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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Ugh. Could the author get out of his own way??"
    What disappointed you about Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony?

    The fact that Ablow kept inserting himself into the story - I found it incredibly selfish and grating. In addition, he repeats phrases over and over (particularly about the viewing of Casey's natural childbirth - it's repeated so often that I could picture people performing a drinking game for every time Ablow mentions it. I don't recommend that - someone might slip into a coma with all the repetition.)


    What could Keith Ablow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Remove all references on how he'd speak with the police investigators that interviewed her - his unnecessary interruptions and need to shuck and jive about how he would handle the situation was incredibly disruptive to the scene. I found him obnoxious. Hey Ablow - this isn't about you, okay??


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought that he had an effective performance style as a narrator.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The beginning, detailing exactly what "emotional smothering" means and the details behind the history of the Anthony's was interesting.
