Kathleen Cleary did an outstanding job in capturing the persona of an individual who has the genuine ability to make a stranger a friend, make an acquaintance feel important and to make everyone a little more upbeat.Was this review helpful?

Just finished reading 'If This Is Heaven, I Am Going to be a Good Boy.' While my friendship with Tommy dates back to the early 50's, this book revealed information about Tommy's personal life and his many accomplishments which I was never aware of. I found this book to be both extrememly interesting, intriguing and informative.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
