Publisher's Summary

In 1994, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson were brutally murdered at her home in Brentwood, California. O. J. Simpson was tried for the crime in a case that captured the attention of the American people, but he was ultimately found not guilty of criminal charges. The victims' families brought civil cases against Simpson, in which he was found liable for willfully and wrongfully causing the deaths of Ron and Nicole by committing battery with malice and oppression.

In 2006, HarperCollins announced the publication of a book in which O. J. Simpson told how he hypothetically would have committed the murders. In response to public outrage that Simpson stood to profit from these crimes, HarperCollins canceled the book. A Florida bankruptcy court awarded the rights to the Goldmans in August 2007 to partially satisfy the unpaid civil judgment, which has risen, with interest, to over $38 million.

The Goldman family views this book as Simpson's confession, and has worked hard to ensure that the public will read or listen to this book and learn the truth. This audiobook was produced from the original manuscript approved by O. J. Simpson, with additional insight from the Goldman Family, Pablo F. Fenjves, and Dominick Dunne.

    "O.J. SPEAKS!!"

    I was hesitant to get this book because I don't agree with the Goldman family profiting from it, however, I couldn't resist. The narrator was absolutely wonderful! He "became" O.J. both in sound and temperment. My feelings about the outcomes of both the criminal and civil trials weren't changed at all.
    The book IS a bit one-sided, but that's because it is from O.J.'s perspective. There are other books that skew to Nicole's side...the truth lies somewhere between the two (we'll never truly know).

    The introductory "thanks" were annoying!! Just start the story already!!

    I would definitely recommend this book. No matter how you feel about the trials, the fact still remains--two people were shamelessly murdered--here's a look into the "innocent" or "guilty" O.J. Simpson's mind.

    "True OJ"

    First I applaude the Goldman family for making sure OJ didn't profit from this very slanted version of what happened in Brentwood California in 1994. He isn't someone prone to taking the blame for his own actions and tried to direct all the problems in their relationship to her door. It's funny how innocent he still wants everyone to think he is, even after admitting he killed them both. Its the classic, she sleeps around she's an unfit mother, he sleeps around and he is a handsome stud. He made fun of Nicole for needing to understand herself and he states rather proudly how all eyes are riveted on him as he enters a room. The guy's ego is almost unbelievable. I think this part of his personality makes all the pieces fall in place. Someone with an ego like his would find it hard to allow Nicole to walk away. Someone with his ego wouldn't want to loose the adulation of the public by going to jail so he puts a gun to his head and goes on a slow Bronco ride as people line up and cheer him on. Seeing signs urging him to run probably made him think, hey, I just might get away with this. And only someone with the EGO of OJ would think he could write a book and make everyone believe he was this great guy who did everything for his family and was somehow forced to kill his ex-wife and an innocent young man who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Outstanding narration! Guy sounded just like OJ.

    "Chilling"

    This book is a must listen for anyone who has interest in this tragic double murder. I've never doubted Simpson's clear guilt and this book only reinforced what I already knew. Simpson is a narcissistic sociopath who finally confesses to this brutal crime and calls it "hypothetical". The chapter covering that tragic night is absolutely chilling to listen to while the chapters before it and after it just reinforce that this man has a sociopathic psyche. That chapter practically puts you there at the time of the double murder and Simpson describes the entire event in a way only someone who was THERE could... such shocking detail, revealing things only the killer could know.

    It is a sad and tragic event to relive but this is a necessary listen for those who have any interest in this crime or have any doubts about Simpson's guilt.

    "If I did it"

    I applaud the Goldman's for putting this book out there, I would never have bought it if O.J. was getting any of the proceeds. The book is only interesting because it is a confession of sorts, most of his drivel is typical O.J. taking no responsibility for anything. Interesting how he can't make Nicole or Ronald look bad no matter how hard he tries. Sad to realize that those two wonderful people are no longer here to grace our earth.

    "The system finally gets OJ!"

    but, you cannot blame the system. You can only blame him. He kept putting itself in the way of the system until it finally ran him down!

    Idiot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Good listen though for a Sunday afternoon.

    "IF I Did It."

    If the Goldmans were trying to help their cause this book didn't help much. First of all I was so tired of all the thank yous and so on and so forths I almost got sick. I almost didn't listen to the book they were that long. If I didn't know all that I did about OJ's trial I would say there might be some doubt, but of course that's not the case. Any way I would not recomend this book.

    "Can you say narcissistic?"

    The main thing this book does is show how incredibly narcissistic OJ is. Good on the Goldman family for using his own words to show his true colors.

    If you're looking for a description of the murder, he kind of blacks out during that part. It's mainly about how he views his relationship with Nicole.

    Story
    "One For The Goldmans"
    What did you love best about If I Did It?

    There's not a lot to love about a person getting away with murder. I never would have read this book if even one cent of the proceeds went to Simpson, but I applaud the Goldmans for their perseverence in going after the murderer in any way possible. They have been criticized for trying to capitalize on Ron's murder, but they make it clear that their intent is not monetary gain, but to expose Simpson for what he really is and what he did. God bless you, Goldman family. I'm behind you 100%.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting aspect of this story is that Simpson is trying to manipulate the reader into seeing how superior, wonderful and grand he is. He only succeeds in revealing how sick he is. Those who can't see past his glory days on the gridiron need to read this book and get a good look into the depraved mind of the person you admire.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Simpson turned against his ghost writer when he revealed too much and tried to blame him for making it up. You got the sense that Arrogant Simpson wanted brag that he got away with murder, but Celebrity Simpson worried about damage to his public image. Never at any time, though, did he express even a moment of remorse. He was good at blame, though. Always blaming everything on Nicole.


    If you could give If I Did It a new subtitle, what would it be?

    I'm O.J. Simpson. Enough said.


    Any additional comments?

    Publicly, he was bigger than life. Privately, he was a horrid little man.

    "OMG Painfull!!"

    Wow, this is the most PAINFULL dribble I have ever listened to ( or read for that matter) This is an obvious "blame the victim" story by a narcissitic killer.
