4.0 out of 5 stars Chronicle of two masters 1 Jun. 2014
By TERRY C WHITLEY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is an extremely rare read: the portrayal of the relationship between two masters of their craft and American pioneers in their chosen arts. This book brings a humanity to Elvis Presley, without being a tawdry tell all. Ed Parker, a martial arts who reached similar height and that our world lost too soon, shows the true loyalty that existed between cultural icons. I highly recommend this book if you want to go beyond the music and Graceland, and discover Elvis for the first time.

I appreciate that this book was written right after his death. I have noticed that Elvis life story has been changing through the years. Ed was a true friend and gives great insights into Elvis.
