From bestselling biographer Sean Smith comes the fascinating and tumultuous true story behind Sir Tom Jones, the nation's treasure, sage of The Voice and living music legend.
Celebrating his 75th birthday this year, Tom Jones' life has been an unforgettable rollercoaster ride.
From starting out in a little Welsh mining town where he married his sweetheart at just 16, who could have known that seven years later he would go on to become a major musical hit that would propel him to Bel Air?
Through intimate interviews, Smith uncovers all this and more, including the years Tom spent as little more than a Vegas lounge singer, before being rediscovered in the late '80s and becoming a maestro on the music scene once again.
As revealing as it is entertaining, this is the definitive story of a great talent who is showing no signs of slowing down.
