Customer Review

on 4 April 2006
Though containing none of the controversial or explosive material often associated with Summers' books, this is one of the better biographies of Sinatra.
Much of it is taken from other published sources, which is slightly disappointing, but as a comprehensive and easy-to-read biography it has great merit. Certainly for anyone new to Sinatra's life this book will be informative and save many a pound on buying other, less thorough biographies of the man.
Summers remains on the whole neutral in this work, presenting fact, fiction and anecdote for the reader to interpret, but while leaving few dark areas unexplored he gives recognition to Sinatra's hard work and determination to get to the top and stay there.
A good one to have on the shelves for a well-rounded look at the life of this complex man.
