What makes this special for music enthusiasts is the attention paid to her recording work, stories and anecdotes from her recording sessions. At the end of each chapter I had to put the book down and play the songs mentioned in the chapter. This book really makes her contribution to the music world come alive. In future when listening to a track I now know something of the background to the recording, as a music collector this makes for extra listening pleasure.
The last third if the book is the most comprehensive catalogue of her recordings, TV and public appearances. To conclude the book there is a year by year account of her life.......absolutely fascinating.
Congratulations to the two authors for once again providing the public with a superb testament to popular music. The time and energy spent in their research is outstanding.
I spent a day reading this book and enjoyed every moment of that time.....a book I will be returning too many many times.

book gives great insight into Ms. Clooney's vocal range over the years, timing and phrasing. It is interesting to learn of her personal trials and triumphs. Great read.
