This is a very interesting look into how Kim Goldman really is. She seems like a great lady and I have so much respect for her, especially after reading her story. We all think we know her after seeing her all over the tv during and after the Simpson trial, but her book gives us a look into her life and experience of losing her brother to murder. I'm so glad I read this and recommend others to do the same as you might be surprised at how you can relate to her in unexpected ways.

I remember the day the not-guilty verdict came down vividly, watching Kim Goldman throw her head into her hands sobbing with grief. I can't imagine what it would be like to lose a sibling so violently and in such a public way. What I was struck by then, and now, is how Kim carried and continues to carry herself with such poise, despite the horror that she's lived through. This book gives insight into all the tragedy in Kim's early life that have made her the woman she is today: a victims rights advocate, a mother, a friend, a strong woman with sage words and a sense of humor. After reading this book, I am inspired by her never-ending fight for justice.

I didn't know what to expect, when I downloaded this book; assumed it would be a rehash of trial stuff, but it wasn't. Learned a lot about Kim growing up - about her dad, brother, and her current life. I couldn't stop reading it - felt like we were old buddies, just chatting over coffee. I appreciated her honesty, and I learned so much about grief, and healing and coping with tragedies. Strange to feel a sense of pride when I finished reading, but I did. God Speed Kim.

This is a very interesting book. I did not follow the trial when it occurred, i'm glad the book is more than just a rehash of those events. I learned a lot about Kim and her family. There is so much more to her that we never really knew. I appreciated her honesty and ability to reveal herself.
She is inspiring in how she balances everything in her life, continuing to work in non-profit, victim advocacy, mother, writer, etc, etc.

Highly recommend!

Great read. Good insight of how hard it is to lose a sibling. Especially when the whole world is watching. I was always curious how Kim really did handle this tragic loss and who she was. I liked that she wrote about her upbringing good and not so good.

I have never lost anyone, so I am not sure I can comprehend the concept of forgiving someone - but I really appreciated Kim's honest approach towards her life and her son. I didn't know much about her before (other than the news, of course), made me sad to hear some of the stories of her past, but the relationship with her brother, her dad and Sam, seems to have helped her a lot and that made me smile by the end. I think this book would be helpful for my girlfriend, whose daughter was killed a few years ago. She struggles with the loss obviously, but a lot of what she feels on a day to day basis, Kim's speaks about in her book. Kim gave me a few pointers that I think will help, when my girlfriend is having a rough day too, so for that I say thank you! I would definitely tell my friends/family to buy it.

Why I bought this e-book:. I saw Kim and her Dad on TV earlier this summer, when the 20 year anniversary of the entire OJ/Trial situation was discussed on TV, etc. and was curious to learn more of how she's doing. So, I found this book on my kindle. I was happy to read about her and how she's been. However, the title of the book was quite misleading. I guess it was a good book, however, it didn't delve strongly into the "20 year battle" itself. It was a memoir of her life to date. I want Kim and her Dad to know I've thought of them through the years - (I grew up in Chicagoland and am just 2 years older than Ron Goldman, and went to a rival hs of his and am familiar with the area they grew up in Chicago) - as have others I'm sure, and am so glad they were able to move on and live to enjoy a new child/grandchild, etc. They are very strong people, and I'm so sorry for their loss.
