PLOT (from the cover): Across six decades, Sir Tom Jones has maintained a vital career in a risky, unstable business notorious for the short lives of its artists. With a drive that comes from nothing but the love of what he does, he breaks through and then wrestles with the vagaries of the music industry, the nature of success, and its inevitable consequences.
Having recorded an expansive body of work and performed with fellow artists across every popular music genre--from rock, pop and dance to country, blues and soul--the one constant throughout has been Tom's unique musical gifts and unmistakable voice.
But how did a boy from a Welsh coal-mining family attain success around the globe? And how has he survived the twists and turns of fame and fortune to not only stay exciting, but actually become more credible and interesting with age?
In this, his first-ever autobiography, Tom revisits his past and tells the tale of his journey from war-time Pontypridd to LA and beyond. He reveals the stories behind the ups and downs of his fascinating and remarkable life, from the early heydays to the subsequent fallow years to his later period of artistic renaissance.
Raw, honest, funny and powerful, this is a memoir like no other from one of the world's greatest-ever singing talents.
