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 he was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims’ families brought civil cases against Simpson, in which 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 for 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 additional insight from the Goldman family, Pablo F. Fenjves, and Dominick Dunne.

Quotes & Awards

  • “G. Valmont Thomas eerily embraces Simpson’s sound and speech patterns, making the audiobook more disturbing than the book. Hearing Simpson’s words at his most enraged, listeners will be impressed and possibly frightened with how well Thomas delivers this first-person narrative.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua Hutchins | 2/19/2014

    " Very informative book on the OJ's struggles with Nicole. Interesting to see what lead him to his actions. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 2/14/2014

    " This could not have made my point any clearer..... aOJ Simpson is a greedy killer. He did this book for fame and fortune. Proving its all about the money and just how fucked up the court system has become. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dora | 2/11/2014

    " This book was diffrent from all the other books i have read.This is like a real crime of those that that think they are bad.But do things and a mit to it becauase its better to tell the truth than telling a lie.At the same time thought it was cute but then thought about. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allen Price | 2/5/2014

    " Go right out and get this book because you will be donating to very good causes (battered women's programs) led by the Goldman family. You also won't believe what OJ's ghost writer tells him to his face. You'll get more insight into the Hollywood celebrity lifestyle than you may want, but you'll end up with a much broader perspective of "why he did it", not "if, I did it". Insightful and chilling. I'm glad the Goldmans wrestled with agony of publishing this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mscinmae | 2/3/2014

    " OMGosh I just finished this book and anyone who was remotely interested in this case or is stupid and believes the OJ or as he shall be further called by me, the killer, is not guilty, well here's his confession. We all knew it then but this book has his confession. When you read this you will see what I mean. Just the fact that he mentions that Ron Goldman went into a karate stance tells me it's true! In the whole book the killer never does or never has done anything wrong. It was all Nicole and so therefore it was her fault she got killed. I am so glad he is in prison now even if it's not for his worst crime. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cordell | 1/29/2014

    " I have to give it three stars because three stars means I liked it. Why did I like it. Because everybody knows O.J. did it and he admits it. He also gives the Ockham's razor's version of how the murders were committed. What do you know. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jannet | 1/24/2014

    " Wow, this took me back. An interesting read at very least... Go Goldmans! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline Frye | 1/18/2014

    " I thought it was a fantastic book! I couldn't put it down. Not saying that I agree with O.J., because I 100% think he did kill her and he pretty much confesses within the book. But I was a good read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michal Key | 1/11/2014

    " This book was OK. It was rather eery when OJ started describing the night Nicole and Ron died. We all know he did it, right? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara Canoni | 12/11/2013

    " Well he obviously did it but it didn't give any information that we didn't already know. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 11/23/2013

    " Can you say guilty psycho? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 11/22/2013

    " If you want to hear OJ talk about what a reasonable and giving husband he was for 200 pages this is the book for you! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Orlando | 11/11/2013

    " If two people hadn't been murdered, I would have considered this one of the funniest joke books I had ever read! One could definitely look at this as a guilty pleasure, but that's not the only thing about this book that's guilty! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcus | 10/2/2013

    " I think this is the true account of the slayings. It brought back the memories and answered many questions about what happened that night. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy | 9/30/2013

    " Horrible read. No real eye-openers and is told from a point that completely blames Nicole for 100% of what happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Renee | 9/12/2013

    " I learned that OJ did indeed murder Nicole...but that it was pretty much her own fault. I recommend listening to this book on tape (CD)- #6 track 11 is a highlight. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 1/2/2013

    " Interesting chapter by the writer, the chapter regarding "if OJ did it":) and the chapter written by D. Dunne. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Bernhardt | 12/6/2012

    " Interesting read to see O.J.'s perspective but not a great book otherwise. He throws in a zinger when it comes to the night of the crime. Is he making it up or was there really a mystery guest the night of the crime? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel Groves | 10/26/2012

    " A very odd book and very disturbing as you might have guessed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April Forshee | 10/17/2012

    " Another nail in the coffin for OJ. Why write this if you didn't do it? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Betsy Boo | 9/21/2012

    " Oh...he did it allright. He should rot in jail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 OJ Simpson | 10/14/2011

    " this book is simply the best book ever written "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 9/25/2011

    " I couldn't have been more angrier after reading this book. Although this is an easy read, I can't believe this man is not currently in prison for two murders. Hypothetical? Yeah, right! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 6/28/2011

    " Okay , I DID IT!!! And here is how...but wait, I didn't really do it. I am so glad the Goldman Family fought for the rights of this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Martinez | 6/22/2011

    " I just finished this book, I was a little disappointed with the details. Overall, a good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 4/12/2011

    " Only further solidifies the notion that OJ is a nutjob. Did he do it? No idea, but this book doesn't help one arrive at any conclusion in the least. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trish | 3/11/2011

    " The concept of this book is ingenious. The actual content is mediocre at best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 2/9/2011

    " My first Kindle book to read. It was a quick read and OJ actually tells how he could have committed the murder (with a friend there). Strange "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mandi | 1/18/2011

    " this is the absolute worst piece of trash i've ever read, shame on the brown family "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellie | 1/4/2011

    " This is such an oddly compelling read. It is truly beyond belief. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 DW | 1/2/2011

    "
    As for the story it tells: It was good to get an overview of the whole story in one sitting versus countless newspaper articles over months and months. Especially a (supposed) "first hand" account.

    As for the book at all: OJ, you're an idiot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trina | 12/4/2010

    " This book is more hype than substance. There is only one chapter that deals with the night of the murder. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 11/23/2010

    " All I can say is SPOOOOKY! and i put it under Biography for a reason....because i think he did it....obviously.
    P.S. Don't read this at night! "
