Review:

""The Way You Wear Your Hat" is a warm, wacky, irreverent...look at Frank's take on and philosophy of life, by an author who understands what it means to be Frank Sinatra. With a little help from the man's own words, Bill Zehme captures the contradictions: the simplicity and the style, the passion and the ice, the party and the pain...the winner who loses and the loser who wins...stories that capture the nature and the essence of the man who invented cool." -- Nancy Sinatra"An essential compendium of Sinatra wisdom on the lost art of livin'. This book is an ode to an era when male conduct was less confused and confidence was king." --" Newsweek""Not really a biography, it's funny and illuminating without being either lurid or sentimental." -- Elvis Costello "One of the best books ever written about Frank Sinatra. It perfectly captures his style and attitude. You won't be disappointed." -- Sinatra Society of America "A strictly fun style guide for men, with Ol' Blue Eyes as muse." --" Entertainment Weekly"

From the Back Cover:
