Fantastic book. Insights into living in North Memphis. Jerry writes a loving account without whitewash. One of the best books on Elvis I've read. I used to go to the skating rink, fairgounds, movies, and nights at Graceland and relate to much of Jerry's account.

This book is amazing! While this book is about the life of Jerry Schilling, it's also a huge insight into the personal life of Elvis. It starts w/ Jerry's first encounter with Elvis and ends with present day. This book is straight-forward and I think while you get to know Jerry, you also get to know Elvis. I didn't read this book to get to know Jerry, I wanted to know about Elvis. I learned more about the personal Elvis (and it's very moving), but I also found out that Jerry was a GREAT friend to Elvis. He's what Elvis needed most.

Truly a fantastic memoir. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would. Don't hesitate to read. You will not be disappointed.

Jerry Schilling writes about his personal relationship and work with Elvis Presley. It is not a tell-all book. He is very complimentary of the person Elvis was and his musical talent.
