    Wnderfully heartwarming

    Deana Martin writes a candid, poignant, heartwrming, emotional memoir capturing the essence of her father and what it was like growing up in the Dean Martin household. She does a beautiful portrait of what her father was all about -- his music, his humble beginnnnigs, his family, his friends, his successes, his roots, and yes, even his 'failures'. As someone who''s generation respected the man, and whose family had been a huge fan, being of Italian descent as well as Abbruzzese too, this book brings back warm memories of Dean Martin, all tht he was, all that he stood for.

    Great Story From Member of the Family

    I enjoyed this book because it is well-written and is by his daughter Deana. Dean Martin as revealed by her is a poignant, interesting story including the happy and sad times. He was a better father than I had thought, although I really felt for his first wife when and after he left her. Deana talks about what is was like to live with a famous Dad and celebrities coming and going all the time. As everyone knows, the death of his son Dino had a severe impact on Dean. This book is not filled with scandalous made-up anecdotes as in some books. I feel the book is balanced and well worth reading.
