4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By wardy on 4 Aug. 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this book. Thought most things had been written about Elvis but there are plenty of good facts here to keep you interested. L ike the author, I visited Gracelands two years ago and walked away feeling strangely unmoved. I note that he then revisited and had a much more fulfilling experience. Largely I found this book a celebration of Elvis' legacy and the wonderful body of work which he left behind. Elvis may not have been the first Rock and Roll artist and musically he may have been risk averse, however no one came close to his amazing voice and huge charisma and I think this book reflects that well.
