09 Oct A Book Review of ELVIS: The Last 24 Hours by Albert Goldman
I give this book 5 stars. It is a book about Elvis and his last days of drug addiction. It is 208 pages long and the first addition was published on 1991. Amazon.com has the book for sale for only $6.45 a copy.
First, let me discuss a little bit about the author. Albert Goldman was an American author and professor. He wrote some bestselling books about Lenny Bruce, Elvis Presley and John Lennon. He earned a master’s degree in English from the University of Chicago and a PhD at Columbia University.
His controversial book entitled, “ELVIS: The Last 24 Hours” was about the authors opinion of how Elvis died. He believed that Elvis committed suicide. In the book, he describes events that he believes took place that pointed to a suicide. As you can imagine, the book drew both sensation and criticism. It is a good book to read for anyone dealing with alcohol and drug abuse. It will give you a different perspective of what possibly happens when a person gets addicted to a substance.
If you are into controversial topics, you will love this book. Elvis is usually seen as the rock star that accidentally overdosed on drugs. The author of this book gives us a different perspective. In the book, the author describes Elvis losing control over his bowel movements because of drug use and other ailments. The truth of the matter is that if you lover controversy, you will love this book. Check out this video below of author Albert Goldman receiving backlash for his book.
