Don Black talks about working with Jule Styne and an embarrassing moment with Tom Jones, as well as ruminating on the vicissitudes of failure.

A warm and wonderfully moving memoir from the legendary songwriter and creative force behind some of the twentieth century’s biggest hits. Black shares the stories behind some of his most iconic numbers, as well as delightful anecdotes of his collaboration with the industry’s brightest stars. The Sanest Guy in the Room is a celebration of a life in music and a touching tribute to Black’s ultimate inspiration, his wife Shirley.
