In a career spanning five decades, Elton John has sold over 250 million records worldwide and has appeared in nearly 4,000 live performances. Inducted into both the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame, the GRAMMY, Oscar, and Tony Award winning singer-songwriter is the most successful solo artist Great Britain has ever produced and the third-most successful artist overall in American music history (behind only Elvis Presley and the Beatles).

All That's Left to Know About the Rocket Man chronicles the music legend's entire career, from Empty Sky to Wonderful Crazy Night. Beginning with his humble, and at times disheartening, childhood in the North London suburb of Pinner, readers are privy to the serendipitous meeting between Elton and lyricist Bernie Taupin, with whom he'd form a songwriting partnership that would ultimately rank alongside Lennon and McCartney in its success.

Investigating the highs and lows throughout each musical phase and sartorial change, the book underscores not only the talent behind the legend but the truth behind tales that are familiar only to die-hard fans.
