Even taken with a grain of salt, and if only a small percentage of what is written in this book about the media, law enforcement, the legal representatives and even expert witnesses is true, they should be ashamed of themselves.

It was a long read due to the amount of people involved and the evidence, and at times I struggled with the timeline of events. The trial itself was interesting and what kept me absolutely riveted was the legal wrangling. I thought Jose a bit arrogant with a chip on his shoulder, but for all that I liked him well enough. He didn't have an easy job to do. Although a lot of it was repetitive, it was a still a good read, but it left me with a lot of unanswered questions.
This book was interesting and really very eye-opening. I cannot believe that the media and the prosecution were so hell bent on destroying this young girl who in all probability actually had nothing to do with the death of her child. It really makes you think about all the lies we are being fed on any and every thing. I had to change my opinion of Casey Anthony.
I hope she has found peace somewhere far away from her disgusting excuse of a family. Aug 31, Savanah Rae rated it really liked it Shelves: true-crime.

Jose Baez is a good lawyer but she's a con artist for sure. Casey Anthony's daughter Caylee goes missing for 31 days. No one in the Anthony family has seen her and also didn't report her missing. Weird, huh? Casey Anthony has lied about her daughter going to a nanny who supposedly kidnapped her daughter.

Her daughter is missing but she's clubbing and staying with her boyfriend. Her parents have their own secrets but they seem concerned their granddaughter is missing but don't report her missing, even though their daughter lies about Caylee being with the nanny all the time. I mean this book didn't really give any more information than you would know if you read the case but it was interesting to read it from her lawyer's side. I enjoyed this book very much and can see why she's the most hated person in the world.

This book written by Casey Anthony's attorney does a good job of explaining what was going on behind the scenes that the media was choosing not to cover because it didn't fit their storyline.
It also shows how sadly, that is the same approach the police and prosecution took.
Hate to say it, but I was convinced that while Casey Anthony is a screwed up chick, she didn't kill her kid. The book still only gets three stars though because it was written in a really obnoxious way - like Baez is writing for an audience that thinks he's a much bigger deal than he actually is. The David v.
Goliath thing is cool, but it got old after a while. He tries to pretend like he's humble but he comes across as anything but. Worth the read though and because it's a total guilty pleasure read, it goes fast. Aug 04, Sarah rated it it was amazing. Like millions of others, I followed this case from the start.

This book did not answer any questions for me,it actually created more.
What it did do for me, was made me understand the jury's decision. When it happened, I thought these people must be stupid. Now I think if I was on that jury, I would have probably said not guilty as well. I am very glad I was not on that jury Jul 22, Trena rated it it was amazing.

Jose needs to back away from the kool-ade, he also needs a hankie for all the poor me, and a longer arm to pat himself on the back. Nov 26, Morgan added it.

A well written book with a detailed account of what happened with the dissapearance of this little girl and how her mother was accused and jailed, for this. A book I just had to finish.

I remembered reading about the people protesting outside of Casey Anthony's house when Caylee Anthony was missing and thinking that the people protesting either needed to start doing the hard work of searching the fields or go home.
I'm not sure if my horror over the mob mentality against Casey Anthony predisposed me to think she was innocent or if it was the fact that the evidence against her was so weak, but I was never certain beyond a reasonable doubt that she was guilty. I never bought the I remembered reading about the people protesting outside of Casey Anthony's house when Caylee Anthony was missing and thinking that the people protesting either needed to start doing the hard work of searching the fields or go home.
I never bought the chloroform idea, because chloroform has to be continuously applied to keep someone unconscious, and the duct tape evidence seemed weak, and I was bothered by the fact that George Anthony was never ruled out as a suspect prosecutor Jeff Asthon even admits this in his book, Imperfect Justice, saying that they just never got that vibe with George. Well, abusers tend to be very charismatic. I tended to think that it was most likely that Casey had murdered Caylee but there was no evidence and there was always some doubt that led me to wonder if George Anthony had been responsible.
The only thing I was sure of, based on my work with people victimized by incest, was that George Anthony had sexually abused Casey. The pathological lying, the denial, the dissociation, the partying are all hallmarks of someone who was sexually abused by a family member. Let's say, after reading defense attorney Jose Baez's side, it's easy to see why Casey Anthony was found to be not guilty.
Unlike the prosecutors, Baez's book was awash in facts and he also presented what the prosecutors did not: explanations. Why did Casey pretend to go to work every day for two years and to have a pretend nanny for two years?
Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story
To protect Caylee from her father. What happened to Caylee? She drowned in the pool in a terrible accident. Baez presents a lot of evidence to back this claim. He also presents a lot of evidence that George Anthony knew and that George Anthony disposed of Caylee's body. Another thing that never got reported in the media but is in trial testimony is that George Anthony would dispose of family pets by wrapping them in a blanket and sealing them with duct tape and putting them in the woods.
Which was how Caylee was found. Baez also pulverized the prosecutor's case. Something I'd not considered was that Caylee's DNA was not on the duct tape allegedly used to kill her, yet if she had been suffocated by duct tape, wouldn't her saliva and mucus be all over the duct tape? He similarly destroyed accusations that Casey was chloroforming Caylee and that Caylee's body had been in her car.
I have read both sides. Baez's case is stronger in every possible way. Before reading this I sort of reluctantly thought Casey had done it but there wasn't enough evidence. After reading it I am convinced that Caylee drowned, and that George Anthony threatened Casey and disposed of Caylee's body.
As for how much I enjoyed this book? In all honestly it was tedious. Ironically, what makes Baez a good lawyer makes him a bad writer. As a lawyer he has to present evidence verbally in a chain of argument and repeatedly.
http://kamishiro-hajime.info/voice/logiciel/source-cydia-logiciel-espion.php In a book where you can re-read things, this simply became tedious and repetitive as he went over the same things over and over again. When we finally got to the trial I was skimming over large portions of it. I also got a bit tired of reading about Baez's personal life. With the understanding that the case bled over into his personal life and he was viciously attacked in the media for defending Casey, it was outside of my interest.
He also went into every aspect of the case in such meticulous detail that it got to be a bit much. And the overwhelming bias got to me a few times. That said, there are important things about how detectives and prosecutors start to build a case against someone and ignore evidence that doesn't support their conclusions. Considering that people's freedom AND lives are on the line, this is simply not acceptable. Back while reading Asthon's book I was wondering why George Anthony was never considered to be a suspect other than that the detectives liked him and he used to be a police officer.
