5.0 out of 5 stars Best FS Life story ever, 11 Jan 2014
This review is from: Frank: The Making Of A Legend (Kindle Edition)
I have read a couple of biographies of the great Frank Sinatra, and I think this one is the best so far. It goes into detail about his often conflicting emotions and is written with a great deal of sympathy, even while acknowledging the fact that Sinatra was a flawed genius. Kaplan uses previously published bios not just of Frank, to illustrate his points. He obviously loves the man and that shines through. It is a fascinating insight into Frank Sinatra's complex personality and a good summary of the events that went into the Making of a Legend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gift for Friend, 16 Aug 2012
Bought this book for a friend's birthday.
I was impressed with it. A large book, well worth the money, with lots of photots. As it was a gift, obviously I havent read the book, so can not comment on content.
My Friend was very happy with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 8 Sep 2013

Truly incredible book. Whether you're a longtime fan or have only recently sparked an interest in the legend that is Mr Sinatra, you will not be disappointed! Kaplan has clearly done a tremendous amount of research and has used a great number of sources, and the fact that he's clearly a fan of Sinatra's music adds a really nice personal touch.
The book only goes up to about the mid 1950s but there is so much information about Frank's early career that you don't feel as though you're missing out.. Can't wait for the next volume!

I enjoyed the book very much but was very disappointed it only goes to 1974 when he
collected his Oscar for From here to Eternity.
