Publisher's Summary

The trial of 25-year-old Casey Anthony for the death of her daughter, Caylee, was the most sensational case in America since O.J. Simpson’s—with a verdict every bit as stunning. After being acquitted in July 2011, Ms. Anthony instantly became one of the most infamous women in the world.

Dr. Keith Ablow distills tens of thousands of pages of documents he has obtained, his behind-the-camera, one-on one interviews, and his decades of experience in the world of forensic psychiatry to make sense of a woman whose defense attorney described her as an innocent victim of childhood sexual abuse, but the state insisted was a cold-blooded murderer.

Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony delivers an incisive, riveting way of understanding this troubled young woman.

    "Interesting take on Casey' mental health."

    I have to agree with the other reviews this "DR" was obsessed w Casey's lady parts. I don't agree with how he placed all blame with George and Cindy.

    They could have put Casey out of their home when they found out she was pregnant. They obviously enjoyed their grand daughter very much. Having another mouth to feed in a home where the budget was already stressed, had to make things that much more difficult. DR Ablow didn't really get into the psychology of why the Anthonys who obviously knew Casey never worked chose to look the other way. Beyond saying Casey would take Caylee away. Where would she have gone? She never supported herself.
    Casey is indeed a pathological liar why the author would continue to think Casey was telling the truth about the molestation and continue ad nauseam to being it up almost caused me to stop listening to the book.
    I wouldn't waste a credit on this book. I don't recommend.

    "Thought provoking"

    Ablow takes the reader into the home of the Anthony'a and gives a very in depth look at the psychopathology of Casey and her family. The book takes the reader successfully beyond the headlines and he provides a detailed reading and analysis of the tapes and records and transcripts, interviewing a few people that are interesting to hear. However, he totally overdetermines the cause of Casey's criminal behavior and sociopathology by blaming her parents. Casey, by his own account, is a master liar yet he totally takes as as fact her claim, totally unsubstantiated, that her father molested her and forced her to perform oral sex on him as a child. This should be one theory, not a determining factor, taken as fact. And, yes, his portrait of Cindy, the mother, as the over controlling mother is fascinating and convincing, but this reader couldn't help but wonder if a lot of this controlling behavior and denial was not the cause of Casey's sickness, but the result of trying to live with a daughter who was, from an early age, a manipulative liar --a sociopath.

    "Blame the mother!"
    Any additional comments?

    It was a good read, but the author's demonization of Casey's parents got unbearable after a while. What to expect of a psychiatrist... of course he blame it all on the mother (in this case, Cindy Anthony). Anyway, that aside, I was able to understand Casey's behaviors and crazy lies a little better.

    Story
    "One Word: INSANE"
    Would you listen to Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony again? Why?

    I was able to paint of foggy picture of inside Casey's head even though I was so lost. I loved LOVED how insane crazy she is made out to be. I read another book told by the prosecutor and it was a little different. I can normally put myself in someones head very well but with Casey I think the book was designed for you to completely run off the cliff at full speed.

    Her dad was made out to be COMPLETELY different than what I have ever heard, and I was one of the people who tunes in to every interview while the case was happening. Rather it's true or not it makes the case way more interesting.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The narrator was easy to listen to and didn't distract me from the details of the book.


    Have you listened to any of Henry Leyva’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. I would listen again though, for sure.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You have NO idea.


    Any additional comments?

    I am completely grounded by this book.

    "Assumptions Galore"

    This book makes wild assumptions in Casey Anthony's favour, without really knowing what went on in that family. He was going on what was available on the public record.
    He is very harsh on the family, it has never been proven in a court of law that George or his son ever abused Casey, and if that was the case why on earth would she allow her daughter to be placed in this home.
    Not all individuals have perfect childhoods and they don't go on to kill their children.

    I attended the Casey Anthony trial last year and I can tell you this book was great - I thought I knew most everything since I have been following the case since it began but this book was great! A MUST listen!

    "Changed the way I felt about Casey Anthony"
    Where does Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I highly recommend.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The insight in Casey's life and especially Cindy's well documented behavior was incredibly interesting and made me understand Casey.


    If you could give Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony a new subtitle, what would it be?

    The history of CMA that killed the future of CMA


    Any additional comments?

    Don't be surprised if you have a slightly different take on Casey, Americas most hated woman, after reading this book. At the very least, I understood Casey and truly began to feel sympathy for her while hoping she can recover and get the help she so needs before she has another child.
