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.
The author contradicts himself often, but this is a good read.
If you are interested in a little background information on what Hollywood was really like in the 50's and 60's, then this is the book for you.
Highly recommended, not just as a biography, but as description of a lifestyle when Hollywood was still young.
