I am going to write a review of the book, which I did read all the way through, as best I can without getting into my personal feelings about Casey Anthony and Jose Baez. I read the book because after the trial, I still could not understand what actually happened to Caylee, and was hoping to get some new information. The book did not provide me with anything factual that could go towards answering my questions, however.

I have two major problems with the book: (1) Baez uses it as an opportunity to bash Jeff Ashton relentlessly, and arrogantly. He resents Ashton's behavior and characterizations of him, rightly so, and yet stoops to the same level. Baez states that he is a classy, talented lawyer, and yet dives right down into the worst behaviors himself. This made it difficult to read the book for content. (2) The book left many unanswered questions for me:

(a) the alleged sexual abuse. This was never proven, and never corroborated by anyone. Casey told several people that she had been groped by her adolescent brother, but never alleged any abuse by her father, when she had every opportunity and motive to do so, had it been true. In fact, in her jailhouse letter to Robin Adams, she says that she DOESN'T remember her father abusing her, only her brother, which consisted of touching her breasts. Baez, however, states that she told people of "the abuse", but he never says that she only mentioned her brother. Misleading at best, and amounts to falsehood about the abuse statements.

(b) the duct tape attached to the hair mat. I was not present at the trial and did not see the pictures, but in the coroner's report, it is stated that duct tape was attached to the hair mat, and had held the mandible attached to the skull.

I actually enjoyed this book, in a watching-a-train-wreck sort of way. However. For those of you who are short on time, let me give you a brief synopsis.
JOSE BAEZ: "The police were out to get me/ The prosecutor was out to get me/ Judge A was out to get me/ And then Judge B was out to get me too! Casey Anthony is a beautiful person. Besides: ha ha. I won."
Save yourself the time. Just don't bother.

I am kinda glad this book came out. It has not only flopped, but I also believe it has hurt the Anthony's and Casey's chances of getting a book published and for that I am grateful. The book is full of lies that are proven to be lies by court documents. This book has sunk so fast in the sales ranking. Readers that have an interest in reading non-fiction want just that a book based on facts. Rather than help to make him look genuine, the book has made Baez look bad. The mean spiteful way he discribes others in his book, while patting himself on the back, is unbelievable.
My thanks goes out to everyone that has went back and researched the court documents and posted the links to them right alsong side of exerpts from the book. It brings the truth to light.

Rather than go into a long review ... I'm going to pull a few choice quotes from Baez's novel to literally highlight the absurdity ...

1. 'She had two large bags of garbage in the car and it doesn't smell?'

-Yes, there was trash. Empty trash. Boxes and containers that were empty. Empty boxes don't smell like decomposing babies. Sorry.

2. '"Her daughter was missing, and she parties for thirty-one days." They knew it was improper. Worse, they knew it was BS. They didn't care.'

-Oh how we all wish it was BS ... but Casey DID party for thirty-one days as well as steal and lie and hide the truth. If we're dealing in FACTS (hence a NON-FICTION novel) let's deal in them shall we?

3. 'After she became pregnant, said Weitz, she never once considered having an abortion or putting the baby up for adoption."

-Again, incorrect. There was a chain of e-mails and text messages where Casey did offer her friend her unborn child. These are the fallacies of a rose-colored story ... this is putting lipstick on a pig.

4. "La Bella Vita" was actually a tribute to Caylee."

-Was it now? Because I don't see anything beautiful about only getting to live until your two, being murdered, wrapped up in a trash bag and being thrown away in the woods like trash.

5. "Not only did Casey tell me she was sexually abused by her father, but there was plenty of other evidence she had told other people about that abuse."

-Have we forgotten that Ms. Anthony is a raging, pathological liar? I mean, countless times Baez leans on that as an "excuse" -- oh poor Casey, she is so screwed up, so mentally wounded, she HAS to lie ...

I read the 140 sample pages. The overall impression I get is that Baez is just so, so, so proud of himself and he thinks he's a big star. Baez is so morally deluded and occupied with tooting his horn that he completely overlooks the numerous contradictions he's made throughout his book.

In 2008: Baez preached "Caylee is alive, she is out there and we need to find her. The police are concentrating on the wrong things."

Now: The cops should have immediately realized Casey Anthony was not playing with a full deck and done...what? Stopped questioning her about her missing child? Sent her to one of the mental health experts who DID IN FACT EXAMINE HER and found her perfectly fit to stand trial? He shows absolutely no regard for human life and ignores the rights of Caylee Marie Anthony. Caylee had the right to live and the right to be buried respectfully as a human being and not left in the woods to be chewed up by animals. He also ignores her right to be found during an investigation that her OWN MOTHER obstructed for her own selfish reasons.

I take issue with Baez thinking his personal opinion of Casey's mental health overrides those of the numerous experts who examined Casey Anthony before and even DURING the trial to ascertain her mental health. Baez is as crappy of a psychiatrist as he is a lawyer. What he should have included in his book would be what that mental health analysis taken during the trial indicates.

In 2008 Baez was moseying around with a birthday card Jesse Grund sent Caylee, showing it to anyone and everyone who walks by and commenting on how creepy it is. Much LIKE CASEY ANTHONY HERSELF, He completely ignores George as any sort of person of interest at this point.
