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.
