    This is the book Frank Sinatra failed to stop, the unauthorized biography of one of the most elusive public figures of our time. Celebrated journalist Kitty Kelley spent three years researching government documents (Mafia-related material, wiretaps and secret testimony) and interviewing more than 800 people in Sinatra's life (family, colleagues, law-enforcement officers, personal friends).

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is one that gives a glimpse into the world of Frank Sinatra. If you're a fan of Frank's you have to listen to it. It will open your eyes and allow you to see a whole different side of Sinatra.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of His Way?

    There isn't one memorable moment. All of the things Frank did that were wrong are memorable. While he was, without a doubt, one of the most generous celebrities ever, he was also the one of the most evil.


    What does Anna Fields bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Anna does a great job changing from Frank to others and giving each person a voice in the book as she reads it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There wasn't one particular moment. All of it was fascinating and Kitty Kelley did a great job researching Frank's life.


    Any additional comments?

    I read through a lot of the reviews prior to buying this book and a lot of people were critical of the amount of unflattering events that were included. Some said that it was overkill, while others said it was a great look into Frank's life. Frank, while great and extremely generous, was a manic depressive and was a real son of a bitch. I think the reviewers that were critical of the amount of negative events were ones that probably idolized Frank and didn't like to read/hear that he was capable of such things. While no one is perfect, Frank was far from it, but this book gives a glimpse of an extremely generous man, as well as a vindictive, narcissistic man. Frank was what he was, but Kitty Kelley lays it all out, both positive and negative. I would say that the author does a great job of highlighting the good that Frank did, as well as the bad.
