Presumed Guilty exposes shocking, never-before revealed, exclusive information from the trial of the century and the verdict that shocked the nation.
When Caylee Anthony was reported missing in Orlando, Florida, in July 2008, the public spent the next three years following the investigation and the eventual trial of her mother, Casey Anthony. On July 5, 2011, the case that captured headlines worldwide exploded when, against all odds, defense attorney Jose Baez delivered one of the biggest legal upsets in American history: a not-guilty verdict.
In this tell-all, Baez shares secrets the defense knew but has not disclosed to anyone until now and frankly reveals his experiences throughout the entire case--discovering the evidence, meeting Casey Anthony for the first time, being with George and Cindy Anthony day after day, leading defense strategy meetings, and spending weeks in the judge's chambers.
Presumed Guilty shows how Baez, a struggling, high-school dropout, became one of the nation's most high-profile defense attorneys through his tireless efforts to seek justice for one of the country's most vilified murder suspects.

1 . The Underdog Story of the Century
Posted August 23, 2012 by Samantha , Sherwood ParkJose Baez, along with Peter Golenblock, answers many of the questions left after Casey Anthony was found not guilty of the murder of her daughter. While the public was fueled by gossip and lies, Jose Baez worked behind the scenes to find the truth. He couldn't have had a more uphill battle. In this well-written and fascinating book, he tells the story of how he came to defend "the most hated woman in America". Despite a biased judge, a bullying assistant prosecutor, a pitchfork-wielding public, the enabling of an alleged sexual abuser and a wealth of made-up evidence, Jose Baez managed to raise enough doubt in the minds of 12 average citizens so that justice could prevail.
2 . So much we did not know!
Posted July 21, 2012 by Shelly , Windsor, Ontario CanadaI have to admit that I followed this case every waking hour that I was not working and had so many many conflicting feelings and opinions on what really happened and also what truth was being told by the media. The sensationalism by the media was what disturbed me the most, as the important and only thing that should be first and foremost is what happened to Caylee and is Casey guilty or not. I did read Imperfect Justice and since I heard that Jose was coming out with a book, I could not wait to hear the other side before I made any firm opinion. Well I would like to say that this book was far far more informative and not all about egos, but just the facts. It was an extremely interesting and honest account of the things that went on behind the scenes that the media did not make public. That is what I found to be most interesting in this book along with the honesty in which Jose stated the facts. Excellent read and my hat goes off to Jose.....
