Media Deception

05 Jul: Let’s Talk Media Deception: Sold to the Highest Bidder

Book Review: Tony Bennett - Just Getting Started

08 May: Sal’s Book Review #3: Just Getting Started – Tony Bennett

Other than Sal and Tony Bennett both hailing from the boroughs of New York (Brooklyn vs. Queens – respectively) it turns out there are a ton of similarities between “Just Getting Started” and “Boys of Brooklyn”- right down to the fact that both Sal and Tony’s family are descended from Calabria, Italy… just add in a little Hollywood “Who’s Who” list of characters (and well respected civil rights leaders) for Tony and you’ll agree with Sal when he says that Tony “gives insight, not only to himself and New York- but to the contribution to humanity itself”.
