shameful and lame. I paid $11 for this last year and went to gift this to someone. I won't pay $16 for a digital download.
The "pros and cons" concerning Elvis and "Colonel" Tom Parker have been discussed, publicly and privately, now for over six decades. For anyone to try to get to the "root" of the relationship between the two men would be undertaking a daunting task indeed. Yet, Alanna Nash has perfectly balanced the sides and created not only a book worth reading...but one worth owining and reading again and again.
Even to those who knew Elvis Presley from childhood, and were with him up through the day he died, they differ on what exactly was the relationship between Elvis and the Colonel.
Alanna Nash is a gifted writer who opts to state facts all the while weaving a story that compels the reader to continue "turning the pages". Alanna Nash has written an honest, compelling, and fact filled book and it should be required reading for those who are interested in the truth about Elvis Presley and "Colonel" Tom Parker.
I highly recommend this book.
