Bugliosi gives an "F" grade to Marcia Clark, Chris Darden, et. al. A failing grade? Really now, Mr. Bugliosi. The same evidence that convinced you, me and millions of other non-retarded individuals was presented by the very prosecutors you excoriate in this book. Yes, they were clumsy. Yes, they made critical errors. But let's face some salient facts here. Forrest Gump could have presented the overwhelming (and irrefutable) evidence in this case - merely by calling in the DNA experts, who proved beyond ANY doubt that Simpson's blood was dropped at the crime scene. Virginia Woolf, in the midst of a lithium overdose, could have been convinced of the disgraced NFL star's guilt.
Mr. Bugliosi states, with the supreme confidence of someone supremely confident, that "he could have convinced the O.J. juty to convict O.J." Come again? Let's be reasonable here. The genius prosecutor of Manson and his trogledyte terrorists did not have a jury inflamed by Rodney King, nor were Manson and his co-defendants sports icons. The Manson jurors were reasonable, compassionate people who listened to the evidence, maintained a healthy respect for justice, and saw through the sophomoric antics of the defense team.

Bugliosi first outlines the basic facts of the case: first, OJ is obviously guilty. His blood is found at the crime scene, in his Bronco, and at his estate. Nicole and Ron Goldman's blood are also found in all three locations. OJ created a suicide note, got a mask, and ran away from the cops. He told the police he "didn't know" why he was bleeding at the night of the murders -- at the exact same time the crime was being committed. He told Nicole he would kill her one day. The murder was not a burglary -- because nothing was taken. And the crime was definitely one of passion -- notice the knife. All the signs point to Simpson.
This book is an extremely useful one for myself because I do intend to be an attorney one day. Bugliosi provided many very simple tips on how best to argue one's case and to destroy one's opponents arguments. This is certainly a book I would recommend. There is no nonsense or hodgepodge in this book. A+!

As someone who does not watch television and does not own one, I was impartial on the subject of Simpson's guilt or non-guilt when I first spotted Outrage on an O'Hare airport bookshelf shortly after the trial was over. Having avoided all information about the case while the trial was in progress, I was no doubt viewed as quite dull during water cooler debates on the case, bashfully indicating that I was waiting to become informed until Vincent Bugliosi (the guy who wrote Helter Skelter, I would explain) wrote a book about it. I was quite satisfied with my prediction and my purchase as I boarded the plane to Boston.
As I started reading the book, I was somewhat taken aback by the ferocity of Bugliosi's tone. I was startled when he recommended that I put the book down if I had even the slightest doubt that Mr. Simpson had committed the double murder. Even though I surely fell into that category, having formed no opinion yet, I read on. As the plane began its descent into Boston in what seemed to be only seconds later, I was so deeply engrossed in the narrative that I felt annoyed by the disruption my arrival in Boston caused my reading.
I finished the book that night (the next morning). My emotions which at first were just simmering were now boiling. I was unable to sleep, having made Bugliosi's outrage my own. The tone I once thought ferocious now seemed singularly temperate. There is no doubt as to what happened in this case.Read more ›
Employing his unparalleled brand of logic and common sense, along with wit, humor, and an almost savage fury which has coursed through his veins since the disastrous outcome of the Simpson trial in October 1995, Bugliosi takes no prisoners, as he systematically hammers unrelentingly at the "mind-boggling incompetence" of the prosecution's case.
As Mr. B. so aptly points out to we who were previously blind to it, it really is hard to imagine how the prosecution's case could possibly have been worse. Particularly, I think, Christopher Darden's seemingly-endless string of abominations he uttered to the jury during closing arguments. These were statements that had to be some of the very LAST things a prosecutor should say to a jury when he is trying to convict a man for murders he so obviously was guilty of. Such gems like .... "I'm glad I'm not in your shoes" ... "You've got a tough job here." ... "We don't want to do anything to this man; I don't" (almost apologetic toward Simpson!) ... "The decision is yours, and I'm glad it's not mine." When thinking back to when I watched these proceedings live on national TV in September 1995, I can't believe, now, after having it "spoon-fed" to me (as Vince is wont to say) by Mr. Bugliosi that I wasn't screaming at my TV set at the top of my lungs due to the sheer idiotic nature of such Darden statements in closing arguments!Read more ›

After reading this book, it only made the obvious more obvious. If anyone had a "shadow of a doubt" it should have been put to rest after reading this book. Read morePublished on April 16 2013 by Brian Isleifson
This book is a very well written and argued case for the prosecution - that was never presented in court. We only learned after the trial was over of the real story. Read morePublished on March 7 2004 by J. E. Robinson
With the exception of Helter Skelter, I find that Vincent Bugliosi's books are all about him. He has an incredible opinion of himself, and everything relates to that. Read morePublished on Sept. 21 2003
