Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974332410, Paperback)

This is the illustrious story of Tom Powell, the colorful, larger-than-life journalist who has spent more than 50 years traveling the world rubbing elbows with everyone from the President of the United States to Baseball Hall of Fame members and side show carnival freaks. For the past 30 years of his career, TP, as he is known today, has written for Amusement Business, the business-to-business weekly newspaper serving the carnival, fairs, arena, and amusement park industries. TP is the best-known, most-loved journalist to ever chronicle the outdoor amusement industry. During his unique career he has been compared to Bob Hope for serving as an ambassador of the industry; Dean Martin for his drinking persona; Jimmy Breslin for his reporting prowess; and to Babe Ruth for his physical girth. He is without a doubt the best-known, most-loved journalist to ever write about these leisure-time fun activities. His personality, his memory, and his ability to write from the heart made his weekly column, TP on AB a must read. Sit back and hear his colorful stories and share in his travels and adventures. TP's is an adventurous, wild and fun life journey. You'll love it!
