    Tame this book is not

    I think George Jacobs must be telling the truth about the goings on with Frank Sinatra and he does honor his memory in glowing detail. However, he also lets us in on the entertainment scene during the 50's and 60's and it isn't pretty. While the salacious details of their hedonistic lifestyle's are interesting and fuel for continued legacy building of the whole person, rather than just their talent, there is a great deal of excess here. Having said that, I couldn't put the book down. The Kennedy's were deplorable. Ava Gardner was a saint? Mia Farrow was a manipulative, philandering woman at 20? I can't think of one reason why Jacobs would lie or distort the truth. This book isn't an easy read but it is fun. Keep your children away from it though. This is not the real world. I recommend this book for historians of the period, not for Sinatra fans.
