Overview

Elvis Presley is the biggest single entertainment personality in the history of American popular culture. More than thirty years after his death in August 1977, he remains the undisputed King of Rock'n'Roll. Jerry Hopkins wrote the first biography of the King in 1971. A sequel followed in 1980. Both were international bestsellers. Long out of print, Hopkins has now combined these two classic bestselling Elvis biographies, with all-new material to give the definitive detailed account of Presley's incredible life. Jerry Hopkins interviewed all those who were close to Elvis; from high school teachers, classmates, old girlfriends, movie directors, agents, recording engineers and disc jockeys; to close friends, bodyguards, sidemen, karate instructors, his doctor, dentist and personal jeweler, to present a comprehensive portrait of this iconic super-celebrity.
