    Hayslett's book took me, as a professional whose work interfaced

    Hayslett's book took me, as a professional whose work interfaced with the court system for many years, right where I wanted to be: fly on the wall, and better yet, fly on the right wall to not only see the inner machinations of this high profile trial, but to hear the inner machinations of those directly involved in it. I already knew enough to stay away from the media feeding frenzy on this landmark trial: Hayslett's book brought me the information I craved about it.

    "Anatomy of a Trial" trailed the publishing explosion

    "Anatomy of a Trial" trailed the publishing explosion that followed the O. J. Simpson murder. What it lacks in timeliness it more than makes up in thoughtful reflections and behind-the-scenes detail and quotes not found in its predecessors. The author had daily access to presiding judge Lance Ito in her role as the court's media liaison. Her accounts from those sessions paint a rich personal portrait of the man who was the judicial face of the "trial of the century." I covered the Simpson murder trial and have read many of the books about it.
    If I'd had time for just one, this would have been a strong choice.

    I remember when the whole country was held spellbound by the O.J

    I remember when the whole country was held spellbound by the O.J.Simpson story unfolding before our very eyes on practically every TV channel. This fascinating book is a must read for serious journalism students as well as those curious about how the popular media and culture function in our society. ANATOMY OF A TRAIL opens the curtain allowing us to see through a professional journalist's eyes revealing what really happened in the interplay between the courts and the media.

    Fascinating Behind-the-Scenes Look at an Important TrialAs a for

    Fascinating Behind-the-Scenes Look at an Important TrialAs a former journalist, it was fascinating to read all the behind-the-scenes goings-on of the news media covering such an important trial. The book reads like a novel, which makes “Anatomy of a Trial” not only a very informative but a fun read. This book would make great supplemental reading in law, journalism, and other media college courses.

    Amazing book on courts and the trials

    This is the most fascinating book I've ever read on the court system and media's influence. I loved all the insider stories. Fantastic book. I couldn't put it down.
