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