Reviews - What do our customers think?
A tribute to Dean and also a nod to old Hollywood  Aug 17, 2008
I'll start out by confessing that I don't know if I can write a wholly objective review of this one. I wanted to love it. I DID love it. Even after noting that, I have to add that Ricci Martin did not sugar coat this memoir and he revealed plenty of his father's flaws, including the pain and confusion during Dean's divorce from Jeanne Martin (there is an incident with a policeman during that time that reveals much of the pain Ricci was possibly going through).

I am trying to be very careful not to reveal anything that would spoil this for readers. The photo section is wonderful. Also, there are some facts about racial relationships that I found very revealing in this book, especially since Sammy Davis, Jr was a part of the notorious "Rat Pack". I found Ricci's insights and childhood experiences to be very revealing about that side of things.

There are also some secrets revealed, ones that might not surprise those who already know every detail of Dean's life that can be found at various fan sites but I honestly did not know some of the information about Shirley Maclaine that was included in the book. If your imagination is going wild about that, let me add that you'll probably be surprised and perhaps intrigued by the info included but it probably won't be what you expect. Enough said about that. Yes, I'm really, really against lurid details and spoilers so if you're finding that disappointing, I'm sure someone here has written a more explicit review. If you want spoilers, just post a comment to me and I'll fill in any details for you, gladly. But not in this review.

Another part of the book that was enjoyable? Learning about what it was like to grow up in "old Hollywood" before the Sharon Tate murders and other incidents made people lock their doors and hire more security. It was truly a different era, a time when the Martin kids could sell items to tourists from their front lawn (can you imagine the look on the tourists' faces?) or even give some lucky fans a tour of the house.

This is a very personal look from one son's perspective. I recommend reading Deanna Martin's book as well because it gives a whole different view of growing up as the child of Dean Martin and reveals more about Dean's first wife. Ricci clearly adored his father and it shows. Deanna was more critical about him. Both books present a rounded picture of Dean Martin.
 
Dean's later years  Aug 3, 2008
This book is written by Dean's son from his second marriage, Ricci. Simply because Ricci was born later in Dean's life, it doesn't cover as much about Dean as I would like. What is covered is the life Ricci had with his parents and siblings, four of whom were from Dean's first wife and who had seen little of their father for a number of years before he took custody. I am happy to know that Ricci has mostly good things to say about his dad, but his was a different experience then the one his four half siblings had with their dad. You have to read Dina Martin's book also to get a more balanced view of Dean as a parent. There were lengthy descriptions of Ricci's toys and exploits that really didn't involve his father at all and for me, could have be left out of the book.
 
Loving Tribute from a son.  Dec 25, 2007
Necessity for the Dean Martin fan to read. Lots of personal pictures and a view of personal family life.
 
Certainly worth the money  Nov 23, 2007
This is certainly a book for Dean Martin fans. I have read memories are made of this by Deana and although this book is nowhere near the quality or caliber as her book, I would recommend this book. This book was pretty much just info. He didn't delve into much emotions as Deana did but it makes me wish some of the other kids would put their thoughts to paper as well! Enjoy this good book!
 
SON ALSO RISES ...NOT.  Oct 14, 2007
RICCI MARTIN SEEMS LIKE A REAL NICE GUY , BUT THIS BOOK ON HIS DAD IS ONLY OK..IT SHOWS HIS LOVE FOR HIS DAD AND MOM AND THATS GREAT, BUT ITS WRITTEN LIKE AN EIGHT YEAR OLD TYPED IT UP. I GUESS HIS WRITER WAS UNTALENTED.THE ONE THING THAT BOTHERS ME OF THESE BOOKS IS THAT THE OFF SPRING DONT KNOW ANYTHING OF THEIR DADS CAREER.JUST LIKE THE CASH KIDS AND THE CROSBY KIDS AND THE SINATRA BROOD THEY DONT KNOW THEIR DADS CAREER SO THEY MAKE IT UP.IN THIS BOOK HE WRITES HIS DADS BEST BUD MACK GRAY WHO ALWAYS CARRIED A LARGE MANILA ENVELOPE HAD CIGARS INSIDE.THIS IS LUDICROUS!!! EVERYONE KNOWS AND HIS SISTER KNOWS THAT MACK GRAY CARRIED PERCODAN AND PERCOSET AND OTHER BARBITUTES THAT SADLY DEAN NEEDED THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE.IF YOU ARE GOING TO WRITE A BOOK TELL THE TRUTH.STILL I WOULD RECCOMEND THE BOOK.
