Presumed Guilty exposes shocking, never-before-revealed, exclusive information from the trial of the century and the verdict that shocked the nation.
When Caylee Anthony was reported missing in Orlando, Florida, in July 2008, the public spent the next three years following the investigation and the eventual trial of her mother, Casey Anthony. On July 5, 2011, the case that captured headlines worldwide exploded when, against all odds, defense attorney Jose Baez delivered one of the biggest legal upsets in American history: a not-guilty verdict.
In this tell-all, Baez shares secrets the defense knew but has not disclosed to anyone until now, and frankly reveals his experiences throughout the entire case - discovering the evidence, meeting Casey Anthony for the first time, being with George and Cindy Anthony day after day, leading defense strategy meetings, and spending weeks in the judge’s chambers.
Presumed Guilty shows how Baez, a struggling, high school dropout, became one of the nation’s most high-profile defense attorneys through his tireless efforts to seek justice for one of the country’s most vilified murder suspects.

I love true history books. Many about people and their lives. Also memoirs are great
That the only point of the book was to whine about how a crap lawyer, who got LUCKY with one high profile case. For Gods sake, it took him 8 YEARS to pass the bar!! I would say he got incredibly lucky with a stupid jury and a murdering client. Why the hell is ALL he wants to do is whine?? Maybe all's not candy and rainbows after getting that killer off. I'm not sure why I bought this book and I'm thinking I may not be able to finish it. He's just a crying, whining titty baby who needs to grow up AND go AWAY!!!
What a courageous. How sad that she ended up being a victim. Bless those that helped her and hopefully she's doing well. I see Caylee as being the best thing that has ever happened to Casey's. The only good thing in her life. I believe there was no way she would of ever hurt her angel. That was the only real true love in her life. Being a young mother with a difficult childhood my children are the best thing that ever happened to me. I feel for Casey losing her childhood and the loss of Casey's precious daughter.
it's nice to hear this story from the defense side as well as from a great attorney who obviously has a passion for representation in the process of justice.
I understand why she walked. A really good book. Went into detail and told the story well.
Everyone needs to read or hear this.
Informative, well written, easy listening
The book was very good, and hard to put down. I started this book after reading Jeff Ashton's book on the case. At the time of trial, I shared the thought with many of my friends that she was guilty. After hearing this book, I understand why the jury found her not guilty.
His voice reminded me of the Author's voice. Easy to listen to.
It absolutely was-I listened at work, in my car and at home.
I recommend the book if you watched the trial.
I thought this was great! I previously listened to Ashton's book and thought that This book was so much more detailed than Ashton's and actually makes me question what I thought about this case.
It's my favorite and I would listen to it again.
I'm not sure, I haven't found one as good.
You think you know, but you have no idea!
I loved this book because it wasn't one sided. Even though it was written by Casey's attorney it made everything more clear for me. I've always been on her side and never thought she was guilty. I do believe she knew more than she told but I don't think she killed her own daughter. I don't think anyone killed her on purpose. This book will change the opinion of even the most closed-minded person who thinks they know 100% for a fact that Casey is guilty... ok maybe not the most closed-minded person ... there are a lot of fools in this world that refuse to believe anything that makes any kind of sense.

The narrator was fine.
No new information, except that Jose Baez is a bit up himself.
I much preferred the book by the prosecutor.
I followed this this story and trial so the book was only a natural step for me. I was pleasantly surprised at the new information presented. I found things about Jose Baez I did not know. I think everyone deserves a chance to be heard and defended, even zealously defended if their attorney is so inclined. After reading this book, you will understand the need for such a defense maybe a little better. If your mind is totally closed on this case, maybe you will at least have respect for an attorney who believed in the responsibility of his job and the commitment to his client.
The book is an easy listen.
The only complaint is the narrator's voice is a little odd sounding since most of us have Jose Baez's voice in our head from the trial. I think there could have been a better choice made.
