Jerry Schilling's book portrays a friendship story told in the highest respect and purest love for a person who was and still is loved by millions to this day. True friendship is weathering the ups and downs of life and still knowing that friendship will never die. This was a story about two human beings, beautifully told with dignity.

Excellently written* The only thing that I must s ay though, is that according to my books on numerology, Elvis was a numer 9, not 8......A wonderful book however, it's good to see Elvis as a human being, not a god. I grew up to his music, My grandmother was a big fan. I had a very bad childhood, and the voice of Elvis had always had a soul soothing affect on me, not just his beautiful looks. He was one of a kind, there will never be another one like him. I still listen to him, and I made my children, who are adults now, listen to him, they are now making my grandchildren appreciate the pure musical genius of Elvis as well. There no words to describe Elvis Presley, just that I thank god that I had his music to survive a very rough youth. Thankyou Jerry Schilling for identifying with that, and putting that aspect of his voice down in words.

I have read quite few books about Elvis, but I believe that this one was the most enjoyable. It talks a lot about the private Elvis, his friendships, and most importantly tells the story of a boy who grew to be a man in Elvis' world. Great stories about the early days, the Colonel, Priscilla, and life after Elvis. I cruised through this book wishing for more. Jerry's easy style of story telling makes you feel like he is talking to a friend. Highly recommended.

I loved the book. I found it to be a loving gentle book about a boy {Jerry} and the beginning of a loving friendship with Elvis. It was an easy read and I couldn't put it down. It felt as if I was sitting somewhere with Jerry and he was sharing a sweet story about friendship and love. I enjoyed it very much.

I was 14 years old when Elvis died in 1977 but remember it like it was yesterday. I'm sure that like many others, my interest in him and his impact on so much of American culture has only increased with time. This book helped me understand so much about his life and what it was like to know him as a friend. Jerry has done a wonderful job of telling the truth without beating to death the bad parts as some have but speaking openly about the human side and cost of fame. His book is one which ultimately leaves you feeling that you too, knew "the King" and hope to know him even better in the next Life.

Mr. Schilling has done what I've seen NO one else (including Priscilla) do - he's shown us Elvis the person.

Jerry did a wonderful job sharing his personal moments with his very much admired friend, Elvis. Elvis once again comes across as a very nice person who cares for his family, friends, and fans. Once Jerry shares at the end of the book of his employment at Elvis Enterprise I realize why he speaks so highly of Priscilla.

I loved this book. As a 3rd generation Elvis fan, it really showed me what we all knew, he was a man ( a great man)....It was the Elvis that we all wanted to know and the only book that I have ever read that filled me with such emotion that I cried as if it were August 16th all over again.

I caught myself smiling so many times while reading Jerry's adventures with Elvis. Lovingly well written, informative and really enjoyable accounts of these two men and what they meant to each other. Elvis fans will appreciate the lifelong loyalty Jerry showed to Elvis and continues to show by his words and actions to this day.
