What went wrong in the O.J. Simpson double-murder trial? Former prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi dares to lay bare the bungling he perceived in the case. Incriminating evidence was never presented and lapses in strategy left prosecutors Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden at a disadvantage. These are just a few of the fatal errors that led to a victory for the defense. Listen as Bugliosi weaves his own final summation, laying out the evidence in its proper sequence and forestalling or rebutting the ploys of the defense. Bugliosi is familiar with high-profile murder trials, his most famous one being the Charles Manson case, which became the basis for his book, Helter Skelter. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 2/15/2014

    " Self-serving, as usual for Vince Bugliosi, but a decent review of the OJ trial. Shows from a courtroom expert how the trial when awry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colt | 2/11/2014

    " Some can accuse Bugliosi of Monday Morning Quarterbacking, however make no mistake that the man never lost a murder trial that he prosecuted, 21-0 at last count. Vince's style of writing might not be liked by some but I find it refreshing as he personalizes it as if he was sitting in the room with you having a discussion regardless of how lecturing it is. Though most of his heat is directed towards the prosecution of this case he doesn't give the defense in this case glowing reviews either, suggesting that the only reason for their success was due to the incompetence of the prosecution's execution of the case. However it scathing criticisms don't stop there as he takes on the role of peeling back the media coverage and how it eventually effected much of society and how this case served to set back race relations in this country by the actions of the defense argument when they interjected race. I've only seen Bugliosi in action once (a mock trial of Lee Harvey Oswald) and it isn't difficult to see why had he been the prosecutor in this case that the world wouldn't have had to wait another fifteen years to put Simpson behind bars for criminal behavior. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alaina | 2/10/2014

    " Wow, is Vincent Bugliosi mad about this verdict! And reading his account of the incompetence of almost everyone involved, I tend to agree with him. This was a slam-dunk case that the prosecution somehow managed to lose anyway. Their lack of preparation was astounding. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stan | 2/8/2014

    " One of the BEST books I have ever read, I think I have read it like three times now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick Coffey | 2/7/2014

    " Apt title. Bugliosi wrote this book shortly after the "Not Guilty" verdict and he is pissed. This was an interesting book, that really delved into the myriad of issues that the lawyers from both sides (but mostly the prosecution) had in trying this case. Bugliosi's interpretations of what happened generally differ from that which many members of the media portrayed and presented an insight into the trial that I hadn't been exposed to. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Huma Rashid | 2/2/2014

    " Bugliosi rips the jury, the defense (so-called "Dream") team, Judge Ito, and the prosecution a new one in this book, and it's clear that he's quite angry and bitter and disgusted about what happened. Appropriate emotions, certainly. Not as well-written as Helter Skelter, and he still has no idea what an epilogue is, but it was engaging and compelling throughout. I particularly enjoyed the bolded portions in which he illustrated what his arguments in response to certain points would have been. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 1/27/2014

    " It was a little dry and technical for my taste but had great insights "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/1/2014

    " I've been wanting to read this book for some time, but I downloaded the free sample on my Kindle first and I sure am glad I did; I could barely take those fifteen minutes worth of Bugliosi's huge ego, let alone an entire book's worth. I can't tell you how happy I am I didn't spend 10 bucks only to receive the literary equivalent of some egomaniac masturbating at himself in the mirror for 528 pages. I think he's let a few things go to his head juuuuust a little bit... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joe Faust | 12/23/2013

    " The definitive book on the O.J. Simpson murder case and trial, this should be required reading for everyone who plans to practice criminal law. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jean Marie Angelo | 11/30/2013

    " Some years ago I became obsessed with legal journalism and the O.J. trial in particular. I list this book in my spirit of getting as complete a list as I can. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl Schibley | 11/24/2013

    " good read on the o.j. case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randy Cauthen | 11/24/2013

    " The last, long section of this is a pretty good primer in forensic rhetoric. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheila | 11/20/2013

    " Helped me to better understand truth & justice and the U.S. court system. Very knowledgeable and experienced author AND lawyer. A travesty of justice (my opinion!) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Don | 11/3/2013

    " Bugliosi can get a little to technical with the lawyer speak, but he methodically lays out compelling examples how the prosecution allowed a guilty murderer go free. Of all the books written about the O.J. Simpson murder trial, this one must be read first. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bernie | 10/20/2013

    " Best book on the OJ Trial. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 8/14/2013

    " what was not already obvious to anyone who followed the case, Bugliosi, goes into detail. Painstaking detail, that you will skim over, but the facts are all there. And he was very very guilty "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 7/31/2013

    " I love me some Vince Bugliosi but really, who couldn't have convicted Manson? I don't agree with his premise that it was the PA's and not the jury. Sorry, I just don't. The Judge and the Jury were AWFUL. The DPA's made some mistakes for sure but I don't think it is fair to lay it at their feet. "

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

    " More like 3 and 1/2 stars. Interesting read about how the prosecution royally dropped the ball on the case. I like Bugliosi's voice but he can get a little preachy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim | 12/17/2012

    " This is a sobering account of the so-called "trial of the century" of O.J. Simpson. It is rare that I read a book where the author's anger virtually boils from the page but Bugliosi pulls no punches in deconstructing the various players in this saga. A terrific read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harold | 12/15/2012

    " GREAT book, so very well written by Vincent Bugliosi [the man who put Charles Manson away]! Gives us an idea of how the case went wrong and how Bugliosi would have handled things! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 11/14/2012

    " I like when the author points out that all girls in the murdered ex-wife's family have fake boobs but none have a college education (!). Quite the tell-tale sign of what they find important... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mitzi | 10/16/2012

    " This is just Vincent Bugliosi tooting his own horn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 8/8/2012

    " I'll never look at Detective Nordberg the same again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anita Luebbers Hudson | 4/19/2012

    " I really tried to like this book, but I just hated it. I couldn't even finish it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn Stone | 11/28/2011

    " Fascinating. I have alot of respect for former prosecutor Bugliosi. Looking back, I didn't know half of the truth that this book sheds to light about the overwhelming evidence that existed against OJ. The media didn't give the whole picture but this book sure does. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam Novack | 11/23/2011

    " Of course he did it! Are there only five reasons? Seriously, I always enjoy reading books by Bugliosi, and this was no exception. I just wish it was longer. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karola | 11/10/2011

    " It speaks for itself. The prosecution did NOT do a very good job yet if the defense had even one iota of evidence showing OJ to be innocent, wouldn't they have brought it? What a tragedy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 9/27/2011

    " An exceptional book that layes out in detail how OJ Simpson got away with murder. The author brings up many points that only someone with his experiences would know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 7/11/2011

    " Bugliosi is a very entertaining writer. His arguments are well crafted and highly informative. Definitely gives a new view of "the trial of the century". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stan | 5/15/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 10/22/2009

    " Great insights into the trial. It taught me a lot about our legal system and helped me appreciate it better. I got all outraged over OJ's aquittal all over again. But judgements started wearing on me in the end. He is an excellent prosecutor and writer, but he is pompous and stident. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 6/9/2009

    " This author is a little pompous, but this book was intriguing none-the-less. I personally find it an "Outrage" too, that this man was found innocent. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anita | 4/27/2009

    " From someone who knows -- the prosecutor of Charles Manson -- here is a point by pont breakdown on how the prosecution of O.J. Simpson made serious mistakes, and let a killer go free. "
