Behind the Words: A Logical and Satirical Guide to the Impossible Defense of Jodi Arias
When Jodi Arias brutally slaughtered her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in June, 2008, the story began. Most aspects of this case have been covered -- whether it was the pieced together description of their relationship or the psychology of a killer. What more is there to say? Well, as it turns out, there's plenty more to say. This book begins on the day that Jodi Arias took the witness stand in her own defense. It will begin with her attorney saying, "Hi, Jodi," and it will end at the close of court on the fourth day of her direct examination. At that point, she was accusing her victim of being a physical abuser and a pedophile. While there was nothing to corroborate either accusation, Arias paints a detailed storyline filled with plot holes and laughable explanations. This book takes the testimony and pulls it apart -- line by line. With the application of logic and satire, Arias is exposed as the pathological liar she is. If you ever categorized her as a great liar, your opinion of her lying capabilities will be forever altered at the conclusion of this book. She is a terrible liar, and at times, it is hard not to laugh at what she's trying to sell. Her story, when examined under the light of probability and human nature, sounds like something a child would concoct. Volume II will be forthcoming. That book will cover days 5 - 8 of her direct examination, and the longer she talks, the more absurd it becomes. If you want to see Arias finally get the treatment she so richly deserves, this book is for you.
