NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe inspiration for American Crime Story: The People v. O. J. Simpson on FX, starring Cuba Gooding, Jr., John Travolta, David Schwimmer, and Connie Britton 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." Rich in character, as propulsive as a legal thriller, this enduring narrative continues to shock and fascinate with its candid depiction of the human drama that upended American life. Praise for The Run of His Life "This is the book to read."—Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times "This book stands out as a gripping and colorful account of the crime and trial that captured the world's attention."—Boston Sunday Globe "A real page-turner . . . strips away the months of circuslike televised proceedings and the sordid tell-all books and lays out a simple, but devastating, synopsis of the case."—Entertainment Weekly "A well-written, profoundly rational analysis of the trial and, more specifically, the lawyers who conducted it."—USA Today "Engrossing . . . Toobin's insight into the motives and mind-set of key players sets this Simpson book apart from the pack."—People (one of the top ten books of the year)From the Hardcover edition.

Jeffrey Toobin strarted covering the O.J. Simpson trial (the so-called trial of the century) for "The New Yorker," which led to this book, originally published in 1996. Thanks to the recent "American Crime Story" series based on the the book, I imagine this will be widely read again. It's a thorough, well-researched, and sober account of a polarizing trial that could've benefited from being a little shorter. The series was mores sympathetic to the prosecution team than Toobin, a former lawyer, is in his account. Toobin's also written about the Supreme Court and Patty Hearst.
