4.0 out of 5 stars The King and Dr. Nick, 10 Feb 2010
By

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The King and Dr. Nick (Hardcover)
There have been hundreds of books written about Elvis Presley, many of them sensationalist, sychophantic or just plain sleazy. This is different. The book is in two parts. In the first section Dr. Nichopoulos tells of Elvis's myriad health problems and his attempts to curb Elvis's self-acknowledged destructive tendencies in order to treat them (not an easy task as Elvis simply found what he wanted elsewhere). The second part of the book shows how Dr. Nichopoulos struggled over many years to clear his name. It is shocking to see how the media instigated what can only be described as a witch hunt, and how everyone involved seemed to have their own personal agenda.
The book is well-written and Dr. Nichopoulos comes across as sincere and honest. He has managed to change my long-held perception that Elvis Presley was himself the architect of his own destruction. This I believe was the main goal of Dr. Nichopoulos in writing the book and he has succeeded, at least as far as I'm concerned. I can only sympathise with both men.

5.0 out of 5 stars The book of love and truth, 9 April 2012
By 
Mr. Kenneth W. Roper "Elvis and Alabama fan" (Kidlington England) - See all my reviews

This review is from: The King and Dr. Nick (Hardcover)
I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of this great book signed by Doctor Nick himself, and as an avid Elvis fan and collector this has pride of place in my collection. In the front of the book he wrote, and I quote, "Ken, the book of love and truth 2010" and having read the book, and the passion with which Doctor Nick defends Elvis, and the hell he went through in the American courts, before clearing his name is covered, warts and all, the quote says it all. There have been many books written about Elvis by those close to him, many of which saw him as little more than a cash cow and were in it for what they could get. Doctor Nick's book is a clear insight into the continual battle Elvis had with prescription drugs. This book is well worth reading, if you want a clear insight into both Doctor Nick and his most famous patient.

Have wanted this book for a long time, and it has certainly not dissapointed me. Very emotional, interesting, and enlightening to say the least. As a massive massive Elvis fan, this has been a welcome addition to my large collection of books and memorabilia.
