Publisher's Summary

From the outside, the prosecution's case looked bulletproof, but Marcia Clark knew better. Mountains of physical evidence connected O. J. Simpson to the murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, but that didn't mean it would be easy. For the woman charged with prosecuting the "Trial of the Century", the light of fame would glow white hot, as the media scrutinized her strategy, her family, even her hair. As the case spun out of control, Marcia Clark stood tall - a single mother fighting an army of overpaid attorneys and a judge who let the media coverage go to his head. Now she tells her story.

The bloody glove, the botched evidence collection, the LAPD's war with the black community of Los Angeles - Marcia Clark understands every moment of the O. J. Simpson trial like no one else. In this gripping account of her life, her career, and the trial that made her a legend, Clark shows what it truly means to fight for justice.

    "Brilliant"

    The book version of this is different from the audio version; the order of some parts is mixed and the book seems to have a bit more information.

    If you watched the tv show, then you simply must listen to this book. The Tv show was good but it missed a lot of important arguments and details. Not to mention, the Tv show does not come with narration which is key to those without law degrees.

    Story
    "She had conviction..."
    Any additional comments?

    I came here after being one of the many millennials to experience the trial of O.J. Simpson for the first time through the FX mini-series; American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson. My reasoning for choosing this book is because of the way in which Marcia Clark was portrayed and treated in the show, I wanted to learn more about her and her story, what better way to do so than to experience her book read aloud in her own voice.This book was an excellent memoir detailing the trials and tribulations (quite literally) of Marcia's life, both during the O.J. circus and in her life leading up to it. That being said, this book is not entirely what I was expecting. I came to this book with the idea that it would be a scathing, 10 chapter rant about the so called 'Dream Team', the media, Judge Ito and the jury, although there were aspects of my assumptions present in her work, Marcia chose to talk openly about how the trial effected her emotionally and physically, personally and professionally. Far from the stone cold bitch she appears when on a roll in the courtroom, Marcia showed herself to be a warm and humble person, a feat that must have been incredibly difficult coming off a time where every aspect of her appearance, personality and behaviour was scrutinised on every news stand across the USA.If you're old enough to remember watching the trial, prepare to relive the experience through the eyes of one of the key players. If, like myself, you're a millennial coming from The People vs O.J, prepare to experience a deeper and unrestricted insight to the backstage happenings of the trial. If you're one of the people who was sceptical or judgmental of any aspect of Marcia Clark, prepare to feel a pang of guilt at your young, uninformed and misguided views.

    "Absolutely Riveting"

    I loved it!

    It was absolutely riveting and I really appreciated hearing directly from Marcia as she reflected back on her feelings and experiences during that difficult time.

    I enjoyed her candour and her no-holds-barred blunt options; she doesn’t pull any punches! (nothing nice to say about Judge Lance Ito… Yikes!!!)

    I was so absorbed by the “behind the scenes” machinations, it made me want to read a version told by someone on the Dream Team to see how their brains work. Being in the “he did it camp” myself, I can completely sympathize with the prosecution’s case and can’t imagine their devastation upon losing… but what drove the defence? Money? I find it impossible to imagine that they really thought he was innocent.

    What a complicated mess!

    "Marcia On Point!"

    Generally, I'm deterred and purposely refrain from an abridged novel as it neglects poignant details, however, Marcia hit the highlights and articulately delivers with unwavering passion.

    "An inside look"

    After completing the recent Fox series on OJ I took renewed interest in the story. I always thought he was guilty & was shocked & saddened to watch the actual story unfold along with the racial issues that were evident. I was disgusted by the "dream team". Marcia Clark has a great deal to be proud of with her handling of a very difficult case. She has done quite well for herself, many others have not. Really enjoyed her reading of the story

    "Marcia Clark's version of the trial."

    Over 20 years later and due to the recent TV show I'm finally listening to books I had not yet listened to about the OJ Simpson trial. I lived in Southern California back then and it was THE news for the months of took for the trial. It is nice getting some perspectives not possible at the time.
    I feel this abridged version is perfectly adequate for this story, and I don't think if the unabridged version comes out of would be worth the purchase or the credit to hear it.
    I am glad that Clark herself read the story and feel she's is a very good reader.
    OJ did it, and he got away with murder because of many problems and not just the Prosecutors, if anything I think the biggest failure sits with former Judge Ito to be in control of his Court. I think the results and demeanor of the civil trial proves that.
    Next book I'm listening to regarding this trial is the book by Vincent Bugliosi. Then I'll be OJ'd out!

    "Thank You Marcia Clark"

    The ending was pretty amazing, as she describes how her life moved forward with the writing of this book. Having faced a 30 yr silence for an issue she endured at 17 yrs old, I completely relate to her story, back when she was young, innocent & vulnerable.

    I didn't know this was abridged until the end. I never purchase abridged books, but honestly -- I had no idea what I was missing because it was clear, concise & complete. now I am interested in listening to the full story..
    Thanks Again Marcia Clark, you rock :)

    Story
    "Solid, revealing, full of upstanding character"

    Marcia Clark is a woman of strength, brains, and character. She also is a wonderfully expressive writer; accurately revealing all the behind-the-scenes goings on of the OJ murder trial, the politics, the emotional ups and downs that she went through, and also of all those related and affected by OJ's violent murdering of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. We also see the smarmy acts of the so-called Dream Team, as well as the social racial reasons for why the jury may have chosen to ignore the obvious and factual guilt of OJ. There is so much more. Yes, it's true that many of us are quite familiar with the "story beats", already. Yet, I still learned much more, was awakened to other fresh ideas that I hadn't been aware of before (this book IS that rich). HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    Story
    "Unfortunately, nothing new"

    Adequate, but disappointing… While this has all the information you could want about the crime and details of what happened in court play-by-play… There's really no new information, if you've ever watched any of the many, many documentaries or specials on OJ Simpson or Nicole Brown.
    So if that's the true working for, this is not it.
