I preferred books by those who participated in the trial.

Interesting. You prefer books by people who likely felt a need to attempt to defend what they did during the trial rather than a book by an outside observer with no ox to gore. I haven't read any of their books.

It might be worth checking some of them out though to see what happened from their own personal point of view. Bugliosi provided an objective view of the proceedings from an outsider's viewpoint but also the viewpoint of one of the best prosecutors in the history of California as well as one of the better defense lawyers when he decided to switch sides.

His book is full of inside information also. He had access to lots of evidence including Simpson's conversation with detectives soon after the murders. And of course he had access to the trial transcript and probably the TV broadcast of the trial so it wasn't as if he was just pontificating about what happened based on hearsay.

To put it mildly the book is not a dry or dull commentary about the trial or the ridiculous verdict. About the only thing I disagree with him about is his implication that a better prosecution could have gotten a guilty verdict from that jury. You couldn't have gotten a guilty verdict from that jury with a video showing Simpson committing the murders.
