From the Back Cover:

"It took me a long, long time to learn what I now know, and I don't want that to die with me."
-- Frank Sinatra

Leader. Voice. Swinger. Fighter. Drinker. Actor. Prankster. Gentleman. Father. Lover. Friend. The most important entertainer of the 20th century, Frank Sinatra did nothing small. He was all about More, all about Move. Wherever he went became his personal playground. Those who followed learned Much. He rounded up the most colorful pallies alive -- his fabled Rat Pack of Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop -- and made history. Sinatra was always the last to go to sleep and the first to raise hell. A nucleus among men -- his men especially -- he lent out the hubris, covered every ass, cleared the forest, rigged the tempo, made the rules. "You've got to be livin', baby," he would say, "because dyin' is a pain in the ass."

Masterfully assembled within this book are the most personal details and gorgeous minutiae of how the role of Frank Sinatra was played in everyday life, illustrated with scores of classic photographs, some of them never before published. 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 daughters Nancy and Tina Sinatra. Matters of the heart and heartbreak, coolness and swank, friendship and leadership, drinking and cavorting, brawling and wooing, tuxedos and snap-brims, talking the lingo and ring-a-ding-dinging -- here is a stunning exploration of the Sinatra mystique.

He ruled the world on his own terms, inspiring other mortals to ponder their own lives and wonder, What would Frank do? The answers are here at last. Capturing the timeless romance and classic style of the '50s and '60s, 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.
