    Very bias

    This book took the prosecutor's side and it is not completely accurate. Well written, but contains misleading information and will make you believe Kobe is guilty.

    The Only Book on the Kobe Case

    Awesome summary of a 'case' that never went to trial - great writing told from a neutral point of view. I recommend this book to anyone interested in Kobe Bryant, the NBA or the case. I also recommend 'Friday Night Lights.'

    Trash Talking

    I wound up reading this book after the case was over and was shocked to see this journalist write from such a one sighted point of view. It is as if the prosecutor and the accuser hired this author to write this and obviously the info for the book came from the prosecutors point of view. This book is so obviously biased that it made it hard to read especially after knowing the outcome.

    Biased

    Jeffrey Scott Shapiro and Jennifer Stevens do not even attempt to be impartial. They present the evidence that makes Kobe and the prosecutars seem as if he was already guilty. Shapiro and Stevens create this scenerio that is completely fantasy. The scenerio is based on the accusers account of the story, which for all anyone can know could be false. They have already condemned Kobe as guilty.

    Excellent Investigative Reporting

    Shapiro is a well known journalist who has apparently been around the block a few times. This time he really stepped in it. The book has a very good analysis of Bryants life. But what is truly amazing though is the information this group has collected this early in the process. This book is a tribute the hard work of some excellent investigative journalists.

    Guilty Until Proven Innocent

    This is a book that can play a major role in the actual case, but it also serves as a major blow to the Defense. It will change the publics opinion on the case, but remember that all the information is not 100% acurate. Also, this book is average at best, and it tries to make you believe that Kobe is guilty. Don't base your whole perception of the real case on this book because it is in a way bias towards the Prosecution.

    A Tragic Story

    Jeffrey Shapiro's book is a fascinating account of what happened between Kobe Bryant and Lilly Fuller on that fateful night at a Colorado hotel last year. Filled with new information and interesting details, the book offers insight into what the victim has experienced since her terrible ordeal. It also reveals what Kobe and his family have been going through, and how the incident has negatively affected them. It's nice to see a book that doesn't trash the victim, because she has gone through so much trauma already, especially at the hands of the tabloids. Even though I believe that Kobe is guilty, this book almost made me feel sorry for him. Shapiro made it a point to show both sides in a favorable light. This is a tragic story for both parties involved. A definite must read!
