From dealing blackjack in the small-time gangster  town of Steubenville, Ohio, to carousing with the  famous "Rat Pack" in a Hollywood he  called home, Dean Martin lived in a grandstand,  guttering life of booze, broads, and big money. He  rubbed shoulders with the mob, the Kennedys, and  Hollywood's biggest stars. He was one of America's  favorite entertainers. But no one really knew him.  Now Nick Tosches reveals the man behind the  image--the dark side of the American dream. It's a  wild, illuminating, sometimes shocking tale of sex,  ambition, heartaches--and a life lived hard, fast,  and without  apologies.
Nick Tosches has written several biographies including Dino: Living High in the Dirty Business of Dreams; Hellfire: The Jerry Lee Lewis Story; and Unsung Heroes of Rock 'n' Roll: The Birth of Rock in the Wild Years Before Elvis. He was born and raised in New Jersey and lives in New York.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from did not like this book This was not what I thought it would be. This was more about the history of the Mafia than about the story of Dean Martin. Very disappointing.
