This book was written by Wanda June Hill, someone who knew & loved Elvis as a close friend, and not as Elvis the star. In this book the author reveals the true character of Elvis, much of it through interviews she taped, with his consent. The interviews were done primarily in 1976 via phone & one face to face. Here we see that Elvis is humorous, appreciative of his fans, thoughtful, sometimes having an occasional "attitude", alert, aware, intelligent, and having good memory, completely dispelling the drug abuse myths. This book is well written, entertaining & insightful. It also includes the author's own story in meeting and getting to know Elvis, as well as comments from others who had the chance & privilege to get to know the man behind the image. I have gotten to know Mrs. Hill quite well and find her to be genuine & caring. Not for a moment do I think this book was done for money. She wrote this book as an honor to her dear friend Elvis & his memory. Highly recommended!
