Read full description of the books:
Like just about any other book written about a famous person, be prepared to learn about the person behind the public image. Sometimes this is a good thing, and sometimes it's bad, and there is about an equal amount of each in this book. The whole thing about the drugs is finally put into a proper perspective, but you also get to see that the bad effects of the drugs had been dealt with for a much longer period of time than the public realized.
I also don't think that so much of Elvis's sex life or his sexual likes and dislikes should have been here. But I also understand that everything in this book was written to finally get everything straight after years of half-truths and outright lies that were written by former friends and associates of Elvis. And that's the main point of the book, for better or worse, so I would really think hard about how much you really want to find out about the man behind the myth.
For me, this was a must-read, because I have read Marty Lacker's other book several times, and I still prefer it to this one, because even though there were a few dark moments, it mostly showcased the lighter side of Elvis. This book is more or less the opposite, having a few light moments in a mostly dark book. It's still a good book, though, especially if you are a fan of Elvis, like I am.
I have to repeat this one more time, because it's important to keep in mind while you are reading this book. Everything in this book is here to clear up the half-truths and outright lies that other people had written about Elvis up until this book came out. As long as you can remember that one point, you will get a very good look inside the private life of one of the world's favorite entertainers, and maybe even come to understand him a little better as a human being instead of as a revered star on a pedestal that must be constantly worshipped.
Trust me, the real man was much more interesting than the legendary public image, and this is a book that could only be told by those who were the closest. His cousin Billy Smith lends this book a significant amount of credibility, because almost everybody who was ever involved with Elvis says that Billy is the person that Elvis was the closest with, all of the way up until Elvis died.
There are some grumblings about Colonel Tom Parker and members of Elvis's family, but there is also great insight into them as well, and this helps to paint a more complete picture of everything that Elvis was dealing with on a constant basis.
I have already read this book twice since I got it, and I imagine that I will be reading it several more times in the future!
