Life is a gift - the Zen of Bennett

book cover image

As easy on the ears as it is to hear Tony Bennett croon through a version of his signature song, I left my heart in San Francisco, it is just as easy to read through Tony's recent book,  Life is a Gift. 

The sub-title The Zen of Bennett is an apt choice to let the reader know this isn't a weighty biographical tome but a collection of Bennett musings - 24 of them - on the highs and lows of his six decade plus career, the talented celebrities he's shared stages with and his heartfelt gratitude for a blessed life.  

You can read the chapters in any order.   Tony's natural, conversational  style invites you to  share his joy of life.  His enthusiasm for the latter is inspiring.   For other Bennett biographies see the Library's titles here.  For Tony's  CD recordings click here.
