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.
