Interesting look at Sinatra - with 100 chapters - each with a story or reflection on Sinatra - some just a few sentences and others 2 or 3 pages. A very nice tribute to Sinatra.

This was an interesting book. It had lots of biographical information, but it wasn't a traditional biography. It moved in a (somewhat) linear fashion without being too dependent on normal biographical formulas. A great feature of this book: open to any section and find a story worth reading. Frank Sinatra really was larger than life; he transcended all norms of fame and celebrity.

He really did do it his way.
