This book is a fascinating look at the disintegration and warping of Elvis Presley. The interesting thing is that this was published before Elvis died. Now of course we know the tragic end. This book is written by his closest friends and provides a disturbing picture of a very complex. tortured and troubled soul. It is a riveting book that I finished in a sleepless two day marathon. I could not put it down. I had just finished the Unmasked biography of Micheal Jackson. The similarities are abosolutely unbelieveable. This is a must read for Elvis fans AND for Jackson fans. Yes Jackson fans especially those who are reading or will read Unmasked. Even if you hate Elvis, this story is just too riviting to put down...It is hypnotic in its tragedy. Try it!
