Review:

"Jerry Hopkins was the first serious journalist to take Elvis seriously, writing the first biography. The Elvis bookshelf is crowded now, but don’t let that put you off. This thoroughly revised and updated version of his two classic books deserves a shelf of its own." Jann Wenner, founder and editor of Rolling Stone

"Jerry Hopkins long ago established the ground rules for serious biographical consideration of Elvis Presley. With a rare combination of seat-of-the-pants reporting and thoughtful portraiture, he creates a richly nuanced picture of a world in flux, both for Elvis himself and for the broad range of humanity that was and continues to be so indelibly affected by his music." Peter Guralnick, author of Last Train to Memphis and Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley

"The book that Jim Morrison wanted to read. Jerry Hopkins retells the Elvis tale with both authority and compassion . . . Hopkins’ tome remains one of the leaders in its field, non-hysterical but sensational enough in its own way, thoroughly researched and written in a manner that equates with all the best novels 4 out of 5." Mojo
