    "I think this is a good analysis of the book but I believe there are more details that can sell the book and draw a reader to want to purchase this book. The book will appeal to those who grew up with the King but would also to younger generations wanting to understand what exactly made Elvis Presley such a sensation. Give me an example to make me want to purchase this book over the numerous others published about Elvis Presley. "
