Top critical review
on 19 January 2014
If this is an accurate account of Frank Sinatra and his lifestyle I can only say this was not a nice man! I have always been a fan of his music and of course his displays of temper are well documented but this book by his one time valet also highlights other less than admirable traits.
But the problem I found with this account, was that it soon descended into a
repetitive litany of Frank Sinatra's despotic excesses with his need for hookers, his association with gangsters, his spiteful practical jokes, his vendettas etc. . The people he associated with also seemed to have very little to admire, including well known film stars & celebrities and politicians.In the end, as the list of Frank Sinatra's (and indeed others) excesses mounted and mounted, I completely lost interest as so much seem contrived.
