    Book lover and Bookseller

    I was somewhat disappointed in the book because I thought it would include more information on the case itself. The book mainly explores the thoughts and feelings of the Jury and how it feels to decide the fate of someone's life.

    We, the Jury: Deciding the Scott Peterson Case

    This book was most fascinating in regards to the juror's dedication to the process, and the minute details they witnessed in the courtroom that we never heard in the media. The three juror dismissals were detailed and interesting. A must read.

    STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE A PEN PAL TO SCOTT?

    This was a very upsetting book especially because the most desperate juror (next to Amber Frey) has been writing to Scott. Supposedly for her therapy but I think she also is a very desperate woman. I bought the book not to help the jurors pockets to gain more information on way this man was wrongfully convicted. It is so obvious that this story captured the nation on Christmas Eve, a very wonderful family on both sides and then a NOT SO NICE GIRL and her outrageous attornery enter the picture to cash in the big bucks. Where would they be now if Scott was found not guilty. These people are evil and Scott is paying the price for being stupid and setting himself up for a one night stand with a very desperate and easy woman. Sharon's book was a much better read, it was heartfelt and sincere. I think deep down in her heart she too thinks Scott was wrongfully convicted, just by her comments on Larry King. I think she dug herself into a hole and now she will look foolish to change her story. Still she is the mother of beautiful Laci and her book is worth it. The juror's are cukoooooooo.

    Intriguing and Disturbing

    No Peterson case library will be complete without this book. That being said, some of the readers have complained about the way it was written, and I don't think the ghostwriters did such a hot job. I had the impression that they didn't sit down and talk extensively with the jurors, but maybe did this via letter or email. I may be wrong.

    HOWEVER, that didn't bother me a bit. I became interested in the case after reading Anne Bird's book and then Sharon Rocha's book. Both of those books gave me the impression--all the way through---that an innocent man may have been convicted for killing Laci. I just didn't agree with the reasons each author gave for believing he did it, and also found the authors' own behavior odd as they themselves described it. So, to go to the heart of the matter, I read what the jury had to say. And you should too.

    The reasons they give for convicting Scott are the most interesting part of the book. One juror said, after he got into the boat in the now-infamous boat-rocking incident (which may lead to a new trial for Peterson) that the boat looked neglected and that he took that to mean Peterson was "abusing the boat." The truth about that is the boat was in police custody for two years prior to the jurors viewing it, and the neglect did not occur at the hands of the defendant. Another juror felt the expert witness, the sturgeon fisherman, convinced him that Scott did it, because the fisherman declared he would have no problem hoisting a 150-pound body over the edge of the 14-foot boat while floating in the bay. That same juror declared that Amber Frey's tape-recorded police spy act was what pushed the jurors to condemn Peterson to death. No one seemed to believe Amber Frey was a motive, however, for the killing. The tapes just made the jury mad.

    Also fascinating is the process by which three jurors were removed from the case, and you get the jurors' perspectives on this. Anyone interested further in why jurors were removed should look up the Defense Motion For A New Trial--it is available online and contains interviews with all of the jurors about the first juror to be removed, Justin Falconer. Falconer was accused of misconduct, but only by one other juror, no.8, and during the interviews in chambers with the judge, it turned out that none of the other jurors agreed that Falconer was stepping over the line. The judge removed Falconer anyway.

    Juror no. 8 gave his story about the ousting of the second juror, Fran Gorman, to the San Francisco Chronicle (and also in this book). Turns out Gorman had looked something up online, a big no-no. But Gorman's question that she looked up went to innocence, and Gorman was the one person who supported Gregory Jackson, a not-guilty, as foreman of the jury. They had a vote. Juror no. 8 wanted to get rid of Jackson as foreman. Gorman's and Jackson's own votes made the difference and kept him in the position. Juror 8, whose note had prompted the judge to dismiss Falconer, went to work on getting Gorman removed. He succeeded. Jackson was then voted out as foreman.

    Jackson subsequently asked to be let off the jury and told the judge he felt threatened by another juror. He refused to say who, but it's clear from the book (and from Juror 8's interviews with press) that it was J. 8, a Teamster who also happened to be a very large and aggressive man who also told the judge he was frustrated because he could not "get physica

    We, the Jury: Deciding the Scott Peterson Case

    This book portrayed seven of the high profile jurors of the Scott Peterson Trial in such a way, I was speechless. As I read the book, I felt as if I was one of them. That is how descriptive and interesting it was to have seven views on one subject. It is definitely a must read!

    Stone Cold Boring

    This is one of the most poorly written books I have ever read. There is no real new or revealing information than you may have already read in other, better books about this subject. What there is is told in a repetetive form from the first page to the very last.It is as if you are reading a magazine article that begins again with each new chapter. Not worth the time it took to read it.

    a revelatory and illuminating compendium

    Absorbing as well as revelatory,this book offers a rare look into the hearts and minds of 7 men and women immersed in this capital murder trial. Most compelling are the sec-tions which shed light on the dramatic and, in some cases, life -altering effects of such an experience on these people. Swertlow and Stambler have created a valuable reference here for lawyers and potential jurors.

    The jurors needed a psychologist, not help writing a book.

    It was hard to warm up to the seven jurors involved in writing this book. You could tell the whole process weighed heavily on them, but all in all, it seemed like these jurors wrote the book as a catharsis and for the money. The writing was uneven and definitely not the best book I've ever read.
