Also per the link, Caylee's father is alive.

Will you read the book?

If she's a liar in person, who thinks she will say anything truthful in a book?
I would not read it.

what on earth could anyone expect to read in this book?

I mean seriously, what could Casey Anthony say that would mean anything at all? Her two basic options are to a) spin more lies, or b) admit her knowledge of and/or role in Caylee's death.

Either one should **** off anyone with more than 2 brain cells.

Who would spend their money on this drivel?

Amazing. You know I've always been one of those "innocent until proven guilty people" and I still go by that, but that kind of cash advance for someone whose probably never even written anything before? Seems kind of wrong. Maybe it's just me...

I didn't read Greenspan's book because he didn't write it and I'm sure that there is nothing of value, nothing controversial and nothing interesting between the covers. Why participate in a publisher's payday and a royatly owner's retirement account for no reason?

Casey Anthony is a very poor communicator. She couldn't focus on her child, how can she focus on a book? She's not going to write it, it isn't going to be true and the entire text will be approved by a team of lawyers to prevent any sort of legal exposure. I would quite literally rather spend that time reading the manuals to the machinery in a paperclip factory. Some slick sees an opportunity to get you, along with hundreds of thousands of other people with varying levels of obsession over the fiasco that was the tot-mom trial, to toss twenty of your hard earned dollars into a giant pot thereby making some rich people that you have never seen or heard of even richer. They'll toss a couple of peanuts to Casey as well, of course, but her real money isn't going to manifest until she sells the rights to her sex tape. By then she'll be a little more savvy about negotiating royalties.

She's getting ripped off. She owns the intellectual property rights to a franchise that is worth hundreds of millions. She'll see a tiny fraction of that.

I, for one, will be sending a nasty gram to the publisher just as soon as they are identified. Not only will I not buy this book, I will not buy any other book they publish either.
ditto!

Same here. And no, I do not want to read her pack of lies. I hope identifying the (still alive) father backfires on this skank and he sues her civilly for Caylee's death like the Goldmans sued OJ.
