The book in my opinion is VERY expensive and overpriced. This book covers Mario's life in great detail.It is very sad not many people understood the true Mario, nor appreciated him while he was alive. It was amazing to read how he evolved in life from a regular guy to Opera singer.It was so sad his life ended so early and such a tragedy that followed his death.

This poignant book is obviously written by someone with great appreciation and admiration for the late tenor. Although he sometimes tries too hard to prove how good Lanza was. The proof, however is in the best part of the book, the CD of rare live performances of Mario himself. The CD alone is worth the cost of the book for the avid Mario Lanza fan.
it was a good book, telling of his early life, his career and his tragic death at the age of 38 in 1959
