Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Our criminal justice system has become high-stakes reality TV. Nobody knows that better than charismatic Court TV commentator Nancy Grace. And nobody feels more fervent about the importance of our judicial system that this former Atlanta special prosecutor, who began her legal career after the murder of her fiancé. In Objection!, she presents her outspoken critique of today's legal culture, using high-profile court cases -- involving Michael Jackson, Scott Peterson, Robert Blake, Kobe Bryant, Martha Stewart, and others -- to prove her points.
Publishers Weekly
Grace, an ex-prosecutor who for years has been a fixture on Court TV and now CNN, attacks criminals and their lawyers in this fiercely opinionated critique of the criminal justice system. Grace became a prosecutor after her fianc was murdered and claims to have achieved a 100% conviction rate. A political shuffle cost her that job, but God, she believes, led her to the airwaves to continue her battle of good against evil. Defense attorneys, she contends, are con artists whose job is "to obscure the truth from the jury." Other targets of the author's wrath are celebrity defendants who, she says, receive special treatment at trials and in sentencing; greedy citizens who talk their way onto juries to gather material for instant books; and hucksters who sell memorabilia collected from depraved criminals. Grace inveighs against those who profit from high-profile trials, but fails to note that her own role as television's pro-prosecution talking head could be criticized on that ground. Grace energetically argues that television cameras should be allowed at all trials. No matter how self-serving this proposal may be when made by a prominent member of the "24/7 media," the idea is intriguing and enlivens what is otherwise a fairly predictable and angry rehash of O.J., Peterson, et al. Agent, Frank Weymann. (June 8) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
With the help of celebrity journalist Clehane, Court TV commentator and former Atlanta prosecutor Grace has written a scathing if scattershot critique of the U.S. criminal justice system. Sparing only the prosecutors, she lambastes defense attorneys, judges, jurors, and the media in equal measure, making broad generalizations about their biases based on her personal trial experiences and the 1980 murder of her fianc . Expect acidic commentary on such recent tabloid fodder as the celebrity trials of Martha Stewart, Robert Blake, Michael Jackson, and Kobe Bryant. And expect controversy: In Chapter 6, for instance, she appears to challenge the practice of providing public defenders for indigents charged with crimes because of the cost. Grace is in favor of the death penalty because, she says, many people want it and some crimes deserve it. She doesn't address charges, however, that some prosecutors selectively seek the penalty because of race and other extraneous criteria. This book is meant to be outspoken, and it certainly manages that. But as this is just one former prosecutor's opinion, readers can judge for themselves.-Harry Charles, St. Louis, MO Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Outspoken, In your face, NOT LIBERAL!

    Finally someone who isn't afraid to tell it like it is about our criminal justice system. This book isn't written by some liberal who is whining about how many innocent people that are on death row. This book is about the victims and what they go through. Finally a fresh voice! Someone who isn't afraid to be hard on criminals and tough on crime. She is a victim of crime and now she is turning a tragedy into helping victims. This book is great, if you want to know the truth about what goes on in court rooms read this book!!

    I Liked Her, Now I Love Her....

    I really enjoy her show and have liked her for quite some time. Now after reading her book, I love her. I love that she's exposing all these horrible attacks against justice, victims and citzens in general. I know a lot of people do not like her, but I urge you to read it even if that is the case. This book is really good and is completely eye opening. Who knows, you might end up having a whole new respect for her in the end. I know I do. She's just great...really.

    Louder is NOT Better

    Generalizations without recognized sources and ranting without factual support, this author's take on the judicial system is no more than rabid pandering to the 'reality TV' set. There is nothing new here, literary or otherwise, to further any meaningful discourse on what our judicial system SHOULD be and why many of us believe we have failed to achieve justice for all in America. With this book, Nancy Grace has become a caricature of herself who, at her best, is nothing more than a television muckraker and opportunist. With a voice that loud, it is a pity she doesn't have something more meaningful to say.

    Excellent!!!

    Finally, someone tells the truth! It is about time someone tells it like it is, rather than what society and our justice system wants us to hear. This book tells it like it is and it is one that everyone needs to read. Thank you for such a wonderful, eye opening book Nancy!!!

    Nancy says what some of us would like to say......

    I loved the book from beginning to end. Nancy points out the facts and does speak up and say what some of us would like to say but don't. She asks questions that are pertinent to the situations. She tells the story behind the scenes and lets us in on what is really going on. Now, I can see why people want to 'run away', 'become victims' or try to get on a jury. It's all about money. The lawyers are all about money. If you don't like this book, I hope you never do anything wrong in your life and have to deal with the justice system. I would like to have Nancy on my side and who else signs off their newcast with Goodnight Friend and truly means it? Thanks Nancy for a great book!

    Highly Opinionated but TRUE!

    A wonderful book. Nancy is so honest with her thoughts and opinions on this ridiculous judicial system of ours. Her book is as enjoyable as her shows. Here's a woman who is not afraid to speak her mind regardless of what people think. She certainly does not make many new friends with this book but she speaks what many of us wish we had the nerve to. Thank you Nancy, for putting into words what those of us with any common sense have been thinking for years!

    another media clown

    How anyone can turn to this weirdo for information about the criminal justice system is really hard to understand. Her writing is as sloppy as her appearance. Her shrill approach to broadcast journalism is a true disgrace. This book is another of her attempts to make money off of a prosecution career that went nowhere. She has been cited as a menace to sound judgement and fair play. Yuck. Wake up, CNN, you're losing more than credibility when she's on the air.

    All noise, no substance

    Nancy Grace is the Queen Bee of presumed guilty. The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean this book is not. As for the writing, the meandering style covers very little new ground. Instead of providing generalizations on multiple cases she might have been better served putting one particular case under the microscope. She need look no further than her partner in crime on court tv catherine crier for inspiration. Her book on the Peterson case was riviting.

    For Pete's Sake, give Nancy a break!

    Not only was this book a joy to read, but Nancy's style of encorporating multiple cases is very effective! She stands at the true heart of the justice system! Way to go Nancy!

    Still Seeking Justice

    many of us will never know what a prosecutor goes through to bring an alledged criminal to justice ...the crime scene,the morgue, the victims families, the pictures of the dead victim on the walls of their office......and the stories that humanize these people and the pain that remains with them forever..nancy grace does this better than anyone with her passion,courage and humor...i loved it
