From Publishers Weekly
According to PW , "the husband-and-wife authors here enthusiastically examine the Presley phenomenon. This album, with more than 250 color and black-and-white pictures, presents the screaming teenage fans, the pink Cadillac, the fluff movies, song lyrics, the 'audacious' Graceland, wife Priscilla beneath a towering hairdo and, of course, Presley in all his mutations."

From School Library Journal
YA Elvis Presley fans are going to love this book. They will find coverage of everything from Elvis' life to the proliferation of memora bilia that never seems to end. A look at the transition in his song lyrics during his career and a filmography are included. The Sterns make the point that these quickly-made films (sometimes three per year) prevented Elvis from focusing completely on his music. Other material found in the book includes annotated listings of museums, catalogs, and books (including cookbooks) centering around Elvis, as well as his favorite stores, car dealers, and restaurants. Not to be missed is the list of groceries that had to be in his pantry at all times and the recipe for his favorite snack. This book is not a deep, psychological study of a legendary figure but is instead a view of a perform er's life and impact on the culture of his time. It is a handsome volume with ex tensive use of color photography on glossy paper. Barbara Weathers, Du chesne Academy, Houston
