" Boken beskriver en sida om Elvis som inte tas upp i andra biografier "
" He paid Lamar his 30 pieces of silver then produced one of the worst hatchet jobs known to man. "
" gossip "
" Extremely well documented for the time it came out. In many ways this book is an extension of "Elvis What Happened" only adding new sources, mainly Lamar Fike's. This book was the first to reveal Colonel Tom Parker's former life in Holland, Europe before he moved to the States and his real name: Andreas Van Kuijk. Now as far as the content of the book Goldman acts like a district attorney and leaves Elvis no attenuating circumstances. Lamar once said : "before writing his book Goldman really liked Elvis, then he began to dislike him and by the end of his writing he hated him". Sadly, it is pretty obvious when reading the book. "
" in the lawsuit goldman said he just made the stories up! "
" Albert Goldman hates rock&roll, Elvis, and music. "
" Goldman gets the attention of the audience he is aiming for. Goldman exploits Elvis's life and makes it one continuous tabloid to read about. This is what Goldman was shooting for and I believe he accomplished his goal. "
" Trash "
" Pure crap from a man who should of been sued for poor writting. "
