I love this book...First part choked me up. -- Regis Philbin I cried, I laughed as I read the real story of Deano-the-Dad recorded so lovingly by his son Ricci; a heart-warming legend. -- Phyllis Diller This book is too good. -- Tony Curtis The book brought back wonderful memories of those magical happy times; well done. -- Janet Leigh Martin sang, danced, and joked his way past the Dean Martin/Jerry Lewis routine into the Rat Pack and starring roles in a number of movies. His son reminisces about their home life and his father's career in this illustrated memoir. Richmond Times-Dispatch Ricci Martin invites readers into his Beverly Hills childhood home... Los Angeles Times ...a warm, affectionate portrait of the popular performer...

Tv Guide The son of the Rat Pack's most mysterious member creates a complete, honest protrait of his father, bringing to life his childhood and revealing the trials, tribulations, and exploits that colored the life of this legend.

I must admit that I was not really a Dean Martin fan, but this book was written so well that it really did change my image of him. It showed him as a rather straight forward guy who enjoyed what he did for a living, and saw no reason to follow the crowd. "That's Amore" displayed the senistive and honest side of a man who at the hit of his fame, remained a family man at heart. Most people perception of him is that of light entertainer with a drink in one hand. He was a man of his time and there will never be another. The last few chapters made compulsive reading. I highly recommend this book.

That's Amore could have been written by Dean Martin himself. It's humour was infectious and it's honesty was humbling. This book is a must for all Dean Martin/Rat Pack fans..and if you're not a fan you soon will be!

I purchased this book after reading "Memories are Made of This" by his daughter Deana Martin which despite having wonderful stories about her father claims (amazingly!) was not a good father!? Ricci Martin is the youngest of the 7 children and tells us right at the beginning of the book how deeply he misses his father, writing a very warm and moving tribute to him. I found this to be a lovely book with loads of beautiful family photos. The stories that followed showed Dean Martin to be a very good and warm family man with a son who clearly adored him. Some of the stories are similar to Deana's, yet they are written with love rather than bitterness. Ricci Martin comes across as a very likeable and thoughtful individual, who I found myself instantly warming to. The only drawback for me is that the book was a bit too short and could have done with an extra 50 pages or so. Otherwise, a cracking good read!!

Slightly lighter in tone than his half-sister's effort, being the younger sibling his memories cover different aspects of the Martin family life, also deals with members in more details, particularly the eldest son. Interesting for Dean's fans, but not as gritty and informative as Deena's which I preferred.
