From the Back Cover

Filled with explosive new information, this is the definitive inside story of the case that captivated the nation and the verdict that no one saw coming

It was the trial that stunned America, the verdict that shocked us all. On July 5, 2011, nearly three years after her initial arrest, Casey Anthony walked away, virtually scot-free, from one of the most sensational murder trials of all time. She'd been accused of killing her daughter, Caylee, but the trial only left behind more questions: Was she actually innocent? What really happened to Caylee? Was this what justice really looked like?

In Imperfect Justice, prosecutor Jeff Ashton, one of the principal players in the case's drama, sheds light on those questions and much more, telling the behind-the-scenes story of the investigation, the trial, and the now-infamous verdict. Providing an inside account of the case, Ashton, a career prosecutor for the state of Florida, goes where the press and pundits have only speculated, detailing what really happened during the investigation, showing how the prosecution built their case, and explaining how a woman so shrouded in suspicion was proclaimed innocent.

Moving beyond the simple explanations, Ashton offers an in-depth look at the complex figure of Casey Anthony, a woman whose lies he spent three years trying to understand. And yet this focus on Casey came with its own risks; here he details how this widespread fixation on Casey—both in the media and in the trial—may have undermined the case itself. As everyone got caught up in the quest to understand the supposed villain, somehow the victim, Caylee, was all but forgotten—not just to the public, but more important, to the jury.

Complete with never-before-revealed information about the case and the accused, Ashton examines what the prosecution got right, what they got wrong, and why he remains completely convinced of Casey Anthony's guilt.

HASH(0x9d775f54) out of 5 stars Another edition to a great series Feb. 17 2013
By CER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This series is by far, the best books written on pro-wrestling. each book provides a great (if short) history of their subject and the bios of each wrestler goes beyond the kay-fabe layer, providing a balance overview of each person. this copy is no different. to me the only criticism that can be made is on their choices. i won't say who shouldn't be there but it would have been nice to see the following included:

Billy Red Cloud
Chief White Owl
Danny Little Bear
Cowboy Frankie Lane
rest of the Von Erich family
Austin Idol
Carlos Colon
Terry Taylor
Brian Pillman
Ivan Putski
Tiger Mask (the original)
Argentine Apollo
Don Curtis
Leo Nomellini
Booker T
AJ Styles
several Mexican & Japanese wrestlers

HASH(0x9d781120) out of 5 stars Completes my set Feb. 15 2013
By David E Houston II - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have the books on heels and tag teams so I couldn't wait to get the one on the faces and it's lived up to the high standard set. I'm still only in the first section on the top faces of all time (just finished Whipper Watson) and it's already a great read.
HASH(0x9d775e58) out of 5 stars The internet is great but it can't compete with this book! Aug. 2 2015
By submariner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
SHOCKER!!!! I did not pick up this huge book for 2 months. Now I can't put it down. A great priceless gift for your grandpa or grandma if they were wrestling fans. They will love you for it. 547 pages packed with priceless pictures and endless stories on every wrestler you have EVER seen or not seen. A virtual Encyclopedia on ALL WRESTLING ORGANIZATIONS EVER! The internet is great but it can't compete with this book.
HASH(0x9da6b09c) out of 5 stars KUDOS to the "BABYFACES" ! Jan. 17 2016
By Stephen Guthrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I LOVED this book....and all the history of the "baby faces" from each decade ! He does a great job with so many wrestlers, each having their own summary page about themselves and their careers. THICK !! Lots and lots of wrestlers identified and reviewed...well worth the money, and a fun read throughout !

HASH(0x9db43c78) out of 5 stars Treasury of Wrestling Information Dec 14 2012
By Arlene Bryan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Authors Oliver and Johnson have done it again with their latest product "Heroes & Icons". Countless "good guys" are profiled with their backgrounds thoroughly researched and illustrated. The guys profiled include Verne Gagne, Bob Ellis, and Wilbur Snyder (and other exceptional performers from territories all over). Reading through a Oliver and Johnson production is truly a comprehensive history lesson about the professional wrestling business. Their books usually carry articles on the wrestlers from the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s - those special characters who entertained prior generations before our time. Anybody who wants to learn more about wrestling history outside their local territory should consider getting all the Oliver and Johnson products - including "Heels" and "Tag Teams". You will surely want to add these products to your wrestling library. Be careful about lending them out because they might not get returned.
