Publisher's Summary

In 1997, Taraborrelli's best-selling Sinatra: Behind the Legend captivated audiences with a never-before-seen look at the life of an icon through six years of research and over 425 interviews with associates, friends, and lovers. Now Taraborrelli is back with a completely new and updated lens.

Fans of Sinatra - old and new - will be able to delve into the private life and controversy of a musician whose career spans decades. From show business, struggles with depression, and his many romances to attaining the American dream, Sinatra's story delivers a captivating and humanizing portrait of the legend for a new age.

Taraborrelli is known for capturing and penning the untold stories of icons such as the Hiltons, Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Diana Ross, and the Kennedys. He has written a pause-resisting biography of an extremely talented, sometimes troubled, always fascinating man: the one and only Frank Sinatra.

Well done!

I’ve read many Sinatra books and a lot of them don’t paint a very nice picture of him, they show his temper. He was a warm caring man who took care of his friends and family and was very charitable. I learned more about him in this book and it showed what a loving Father he was.

Frank

if you like Frank Sinatra, you like this book. I enjoy biographies and this is a good one. Frank was a complex man, a good actor, a great singer, and full of charisma.

Taraborrelli Did it Again

J Randy Taraborrelli is quickly becoming my favorite Author. When you're listening to the story and a question pops in your head he answers it in the next sentence or 2 he doesn't leave a stone unturned I love reading autobiographies.

He has a great voice.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Make it shorter. Way too long.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

F. Sinatra was not a nice person. Complete egotist who bent circumstances to suit only him.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

He is a great narrator. Does familiar voices very well.

Did Sinatra inspire you to do anything?

Stay true to my values.

Any additional comments?

I'll keep listening to the Frank Sinatra channel on Sirius XM.
