This book is an exemplar of how this kind of book should be prepared about other recording artists.
However, the book took a very long time in arriving at my address. The shipper used some joint type of shipping using both UPS/USPS and neither could tell me where the book was when it was overdue as they have different tracking systems.
The big complaint I have is that the seller advertised this item as the hardcover edition of the book. I was hugely disappointed to find that I was sent a softcover book! A complaint about this to the seller has gone unanswered for weeks.
I WILL NEVER BUY FROM THIS SELLER AGAIN!!!!
The last performance of Perry Como in Ireland was told poignantly--and hinted that the Alzheimer's disease may have been a factor in the difficulties Como had at his last public performance in Dublin. Not many entertainers would have offered attendees their money back. But integrity seemed to be a hallmark of Como. He did have times when close associates would be "frozen" out--sometimes for years. But there were also reconciliations. All in all, the personality we all saw each week on his TV shows, was more real than most other TV personalities then or now.
