It's a great read and, whilst it might not be another exposé of "Tricky Dicky", for the jazz person, it's a fascinating look at the inner circles of American politics and, in particular, the choices Mr P and his advisers made.
Obviously the artists booked were "clean" upstanding Americans - even Frank, with all his baggage, was an obvious choice for a gig when the Italian Prime Minister was the guest of honour. Sinatra changed his political allegiance as frequently as he changed bow-ties in his bobbysoxer years!
It's a book well written and well referenced - at times I felt I was sitting midst the blue-rinsed matrons and the portly governors and ambassadors listening to some of the finest music of the era.
