Elvis Presley - Pamela Clarke Keogh. Sam Phillips, founder of Sun Records and the man who discovered Elvis, first visited Memphis with five boys from his church and the only thing they wanted to see was Beale. If Elvis had worn a white button-down oxford cloth shirt, he would still be driving a truck. He’d heard so much about it. He knew that W. C. Handy was from Florence, Alabama, his hometown.

I agree with all the other five star reviews and want to add that the audio-book version has a great female narrator that puts a real edge on this unigue look at Elvis. There's something about her voice and performance that brings the authors already exciting details of the Elvis story to life. I was surprised at the new details that came up and how the dramatizations of certain events made me really feel like I was there with Elvis shopping at Lanzkey's, recording at Sun Records, and performing on stage.

Even if audio-books aren't your thing, you might give it a try. However, after reading the other reviews I also know that this would be a great book to sit with quietly and take it in at your own speed and 'inner voice'. Either way, the author really got a new slant and style to the retelling of how a poor boy with his father working on a chain gang came to fame and changed pop culture forever.

This was one of the best biographies of Elvis I have read - it was written in such a fun & easy to read style, and while it may not touch on every aspect, it did a wonderful job of covering his life, and had many great pictures to boot! I would recommend this book to everyone who wants to know what it was like to be Elvis Presley and wants to learn more about the most talented entertainer of the decade.

Elvis was before my time but I am magically fascinated by any information about him. Elvis still has the power to suck you in.
This book is intelligently written and somehow makes you feel his charm
We are not often graced with people who are so uniquely talented.

I have been a lifelong Elvis fan from collecting his records and pictures to every article and book I could get my hands on. I thought I knew as much as anyone could know about Elvis. I was dead wrong. Pamela Keogh's fresh and insiteful look at Elvis Presley's life and career had me entranced. From the minute I read the first page I knew I could not put this book down. Her take on Elvis and the incredible impact he had on the world is compelling. I would highly recommend this book to everyone whether an Elvis fan or not. And to Pamela Keough I say bravo "a brilliant writer who gets it"

There is obviously a lot of Elvis "product" out there, but this book is special. From gorgeous photographs to top-notch research and text by Keogh, this is a must-have. Whether you're a casual fan or hard-core, add this book to your Elvis collection!

This is the best book.

Was informative of Presley's live!
The book is gushing to a fault in its praise of Elvis. Drug involvement is all but brushed aside. Organization leaves something to be desired, and there is no subject index. Captions for photographs are listed in the back. Chronology is very loose; it was difficult knowing when some events took place. References to Jackie Onassis, Audry Hepburn, and JFK, on the whole, added little.

Priscilla's voice seemed loud and clear. While that helped in understanding her relationship with Elvis, it made the book appear one-sided. Still, Elvis' intense relationship with Ann-Margret was acknowledged.

There were some interesting new details, but very few. I wondered what compelled the author to write the book. Perhaps hearing the old stories in a new publication, or by a new author makes them fresh again. There are always new books on Elvis, and I find myself buying one more.
