    Excerpt from Sonny West's new book...

    This was on EIN...

    franny

    The following excerpt (click on the link below) from "Elvis Still Taking Care of Business" has been sent to a number of Elvis websites including EIN. We will have two more excerpts from Sonny's book shortly.

    Sonny's book is due for release next month in hardcover format. It has 400 pages.

    Well, I was all for buying the book before but if its going to talk Politics maybe I'll pass. I always enjoyed the fact Elvis kept that as he said "to myself" . I like
    Elvis as much as anyone else here but I don't care to Hear what Sonny thinks Elvis would have thought about the War or any other current politics. Elvis is a place I go to escape from that stuff. I hope that what is said there is the extent of that topic in this book , if it isn't I'll pass.

    I don't think it will be about politics at all really, it looks like Sonny West is just mentioning a few different things in general...

    I think it will be interesting to read what he has to say! Last time, he wrote a book, it was more out of bitterness, but this time should be different...

    Wonderful, let's hope this is the beginning of healing wounds and mending fences.

    Sonny is obviously very much the man, to be admitting what he did, and fixing it.

    At first, I thought "Oh no!!!" but now it sounds like a "maybe" for me, I'll put it in my Amazon.com wish list & think about it some more. Will be keeping in touch to get forum reader reviews.

    From the small excerpt you can see there is humility between the lines, I really am looking forward to reading this book. I for one hope that Sonny Strikes a balance and doesn't go down the road of saccharin

    After having a pretty lengthy discussion with Sonny a couple of months ago, I believe the fans will find this book quite interesting and worth reading.

    I was going to buy it anyway if not just for Sonny not being associated with EPE and not having to meassure what he tells.

    Sounds like it will be a very interesting book! I was planning on reading it when it came out anyway, but now that I've read the excerpt, it really does sound like Sonny is trying to set the record straight, so to speak...

    Sonny was close to Elvis for many years. Despite of the Elvis What Happened-story, I think he loved Elvis and really cared for him. I?ll definately get his new book.

    I'll let Sonny do that lol

    I received an email from him this morning, and I'll be having him join us on the radio again sometime in the next month or so, so keep a watch out.

    I had to laugh when I read about the part of when Elvis was angry. It sounded sooo familiar. I know some people too that have the same emotions. They are caring and everything, but don't make them angry! So I don't think Elvis was an exception to the rule for as we know he could be very emotional.

    Hey Steve, thanks for the info. I will looking forward to it!
    America has contributed four things to the world that are really unique: Baseball, Coca-Cola, Mickey Mouse and Elvis Presley. And only one of them is human - - Jerry Hopkins - "Elvis" - A Biography.

    I?ve bought this book last week in Memphis. So far, its one of better books written by a Maffia member, and, in my opinion, mucht better that Jerry Schillings book. Lots of great stories, only dissapointing were the pictures. Most of them are very familiar. But, i?m sure lots of Elvis fans will love this book. And Sonny sounds very sincere.
