Krough's amazing eyewitness account of the day Elvis met Nixon is well worth reading. This unlikely pair got together for the most unlikely reasons. Each was looking for something to gain. Each seemed satisfied with the result. The story adds to the well-deserved mystique of each of these unique characters. The book, while no literary masterpiece (and not pretending to be such), is a delightful 30-minute read that will leave you with a great story to tell at parties. I recommend it highly

this book details the day of the meeting between elvis and nixon. It is detailed but an easy reader. It is anything except boring! In the back you will find a RARE 8 by 10 color photo of the two that is worth the price in gold.

Format: Paperback
I got this book at Graceland when it was a new item back in 1995, and I was previously unaware of its existence. Of course, I knew that the two had met, as one of those bizarre connections of wildly different people. I couldn't pass it by as a souvenir, rather than all the cheesy alternatives. The book is entertaining, with a casual, chatty approach so different from typical works that involve politicians.

The classic, well-known photo of Nixon and Elvis is there, with several other informal shots. Mr. Krogh has included plenty of amusing details, such as Elvis' letter to Nixon on an airline notepad and Elvis rummaging through Nixon's desk looking for mementos for his pals. I don't think additional content would really have added much, as Mr. Krogh included enough for readers to get the picture.

After the meeting, the story moves to lunch in the cafeteria with folks used to political superstars thrilled by the appearance of a *real* superstar, and the arrival of the coveted official federal narcotics badge, per Nixon's order. The badge was at Graceland in my visit, and the whole adventure leaves me both amused and somewhat befuddled. What was Elvis thinking, anyway? Elvis certainly didn't take Nixon's advice to Elvis, which included, "just be sure you keep your credibility."

BUT GREAT FUN. I learned much more about the Nixon Whitehouse than I'm sure I wanted to know. How the administration made it through a single term is beyond my comprehension. THE DAY ELVIS MET NIXON is literally and entire day of machinations, intrigue, and bungling. This book is more or less the tic toc of the day, without mentioning the iron of "The King's" own serious addiction problems and documented cause of death. Fun read for "boomers" as well as students of history.

Enjoyed this book by Egil Krogh. It was very detailed. It made me feel like I was there. I never get tired of hearing how Elvis met the president. It is very interesting. However, it didn't mention the remark that President Nixon said to Elvis about his clothing. I remember from other books I'[ve read that Elvis said something like 'you have your show to run and I got mine'. Probably Egil wasn't there when this comment was said. Anyhow, very good book to read if you like Elvis stories!

I was unaware that this book ever existed so I was pleased to find it on Amazon.com. I enjoyed the "first hand" account of this historic event.
Written by Egil Krogh, it was very interesting. The book contains many
photos of the event. It was also great to see the actual letter Elvis wrote
to President Nixon on American Air Lines stationary on the flight there.
I recommend this book to anyone who is an Elvis fan or President Nixon fan.
A historic event!
