Controversial O.J. Simpson Book “If I Did It” Resurfaces Following His Death

The recent passing of O.J. Simpson has reignited interest in his highly controversial 2007 book, “If I Did It.” Originally released as a hypothetical account of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, the book has resurfaced in the wake of Simpson’s death. HarperCollins initially published the book, but it was later canceled due to public outrage. However, the rights to “If I Did It” were eventually awarded to the Goldman family, who republished it with the subtitle, “Confessions of the Killer.”

The new edition of the book, currently available online, includes additional commentary from key individuals involved in the case, such as writer Pablo Fenjves, who was revealed to be Simpson’s ghostwriter. The Goldman family also contributed new essays, shedding light on the original trial, civil trial, and Simpson’s subsequent conviction. A judge ruled that all royalties from the book’s sales should be awarded to the Goldman family.

The Goldman family considers the book to be Simpson’s confession and has made significant efforts to ensure its widespread readership. The republished version features up to 14,000 words of additional commentary from those whose lives were forever impacted by the heinous crime.

O.J. Simpson, a former NFL star and Football Hall of Famer, passed away on April 10 at the age of 76 after a private battle with cancer, as confirmed by his family.

For those interested in reading “If I Did It,” the book is available as a 240-page paperback on platforms like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Additionally, an audiobook version is accessible through Audible, narrated by Pablo Fenjves and Kim Goldman, Ron Goldman’s sister. Audible offers a 30-day free trial, allowing readers to listen to the audiobook online without charge.
