Frank Sinatra: The Artist and His Music by David Morrell
4.0 out of 5 stars Good read, 10 Feb 2014
Whilst not quite as comprehensive as the Kaplan book, this is a good all-round story of the artist, focusing more on the music than the private life.
Well-written and researched, I put this as number 2 of books on Frank Sinatra.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, 25 Jan 2014
I was looking forward to reading this as I thought there might be something original in it but unfortunately it was just another attempt to make money out of the Sinatra name. This guy could have read any of the books on the great singer to produce this. Some of it was clearly inaccurate and a lot of it was about Tony not Frank. Difficult to read and hopping from one historical place to another I would not recommend it. Disappointing.
Mr S: The Last Word on Frank Sinatra by George Jacobs

I liked the beginning of the book - it led to the start of the story of George's service for Frank Sinatra. He seemed to like and admire his ex-employer and the lifestyle he was privileged to while he worked for him.
Half way through it began turning a little sour as he focused on the unsavoury relationships Sinatra established and began to dwell on Sinatra's dark side.
In the end I was not sure whether George liked Frank or not. Parts of the book seemed to be factual and others possibly invented or at least embellished.
However, it was a rollicking good read and flowed well. I found it hard to put down.
