So biased its comical,
This review is from: His Way: An Unauthorized Biography Of Frank Sinatra (Mass Market Paperback)I'm only writing this review because there are those who think this book contains the "truth" about Sinatra. Think about this, someone who doesn't like you much decides to write a book about you, they find all the people throughout your life that hate you, you have had fights with, don't speak to anymore, or you just don't really like. They ignore anyone who has good things to say or your long time friends and family. They interview them and write the book containing all their quotes, stating its factual, after all people did say these things - right!! Now think about how that would make you look, would it represent the truth about you- i don't think so. This is pure unadulterated garbage, from a twisted viewpoint and not worth the paper its printed on. Did Sinatra have some dark moments, i guess so - but this is not the place to find out about them.

I saw plenty in the book about Sinatra's charity work, about the way he helped many ordinary citizens who experienced harm, and how he worked hard to achieve success. The author documents his generosity to his friends with numerous examples. All that doesn't excuse the many times he acted like a selfish, spoiled brat. Some people are willing to excuse repeated incidents of rudeness or even violence. I'd bet that would change if you were on the receiving end of Sinatra's body guard. Overall, I'd say it's a balanced account.
