Casey Anthony book on the way

We knew the book deals were coming eventually.

According to the New York Times, St. Martin’s Press has lined up a book about Casey Anthony, who last week was found not guilty of murder in the 2008 death of her 2-year-old daughter.

Written by forensic psychiatrist Keith Ablow, “Inside the Mind of Casey Anthony” will offer a “cogent, comprehensible way of understanding exactly how Casey Anthony’s psyche may have developed and how her psychological development and the dynamics within her family ended the life of Caylee Anthony,” a spokesperson for the publisher says in a statement.

“Whether readers liked or hated the jury’s verdict, Dr. Ablow will answer the question, Why is Caylee Anthony dead?” the statement continues.

The book is expected to arrive soon, as the publisher is said to be rushing the text to print this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    What the *** are you going on about fish, and chocolate, and Nancy Grace? You do not even make any sense in your argument. What is your point? What is a 8gger? I am not fat either 95 pounds.

    NG has been a long time advocate for those that have had been victims of crime. To wish death to her is immature.
    Boycott any blood money that comes from the fruit of this poisionous shrub. the only thing she needs is prayers
    I would not try to be one of her sperm donors fellas, exciting as that sounds for you IMHO she is pending toxic on many levels. .

    Little Caylee was singing on the video, please don't take my sunshine away " We the people know that her mom took her sunshine away. Please everyone lets boycott any show or book deal that casey can profit from. We know if any deal be given to her; It would be about tv. ratings and greed. NOT JUSTICE FOR LITTLE CAYLEE. We can stick together on this. THAN WE WILL WIN'

  4. Another pending failure.

    I think there's a single TROLL going up and down this page yelling "boycott" and it's sooo annoying. People won't buy the book because they can just go online and read blogs by forensic phychiatrists on the case. They aren't going to spend $20 or more on the book (rushed out by publishers).

    Right now, some forensic phsychiatrists could write books on the topic and self-publish it on Kindle Direct Publishing by Amazon and have it up in a matter of days and charge $2.99 for it or even $.99 cents and sell in bulk.

    I will not buy anything associated with this case, no one should profit from the death of a child. I hope that the Caylee's Law gets passed nationwide, and that "what goes around, comes around" for the perpetrator.

    I will not buy anything about this baby killer. She many change her nane and disguise herself but her ugly
    mouth and ears will give her away. By the time she gets drunk from partying she will spout how she got
    away with murder. She is a liar and a horrible human being who needs attention.
    Casey will never make any money off of me. She might as well crawl under a rock.

    She is NOT beautiful, inside or out. She looks like a horse-all those huge teeth, the long face-and the inside has got to be so ugly. I am not fat, and certainly not jealous of any one who would kill a child, so take it back, weirdo. Not guilty? Would you let her babysit your small child? She will be needing a new sucker for a boyfriend, As she has no skills and has never had a job, so get in line all you silly men who think she is "hot". I wish you all the luck if that is the kind of woman you want-you deserve it. Oh, and bring money. She is and always has been, For Sale. The rest of us will Boycott anything with her name on it and let her end up in the gutter she belongs in. No, a bad person is not necessarily a child killer, but Caylee is dead because she is a bad person.

    no one will ever buy tthis book after watching this on tv for the past 3 year's no one will ever believe the reason someone else gives regarding the muder of casey anothony. casey is the only one who knows the truth about what she did but she lies to much to ever tell the truth she would just blame it on her parents. so with this being said boycott all books,movies from anyone trying to profit off of caylee marie anothonoys death this is just plain worong to do this book knowing the situation here. given the chance to buy the book amercia will not buy this book no matter what you write. everyone is smart enough to know everyone has their own opinion regarding the case as whole so with that being said america hates casey anothony and wont ever buy this book. you will lose more money publishing this book

    Nancy Grace could single-handedly destroy a 200-plus year old legal system with her venomous, obsessive, compulsive rants on this tragedy, night, after night, after night. If you want to stop any profiting on this tragedy, shut your TV's off, take your kids to the park, go to the beach, take a vacation, anything, ANYTHING, but continue to contribute to the ratings, and pocketbooks of media VULTURES like NANCY GRACE ET AL!

    One of the biggest profiteers of Caylee's death is NANCY GRACE, and now her psychopathic nightly rages are bringing in more bucks for her, while she defiles anyone who would even think of making a dollar of a small murdered child.

    BOYCOTT any media who continue to dominate the airways with this story every single second of the day.

    Let's all forget Casey Anthony ever existed.....stop thinking about her, talking about her, don't consider finding anything out about her... if you end up standing next to her on the street look right through her.... She is walking in the shadow of her dead child for the rest of her days on this earth... and she know's in her heart she is responsible....Let her live with that in her own solitary lonely world until her day of judgement comes. She doesn't deserve an once more of our attention or curiosity. And by all means she and everyone and anyone who wants to profit from her should be boycotted at all costs from now until the end of time!

      I'm with "John Blaster," I hope no one BUYS the tripe and that every publisher who tries to make money off this story loses their shirt and possibly their jobs (just as OJ's publisher did). I will not be buying any product, not Cindy's book (which she was feverishly working on as the trial went on), not George's if he writes one, not even Jeff Ashton. (Why didn't they charge her with obstruction of justice??? Isn't that a felony?)

      And I certainly won't be buying any of the countless lies that Horseface will no doubt continue to tell, just as she did in her legal defense. Had she actually told the truth even in her defense, she would have been able to take the stand. Even those who defend her knows she's a liar.

      And I'm going to STOP, now, following the CNN stories that continue to exploit this tragedy. It's just as bad as buying a book by any of them.
