A heavy oversize coffee table style book filled with hundreds of photos of Frank Sinatra. Most of the photos are from the recording studio or concert tours - there are very few candid photos or photos with the family. The book also featured an afterward by each of three Sinatra children. I liked the book but was a bit disappointed - many of the photos were very small and how many contact sheets did we really need to see? I also thought the text for the captions for the photos was a bit too small making it hard to read. The book is mainly photos with very little text and all Sinatra fans will love it. ( )

This is an amazing collection of photographs, some rarely seen and some probably never seen outside of the Sinatra family. With all of the different settings you really get a glimpse of Ol’ Blue Eye’s life, from his early days in New York to his beginnings in the music business, (and everybody in the recording studio in suits,) to his movie career and his work with the Summit, as he preferred to call it, and to his later days as an American icon. This hefty tome is a definite must have for any fan of Frank.

From his family's vast archives―a revelatory new pictorial life of the greatest entertainer of the twentieth century

On the centennial of his birth, Sinatra 100―with the participation of his three children―is an intimate and dramatic visual portrait of Frank Sinatra, revealing many of the previously unseen moments in a remarkable life. Of course, Sinatra’s legacy speaks for itself. An entertainer of mesmerizing talent, charisma, and style, he is one of the best-selling recording artists of all time, and Academy Award-winning actor, and a cultural icon.

From inciting bobby-soxer riots and achieving teen idol status in the 1940s to the incredible recording career, the film career, the Rat Pack and Las Vegas, Sinatra 100 has the unseen photographs (and the iconic ones) as well as a rare trove of memorabilia and ephemera―over half of it never before published. With a majority of the text based on unpublished personal interviews and conversations with Frank Sinatra and his friends, family, and colleagues, Sinatra 100 unparalleled in its scope and depth. It’s the ultimate Sinatra gift, both for the fans who think they’ve seen it all and those just discovering this inimitable artist. 400+ illustrations in color and black-and-white
