I don't beleive the content of the book.
Joe Cain
I don't pretend to know whether Elvis is dead or alive, but this book certainly did not help me any in my quest for the truth.
William C Lyles
I also learned that Hinton was an Elvis fanatic and an Elvis impersonator prior to writing this book.

I am a man that got into the Elvis is alive thing not by my choice but by someone choosing me to search for the truth. I talked to many many people claiming to be Elvis but I had things that only Elvis knew. With this I was able to prove them wrong with no problem at all. I had become friends with one of Elvis's closest friends, I ask him one night in 1996 did Elvis really die in 1977 and he said "As we knew him yes he died" that statement I found very odd and it told me that the image did die but not the man. Later on that same night this man gave me a coin and said keep this you might need it someday and also ask me to tell Elvis something if I ever got to talk to him. I thought he was a little crazy at that point this all happend in one night and it was alot to soak in but I looked him in the eye when he told me the message and he was very serious you could see it in his eyes. So I went on my search and I found this book and then everything fell into place. I believe this book is 100% correct. Now that their is a case in the courts with DNA evidence as the back bone of the case all should come clear to everyone real soon and this book will be priceless. All Elvis fans should read this book. This book will help you see why and how it all came to be. This is the real deal and everyone will see that it is the "Real Truth about Elvis Aron Presley in his own words" real soon. Dr Hinton never claimed to be a writer and if the writing is not as good as you think it should be, look over it, the facts are what we are after, not the style of writing. This is the best book for information I have seen to date.

Format: Paperback
The premise is quite simple - we've all heard the rumors for nearly 25 years now. Elvis faked his death and has assumed the identity of his stillborn twin Jesse. Dr. Hinton, a supposedly legit psychiatrist has been contacted by an Elvis newsletter writer to help out her friend "Jesse" who suffers from chronic pain. Dr. Hinton proceeds to treat the patient without examining him for pain (even though pain management is not his medical specialty!) He does this because he is convinced that "Jesse" is really Elvis. "Jesse" then begins corresponding with Dr. Hinton, sending him gifts purportedly that belonged to him when he was still "THE KING." "Jesse" wants Dr. Hinton (a doctor, not a writer or journalist!) to write a book to his fans explaining that he is still alive and that he faked his death. My problem is that this is not the way anyone with any common sense would expect Elvis Presley to come out of his "faked death seclusion." I would expect something more along the lines of a Barbera Walters interview and mass media hysteria, than a small, 75 page, cheaply made paperback book. There may be some compelling information in the book for those who want to believe Elvis is still alive; however, there are numerous discrepencies and contradictions in "Jesse's" handwritten letters (the photocopies of which, show a remarkable resemblance in handwriting to that of Dr. Hinton's wife! - who also contributes a handwritten "testimony" at the end of the book.) I don't pretend to know whether Elvis is dead or alive, but this book certainly did not help me any in my quest for the truth.

Format: Paperback
I don't beleive the content of the book. Why? Because the Missouri Board of Healing Arts in Jefferson City, Missouri did a full investigation of the "mysterious patient". Here is what they released as results: Dr Hinton was writing painkiller prescriptions for a WOMAN, her initials are "LS" according to the released report. He wrote her 34,000 units of painkillers over several years, falsefied his records as to amounts given her, funnelled the drugs thru 8 different pharmacies so the volumn wouldn't be noticed. This is a HUGE amount of painkillers-no one person could take them all at one time and live. The Dr. had not even contacted the patient's previous doctors to get meducal records or consult on the patient's history. It was all done over the phone, not based on office visits to Hinton's office-there were none! The board made the doctor sign a "settlement" agreement with the State of Missouri. Where did the drugs really go? Ever wonder how drugs get into schools, bars, parties when they are manufactured under tight controls and available only from a pharmacy? Maybe this is how! The doctor didn't tell the truth and falsefied his medical records-therefore I don't trust a word he says.

For as long as I remember Elvis was always there for me. I grew up watching his movies, sometimes going by myself just to spend the afternoon with his presence on the big screen. I spent countless hours listening to his music fitting the songs to my moods. Then I met my husband who was a fan also and we enjoyed together the music that we both loved. Then the kids came and they were raised with Elvis as an influence on their lives. We managed to make it to some of his concerts and enjoyed every treasured moment.
Then Aug. 1977 came along and left us heartbroken. Something had been taken from us that we assumed would always be there. Soon the world was flooded with the opportunists taking advantage of the death of a great man. We could not buy the merchandise just to see these people prosper with their questionable motives. We couldn't watch an Elvis impersonater. Why would we? There is only one.
Then one day in the 1980s' a T.V. special called the Elvis files aired with Bill Bixby and opened up a number of possibilites, some of which we had often wondered about ourselves. We talked about a lot of theories and did a lot thinking on the subject as I'm sure a lot of people did.
Now something else has come along that should put everything in the proper perspective. Dr. Hintons' book should be taken seriously for all the longtime and long suffering fans that still feel a sense a loss. Just take a look into the eyes of Jesse/Elvis holding his grandson and the truth will be known in your heart at last.
