Overview

The Most Revealing Elvis Book You'll Ever Read

Literally hundreds of books and millions of words have been written about the phenomenon that was Elvis Presley. None even approaches what is revealed in this one - because this is the one story Elvis made Larry Geller promise to tell. It was Larry who sat in meditation with Elvis for hours at a time or for brief moments before a show. It was Larry whom Elvis could talk with about his deepest beliefs. And so, Larry became one of Elvis' closest confidants. He knew a side of Elvis that few others knew, and fewer understood.

Here at last is the full, true and mesmerizing story of Elvis Presley, who died in 1977, but whose legend is bigger than ever. Not until now have we had the chance to know him as he would have wanted us to. Many books tell what Elvis did. This one tells what Elvis believed. When you plumb the depths of Elvis' soul as it is revealed here, you will understand the real Elvis. You will know him, and very likely, love him even more.

You will read passages from his favorite books, with quotes and pictures of the philosophers and spiritual thinkers he admired: Paramahansa Yogananda, Kahlil Gibran and many others. You will view photographs of never-before-seen actual pages from some of those books, including The Prophet, with notes and comments in his own handwriting. Maybe best of all, you will listen in on intimate conversations that Elvis and Larry shared on a myriad of subjects over the years, including his feelings about the women in his life, the future of his career and life after death.

What Larry describes of Elvis here will shock some people. It's guaranteed to surprise you. Because what you will discover is a side of Elvis that was so intimate and personal, he never publicly let it out in words, only through his music. Yet the purity and authenticity of this story will absolutely convince you that you have, finally, met the real Elvis.

As Larry explains: Elvis charged me with this responsibility, empowering me and inspiring me to write this book when he said, 'The world knows Elvis Presley all right, but they don't know me. I want them to know me, the real person. Larry, I'm counting on you.'

Take a walk with Elvis and Larry through the heart and soul of Elvis the seeker. No matter how much you may already know of Elvis, you will come away feeling that you know him far better for having experienced Leaves of Elvis' Garden.

Meet the Author

Larry Geller was much more than Elvis Presley's personal hairstylist. He was also, from the day they met in 1964, to the day he styled Elvis' hair for his funeral, his confidant and spiritual mentor. He brought into Elvis' life books and ideas that they shared in countless intimate conversations over the course of their many years together.

Before meeting Elvis, Larry worked with the famed hairstylist Jay Sebring. Their clientele read like a Hollywood Who's Who, with such luminaries as Frank Sinatra, Paul Newman, Marlon Brando, Peter Sellers, Steve McQueen, Henry Fonda, Peter Fonda, Robert Wagner, James Garner, Bobby Darin, Sammy David, Jr., Rock Hudson, Roy Orbison, Sam Cooke, Kirk Douglas, Tony Bennett, Jackie Gleason and many, many more.
