The World Knows Elvis Presley, but They Don't Know Me Hardcover Book

The World Knows Elvis Presley, but They Don't Know Me Hardcover Book has been written by a person who conducts Elvis, (and other musical stars), tours and knows what he is talking about. This is a refreshing book on Elvis and a pleasure to read. The author is not one of the 'bash the fat junkie Elvis' writers and you can tell he loves his subject. At the same time he does destroy several myths in his writing and sets the record straight on the Memphis Mafia and Tom Parker If you are fed up with the usual trash that is on the market about the greatest entertainer that has ever lived and would like to read what he was really like and how his own so - called 'friends' acted towards behind his back and ripped him off then this book is for you. Buy it, read it and have your eyes open.
