Publisher's Summary

At 90, musician and singer Tony Bennett is as vibrant and productive as ever. In addition to his prodigious musical output, including albums, concerts, and personal appearances, this beloved and enduring artist has written his second book. In 2012's Life Is a Gift, Tony reflected on the lessons he has learned over the years. Now, in Just Getting Started, he pays homage to the remarkable people who inspired those lessons.
In his warm and inviting voice, Tony talks about who and what have enriched his own life, including Charlie Chaplin, Judy Garland, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Cole Porter, Amy Winehouse, Fred Astaire, Lady Gaga, members of his family, significant places; and more. Just Getting Started chronicles the relationship Tony has enjoyed with each one of these legends, entertainers, humanitarians, and loved ones and reveals how the lessons and values they imparted have invaluably shaped his life.
As enchanting and unforgettable as his music, Just Getting Started is a beautiful compilation of reflections every Bennett fan will treasure and a perfect introduction for those just getting to know this remarkable star and humanitarian.

Fascinating autobiography of crooner, Tony Bennett

Would you listen to Just Getting Started again? Why?

A business colleague really loved reading this book. Since I prefer having books read to me, I opted for this Audible choice. I did enjoy hearing Tony Bennett's story, yet I was a bit disappointed listening to someone else doing the narration.

What did you like best about this story?

I thoroughly loved hearing how liberal Mr. Bennett is due to his upbringing. Hearing about who his friends are from Louis Armstrong to Rosemary Clooney - I found it so fascinating. These musicians were the tops in their field and he worked with the cream of the crop!

Which character – as performed by Joe Barrett – was your favorite?


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction, yet I did enjoy having it readily available on my iPhone. Sometimes I'd go back and hear portions over again - which makes this medium so remarkable!

Any additional comments?

This book is a great traveling companion - definitely worth the purchase or credit!
