Tony Bennett in the Studio: A Life of Art and Music
In an unconventional memoir as gracious and unassuming as its author, Tony Bennett waxes rhapsodic about his twin passions, music and art. Lavishly illustrated with Bennett's own accomplished paintings and sketches, this book also includes a CD of the popular performer's favorite songs.

I had no idea Tony Bennett was such a prolific artist and worked in various media. I actually want prints of some of his creations. It is a gorgeous book and the added CD of songs is a nice touch. I found his story interesting, but overly optimistic and happy to the point that it came across as 2D. The writing prevented me from giving it 4 stars.
