It’s Quite Unusual: The Life and Times of Sir Tom Jones

So Much for a “Tell-All”

Tom Jones sure has a remarkable life story to tell. The thing is, he didn’t write about it in his “tell-all” autobiography, Over the Top and Back. Over the course of the book’s 500 pages, with all the moody cover shots and showbiz photographs, readers get a look into his time on The Voice, in Vegas, and everything in between.

Readers even get to see how Jones was the perfect husband to his late wife Linda during their 58-year marriage (he hated to leave her alone when he first went to seek fame in London in the ‘50s). But he didn’t mention the scandalous side of his life. But that’s the thing about autobiographies; they’re subjective.
