Frank Sinatra was the best-known entertainer of his century - infinitely charismatic, more legendary and notorious than any other public personality of his era.
But no matter what you think, you don't know him. In this critically acclaimed biography, James Kaplan reveals how Sinatra made listening to pop music a more personal experience than it had ever been.
We relive the years 1915 to 1954 in vibrant detail, experiencing as if for the first time Sinatra's journey from the streets of Hoboken, his fall from the summit of celebrity, and his Oscar-winning return in From Here to Eternity.
Here is the book that, finally, gets under his skin.
