Top 10 Elvis Presley books

Robert Fontenot, Jr. is an entertainment critic and journalist, and the About.com guide to oldies music.

Number One on his top 10 list of Elvis Presley books:
"Elvis," Dave Marsh

There are a number of books that explore Elvis more intently from different viewpoints, but this is the only one to define him in all ways at once -- who he was as a person, why he rose, what he meant to music and culture, why he was so loved and hated, why he fell. As a result, this is the first book to buy if you're wondering what all the fuss was about, but there's plenty of thoughtful eulogy for hardcore fans, too. The stunning Bea Feitler photos are alone worth the price of purchase.
