These essays focus on the legendary performer in various media during (the years 1931-57). . . This wide-ranging collection makes it clear that Crosby's importance is not and should never be forgotten. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. CHOICE The splendid essays in Going My Way form an intricate collage that captures Crosby at the intersection of so many aspects of American culture. From jazz to film, Catholicism to cartoons, rock 'n' roll to the revolutionary taping of broadcasts, Crosby emerges as a more complex and fascinating figure than any single biographer or historian could render. -- Philip Furia, Professor of Creative Writing, University of North Carolina, Wilmington This is a fine book about one of the great entertainers in America. It tells of our culture and of one of the biggest stars America ever had, one I was privileged to know and work with. Not only was Bing Crosby the best singer I ever heard but he was also a great actor, and he brought humor and honesty to anything he did. Going My Way captures the essence of Bing. --Margaret Whiting

Some nice photos and good reading but I'm not into the 'heavy dissection' of things and this, for me, took away from the articles. I feel like I should be a surgeon at times. A nice presentation though. Anything Bing is good as far as I'm concerned.
