About the Author
Vincent Bugliosi received his law degree in 1964. In his career at the L.A. County District Attorney's office, he successfully prosecuted 105 out of 106 felony jury trials, including 21 murder convictions without a single loss. His most famous trial, the Charles Manson case, became the basis of his classic, "Helter Skelter, " the biggest selling true-crime book in publishing history. Two of Bugliosi's other books--"And the Sea Will Tell" and "Outrage"--also reached #1 on the "New York Times" hardcover bestseller list. No other American true-crime writer has ever had more than one book that achieved this ranking. "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder" was likewise a "New York Times" bestseller, and "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy" has been heralded as epic and a book for the ages. HBO, in association with Tom Hanks's PlayTone Productions, will be producing this as a ten-hour mini-series.


Praise For Divinity of Doubt

“I found myself following my wife around the house reading passages of Bugliosi's book to her out loud. I wish I'd written this wonderfully funny deeply moving antidote to the false certainties -- both religious and irreligious -- that have divided our society into warring camps yammering at each other about things no one understands.”
—Frank Schaeffer New York Times bestselling author of Crazy for God: How I Grew Up as One of the Elect, Helped Found the Religious Right, and Lived to Take All (or Almost All) of It Back

“Always eloquent, this is a fascinating read.”
Publishers Weekly

“Bugliosi’s arguments, while familiar, are well-reasoned, clearly presented, and provide a good introductory survey of the theist-versus-atheist-versus-agnostic debate.”
—Booklist
