I loved this book! I know it sounds trite, but I literally could not put it down! I was even reading it at home and work from start to finish. The material in Tosches' book was riveting, and his writing style was so entertaining I found myself re-reading it again and again, like an old movie. Undoubtedly the best Hollywood biography I have ever read!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This book has everything you ever wanted to know about Dean Martin, however, Dino is portrayed darkly. This book gives the impression Mr. Martin didn't care about anything or anyone and I felt depressed after reading it. But I also think this book gives the most accurate reason for the Martin-Lewis breakup. The research that the author Nick Tosches did is very impressive. I recommend adding it to your collection.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
