December 12, 2015, marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Francis Albert Sinatra. Almost 20 years after Frank Sinatra's death he is still considered the most iconic and beloved pop singer of the 20th century.
Sinatra was more than just a great musician. He was the poster child for living life to the fullest with his Rat Pack friends, his celebrity companions, and his high profile associations. While Sinatra's style has never been duplicated, generations have been influenced by his legacy. From pop sensation to Civil Rights crusader Sinatra's life and career were filled with stories about his charm, his generosity, his romances, his temper, and his wit.
Sinatra Style examines the essential components of Frank's character that have made him so interesting to the public even 100 years after his birth.

A Gem of an Audiobook!
Chuck McKibben has done it again. His narration of "Sinatra Style" is warm and engaging, especially his read on "My Way." A great audiobook about a great star. I learned a few new things about "Old Blue Eyes!" Very entertaining!
Sinatra Style Review
I felt this Audiobook quite well represented Frank Sinatra, and is authentic from what I know about Frank Sinatra. Truthful, interesting and worth my time!
I think, it's authenticity. The man IS a legend.
No, I've never heard of McKibben. But I think he did quite well narrating this book.
It was appreciated that it was truthful, as far as I can ascertain. I was glad this book told of his generosity because many people do not realize this, since most of his dealings were anonymous.
Frank Sinatra was a very gracious man, talented beyond belief, charming, charismatic, a great father, and very kind to so many people, some, of whom never knew it was he who paid for them. I met the man several times and found him to be just as described in this book -- as good a friend as there ever was. Just never lie to the man! If he found out about a lie, he was through with you!
I find it sad that Paul Anka had to denigrate him with his remarks, after the man is dead, especially after writing the song My Way about Sinatra, which is truthful in content!
