From the Back Cover:

Subtitled Frank Sinatra and the Lost Art of Livin', Zehme's biography captures all the roles Sinatra has played in his life: Leader; Voice; Swinger; Fighter; Drinker; Actor; Prankster; Gentleman; Father; Lover; and Friend. The most important entertainer of the 20th Century, Sinatra did nothing small. He rounded up the most colorful pals alive -- Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop; and as the Rat Pack they made history.

Masterfully assembled within are the most personal details and gorgeous minutiae of how the role of Frank Sinatra was played in everyday life. The Way You Wear Your Hat was crafted from rare interviews with many intimates, including Tony Bennett, Don Rickles, Angie Dickinson, Tony Curtis, Robert Wagner, and Joey Bishop, as well as his daughters Nancy and Tina. Matters of the heart and heartbreak, coolness and swank, friendship and leadership, drinking and cavorting, brawling and wooing, tuxedos and snap-brims -- here is a stunning exploration of the Sinatra mystique. Capturing the timeless romance and classic style of the fifties and sixties, when Sinatra was at the peak of his heroic powers, The Way You Wear Your Hat is a fresh, insightful look at the man and the way he swaggered.
