    Tony Bennett will release his book LIFE IS A GIFT: THE ZEN OF BENNETT on November 20.

    Bennett shares the wisdom he has gained from his own experiences and from luminaries he has met along the way, including Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, Lady Gaga, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse, Bono, Aretha Franklin, Elton John, Mariah Carey, Billy Joel, and more.

    Funny and poignant, Bennett's stories reveal how his music--from the breakout hit "Because of You" to the #1 album Duets II --has evolved through the years as new artists, new sounds, and new fans have emerged. But though the times may have changed, Bennett has stayed true to his artistic vision, his ideologies, his zest for living, and his roots in Queens, New York. The book also captures the ways Hollywood and the music industry has changed (or, sometimes, remained the same) since Bennett's rise to stardom in 1951.

    Elegantly designed, containing 16 pages of full color pictures, and illustrated with black-and-white photos throughout, LIFE IS A GIFT: THE ZEN OF BENNETT is the perfect accompaniment to this legend's warm, sophisticated, and graceful melodies that have made him beloved by generations of fans.
