that she finally held herself accountable. He goes onto say that when she went through counseling, that resulted in her being made more aware of her anger issues and how so very wrong she was in the relationship. Again it is all her fault. He says she stalked him and called here endlessly and finally begged to get him back. He went back because she is so charming and beautiful. Wow talk about turning the tables when other accounts have it so different. He said the pictures she had locked up were self inflicted and he is by all accounts totally innocent except for a few minor human imperfections. This story is an old one that is heard so many times. The abuser hurt her because she brought it on herself. OJ was a very charming man that snowed a lot of people. The facts weigh out fiction. I recommend reading this as doing so will give insight into how the self centered arrogant abuser actually thinks. Maybe if we are all educated we can not feed the beast and leave them alone.

When I first purchased this book, I was under the impression that it''s entire contents was the confession. It is not, however I still liked how the book was put together. The "confession" is actually a short story at the very end, within the book, the rest are chapters from other individuals involved with the case. One of the things that I found impressive were the chapters by the Goldman''s, which I suspect were written by Fred Goldman, who is incredibly intelligent and articulate. He really captures your attention. I must be honest and say that as I began the chapter containing OJ''s confession in his own words, it was the very first and only time ever that chills came over my body from reading a book. While some don''t believe there was a "Charlie" (an accompanying individual who did not commit, but witnessed the entire murder), I whole-heartedly believe that person was A.C. Cowlings. Every comment that this supposed "Charlie" said sounds exactly like the things A.C. was saying to O.J. during the chase/suicide fiasco. "Please O.J., don''t do it. Stop. Put it away." In fact, the chase sounds like Part 2 to the O.J. confession. I wonder if anyone knows A.C.''s whereabouts the night of the murder and whether or not anyone has thought to ask.

This book is really interesting, and if you can interpret "OJ CODE," you''ll learn a lot.

He''s not speaking in a straight-forward honest fashion but reveals a lot in coded detail. A lot is revealed in Pablo Fenjves''s Prologue, where he describes how the book was written and OJ''s attitude throughout the process, and the games OJ played at the end, trying to trick Pablo, after the transcripts were submitted, into taking the blame for writing fiction when it came to the descriptions of the murders.

Years later, it would actually come to fruition, that OJ would try to pull off the scam of attacking his own book. If one goes to ojsimpson.co they will find a video attempting to debunk this book by pointing out the inaccuracies that OJ planted in it. Pablo called OJ on this scam, OJ denied he was trying to do it, and then attempted it years later, thinking that no one would remember, I guess? And basically, people don''t remember.

OJ exposes the fact that someone actually was with him at the murder site. I believe this it be true. The autopsy showed that there were two knives used in the killing of Goldman. It also shows that Goldman landed a lot of punches--via his bruised up knuckles and the fact that he was a karate expert--yet outside of a small cut on his left middle finger, OJ had no bruise nor signs that he''d been in any fight at all.

But OJ lied about a lot of obvious little details. He parked in Nicole''s back driveway, not across the ally from her place. He probably used stolen house keys to get into the back gate, rather than just push the gate open because the lock didn''t work. Also, Ron Goldman did NOT also enter the back gate, as OJ writes.

But the facts that Kato (the dog) wagged his tail when he saw Goldman, and also that Goldman went into his karate stance are probably true...how would OJ even know that Goldman was a karate expert? I''d never heard that before I read OJ''s book.

So, yes, some truth, and some fiction mixed in with it, the fiction purposely planted by OJ so that he could later "prove" that the whole chapter on the killings was pure fiction.

Another thing is, I believe he choose Fenjves to be the ghost writer, because Fenjves was a witness in his trail, and Fenjves''s testimony was at the cornerstone of Marcia Clark''s botched timeline. Fenjves testified that he heard a dog''s "plaintive wail" at 10:15 PM. He was wrong and there were plenty of locals who heard the dog''s wailing and barking after 10:35 PM.

OJ picked Fenjves because he knew his testimony was off, and that he could later point it out and say that this story was Fenjves''s attempt to justify his bogus testimony. I don''t think Fenjves lied in court on purpose, he was just mistaken about what time it was, and Marcia jumped all over it because it bolstered her erroneous theory of the time of the murders--but that''s another story.

So, if you''re willing to read other books about the murders and then combine it with this book, you''ll be able to better separate the BS from the truth in this book.

OJ''s battlecry throughout this book is that he''s trying to protect his children because of what a great and altruistic father he is. That''s his excuse for everything, including his excuse for killing Nicole in this book.

Another interesting note about this book is that, OJ considers this a work of fiction, BUT even in this fictional account where he really did commit the murders, OJ is still angry that people dare think he''s guilty!!! Haha. WTF? Funny guy.

I do not want to spoil this book for those who may be interested in Reading. The book presents itself as a backdrop to the OJ and Nicole relationship. Most of the book is about how they met, got married and how the public misunderstood who was really the aggressive abuser in the relationship. When it comes to the actual murder, it''s glossed over. There is some controversy as to how much OJ actually contribute it to this book. When you get to the section where he allegedly confesses, you''ll understand why there''s controversy about that. The book is supposed to give you a better insight into his relationship with Nicole, into their struggles and into her alleged emotional instability. But it is very difficult to understand what you should believe in this book.

To be honest I didn’t enjoy the book because it’s one sided. Everything you have learnt about O.J. he twist back on to others, making it a frustrating read. He paints a picture of a patient, kind, understanding man, who felt sorry for Nicole. Boy can he spin them. For fans of everything linked to this case it should be part of your reading list.
