In this brave and moving memoir, Corey Feldman is revealing the truth about what his life was like behind the scenes: His is a past that included physical, drug, and sexual abuse, a dysfunctional family from which he was emancipated at age fifteen, three high-profile arrests for drug possession, a nine-month stint in rehab, and a long, slow crawl back to the top of the box office.

  • The Run of His Life

The definitive account of the O. J. Simpson trial, The Run of His Life is a prodigious feat of reporting that could have been written only by the foremost legal journalist of our time. First published less than a year after the infamous verdict, Jeffrey Toobin's nonfiction masterpiece tells the whole story, from the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman to the ruthless gamesmanship behind the scenes of "the trial of the century".

If you could sum up The Run of His Life in three words, what would they be?

The O.J. trial that you didn't see.

What did you like best about this story?

The detail

What aspect of Stephen Bel Davies’s performance would you have changed?

Not much

If you could give The Run of His Life a new subtitle, what would it be?

More than just O.J. are responsible for his guilt.

Any additional comments?

I remember once thinking that O.J. was innocent. After reading If I did It, I was convinced otherwise. This book also helps me realize that if it weren't for the poor performance of the prosecution, the blatant race baiting of Johnny Cochran, The past of the LAPD, and the behavior of Mark Furman, O.J. wold have been convicted and there would be no one regardless of color would have felt sorry for him, or remained unconvinced of his guilt.

  • The War for Late Night

  • When Leno Went Early and Television Went Crazy

When NBC decided to move Jay Leno into prime time to make room for Conan O'Brien to host the Tonight show - a job he had been promised five years earlier - skeptics anticipated a train wreck for the ages. It took, in fact, only a few months for the dire predictions to come true. Leno's show, panned by critics, dragged down the ratings - and the profits - of NBC's affiliates, while ratings for Conan's new Tonight show plummeted to the lowest levels in history.

It is clear that the narrator has little wrestling knowledge what with the constant mispronounced names. Author has a clear agenda, not sure if truth is one of them. Funny how he seems to alienate all of those whom he questions. Not bad, but you've heard it before.
