    Tom Jones 'Close Up' is a must read!

    This 'tell all' book about the great Welsh singer is an excellent read. It traces Jones' legendary rise to superstardom but also includes stories about TJ super fanatics like Pastor Jack J. Stahl, who was named the 'Strangest person in America' for worshipping Jones. This Biography is like none other you will ever read. If you are a fan of Jones & want to know what he is really like 'Close Up', than this is the book for you!
