very entertaining when he writes about his famous friends.
The first chapters about the beginning of his carreer are boring.

Poorly written, poorly edited 21. April 2013
Von Cathy Cole - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A meandering and mean-spirited book that the world could truly do without. I bought it not because I am a fan of Anka's, but to read about how his career intersected with others'. What I got was a book that meandered all over the place with no chronological thought, almost no detail except on truly juvenile pranks he played on others even as an adult and incredible repetitiveness that any half-skilled editor should have caught and sent back for a rewrite. Egotistical, mean-spirited and boring. Don't waste your money or your time.

My God what an ego this man has. All he does throughout the whole book is
tell the reader how wonderful and smart he is.

What a disappointment 23. April 2013
Von ddledgenet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This memoir started out to be promising but soon degenerated into a conceited, sordid mess. Endless ramblings about the rat pack, the mafia, needless mean spirited tattling (he claims to be a friend to Sammy Davis jr but I sure hope Sammy's kids don't pick this up thinking Uncle Paul would say nice things.)

Another singer who left his faithful wife after a zillion years, what a guy. Glad I didn't push out 5 babies for him. And then let's whine about wife 2....

An egotistical jerk, Too bad I'll think that every time I hear one of his songs from now on. A complete waste of money.

Thank God for Libraries 29. April 2013
Von makeham98 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I am so glad I didn't spend money on this book. And my review pretty much will repeat what several others have said.

The writing in this book is terrible. Conversational to a gigantic fault. Minimal linearity, jumping from decade to decade in the same paragraph. Yes, he mentioned that factoid three chapters ago.

He trashes almost everyone. His one-page mention of Angie Dickinson is deplorable. He has strange ways of describing his "friends", especially those in the mob. He'll describe someone as a killer, but once you get past that he is a dear man and we remained close friends. An entire chapter on what a prankster he is with dull unfunny incidents.

His stories of travelling in early rock and roll shows are probably the most interesting stories in the book (least retold by others). And you'll know that Buddy Holly traveled with his own band because he repeats that seemingly a dozen times.

Books about similar times - try Rickles, or Dean and Me. Much less self-worship and enjoyable.

The Only Conceit Made In This Autobiography Is The Author 24. April 2013
Von G.I Gurdjieff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Poorly written and edited with little sense of order or continuity, this book might be bearable if there was some kindness or honesty hidden within all the story spinning. Mr. My Way (aka Paul Anka) is a singer/songwriter who has been kicking around for decades. After reading this book, I am convinced that all those decades have absolutely taught him nothing about kindness, consideration, loyalty to family and friends, or friendship. He is a man who is short of stature and also short on humility.
This book is a non-stop salute to himself. After all, the worlds revolves around him. Everybody loves him, but no one more than himself. While he spends very little time discussing his daughters or the first wife who bore them and gives little good explanation as to why the marriage fell apart, the reader can infer that his second career as a serial adulterer might have had something to do with it.
As a friend to the rich and famous and self described member of the Rat Pack, there are tales of Frank, Dean, and Sammy as well as people like Michael Jackson who presumably were counted as friends. Sadly, based on the unflattering comments made by Anka, it makes one wonder if these friends are rolling in their graves about now. Heck, if you can't speak well of the dead don't speak at all.
When not talking about his pals, the reader gets to walk on the wild side with Anka in Vegas that is heavy with babes, booze, drugs, and the mob. Come to think of it, there is more of the same when Anka is on the road.
Yes, Paul Anka is a prankster and partier. Conceited and self-centered, this is one guy who likes to talk about his favorite subject.......HIMSELF.
This book quickly loses momentum and rapidly evolves into a big snooze. It travels all over the place, has little continuity, and the author really doesn't connect with the reader in a meaningful way. I advise passing on this book.
