Audio Book Summary

The shocking tale told in How I Helped O. J. Get Away With Murder is unlike anything you've read before; it isn't Mike Gilbert's 'version' of what happened-it's the unvarnished truth: the truth about O. J., the murders, and the infamous trial. Not as Gilbert imagined or would like it to be, but how it actually was. Gilbert doesn't spare anyone, not even himself-he helped deceive the jury and feels deeply responsible for the 'Not Guilty' verdict.

So why is Gilbert speaking out now? Has he gone from sinner to saint? Is he making a play for sympathy or looking to make a quick buck? No. (Proceeds from this book are going to March of Dimes and other selected charities.) Gilbert has written this book because he regrets what he did for his adored childhood idol. He can no longer find any excuse for how he has shielded O. J. Simpson, and he is determined to tell the full truth, including:

-O. J.'s late-night confession to Gilbert

-How Gilbert was responsible for O. J.'s hand not fitting the murder glove

-Why O. J. murdered Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman (it was more than jealousy)

-Why Gilbert defended O. J. for so long-and what finally convinced him he could do so no longer

- How O. J. ignored his financial obligations to the Goldman family and milked the tabloids for money

-The real reason why an armed O. J. burst in on the memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas (Gilbert had what O. J. was looking for)

Told with searing candor, no one comes out of this book with his reputation intact-including Gilbert's own. But he casts a glaring light on how celebrity can corrupt, how power can mislead, and how friendship and loyalty can be perverted. His book is meant to set the record straight, to lay to rest the ghosts of that dreadful night that have haunted him ever since, and to now play what little part he can to forward the process of justice.

    This is a VERY informative book for anyone who was interested in the O J trial, etc. I always believed he was guilty and this book explains why he was acquitted. Now I need to read his If I Did It...

    A detailed account of the volitale relationship between OJ and Nicole. This book put the pieces together and gives you a good picture of what really happened. (How and why he killed her). Money and the allure of celebrity were the factors that drove people surrounding OJ to help him get away with the crime. After it was all said and done OJ never regretted and never accepted responsibility for it.

    The narrator was extremely monotone and hard to listen to but the book was interesting.

    Outstanding depiction from someone so close to OJ !! While working in the NYS court system during the trial I always remember back then that I knew he was guilty and that the evidence was overwhelming! Congrats Mr Gilbert for showing some respect to the Brown and Goldman families. Can’t wait to read OJ ‘s If I did It !!

    Liked the book but hated all the "F" bombs. Could of done without hearing the swearing. If you wanted clarity of the story this is the book for you. Amazing how much people will lie cheat and steal for fame and fortune of a person and even how they will corrupt themselves for unhealthy relationships. Personal thoughts if this what it takes to be poor then I would rather die broke. It was truly informative and interesting he did a good job piecing together his story and view point

    The. narrator was a bit hard to listen to and as much as the author said he wasn’t going to make excuses sure seemed like he did. Felt like a money grab book.

    Very informative if you are interested in OJ as a person, and everything that happened leading up to and after the trial (as far as his personal life). Of course, it is a tragic story. And though it was interesting, I don't know if I'm any better off knowing any of this. But on the off chance any of his children ever read this review (children from first or second marriage) I do want to say this: I know you are grown, but I want to speak to your inner child. I'm so sorry this happened to you. None of this was your fault. Your Father in Heaven is not flawed like us, humans. He took the violence of this sinful earth upon himself to shield you from it. Death is HIS enemy (1 Cor. 15:26) and he promises that soon death itself will be finally and completely defeated. He has good plans for you (Jeremiah 29:11), and he wants you to heal and be happy. If you still love and forgive your earthly father, that is beautiful and good (God loves him and forgives him too). If you don't forgive him and can't love him, that's okay too. YOU ARE BELOVED. And nothing will ever change that. Again, beloveds, I'm so so sorry this happened to you... That is what this book made me want to say. God bless you. Numbers 6:24-26
