To put it bluntly....both the book and DVD are worth reading and watching! I've always had a high amount of respect for Sonny and this book and DVD just made me like him more. I hope that someday I'll get to meet him in person and thank him for "still taking care of business" regarding Elvis's legacy.
Sonny is a hero in my eyes simply because he had the guts (as did Red) to stand up to Elvis and try to make him see what he was doing to himself with the drugs...he and Red and Dave got unceremoniously dumped for trying to help Elvis and I don't blame him or Red or Dave one second for writing the first book.
In a nutshell....GET THE BOOK AND DVD--IT'S DEFINITELY WORTH IT!
