This book doesn't contain any shocking stories. Mancini's history wasn't terribly turbulent. Instead, what this book offers is a portrait of a man who managed to make a living doing what he had always wanted to do.
Mancini's music is central here; it was the driving force of his life, his relationships, and his achievements. The book is all the more effective because of how familiar the reader will be with most of the music he is discussing, either through the films or the records.
