The Key To Zen For Tony Bennett: 'Life Is A Gift'

At 86, legendary singer Tony Bennett says he's at the top of his game and more passionate than ever about his art.

Throughout his sixty years in the recording industry, Bennett has performed for every American president since Dwight Eisenhower, has won 17 Grammy awards and sold millions of records.

In his memoir Life is a Gift, Bennett reflects on his decades in the industry, a lifetime surrounded by family and friends, and, as Bennett puts it, "zigging when others zagged."
