Publisher's Summary

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). Fully documented, highly detailed and filled with revealing anecdotes, here is the penetrating story of the explosively controversial and undeniably multi-talented legend who ruled the entertainment industry for more than 50 years.

Critic Reviews

"The most eye-opening celebrity biography of our time." (William Safire, The New York Times)
"A compelling page-turner...Kitty Kelley's book has made all future Sinatra biographies virtually redundant." ( Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)

awful narrator!!!!

What would have made His Way better?

thought it was Kitty, maybe she would have done a better job of reading her own book!

What do you think your next listen will be?

nothing narrated by Anna Fields

How could the performance have been better?

Annoyed -Had to return

I got the book because I missed the episode of this subject on Kitty Kelly's TV show so I was excited to be able to read it, but the publisher pulled a bait and switch on me. Now I am sorry but I just can't with the person reading it... yes, I should have read who was reading, but why would you have the author read a small part and not the entire book, and then use the authors voice on the damn sample??

Did you get upset too?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Just any untruths, if there are any.

Would you recommend His Way to your friends? Why or why not?

I would,if they were Sinatra fans.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

It did but at some points got old and repetitious.

Do you think His Way needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

N/A

Any additional comments?

I did not know all this about Frank Sinatra. I knew of the possible mafia ties, but not of the spoiled kid that grew to a spoiled old man. The pain he caused many people around him and strangers. I liked the book, there were a lot of references, but Kitty Kelley was a name I was told not to trust. By The end of the book I wish I could go back in time and punch a young Frank Sinatra in the face and put him in his place.
