    Elvis Expert Talks About Most Important Book Written About Elvis Presley.

    Los Angeles, CA (CNS) - Even though musical legend Elvis Presley is gone, many questions about him still remain. That's why Elvis expert Cory Cooper is claiming that the book by Patrick Lacy entitled, "Elvis Decoded: A Fan's Guide to Deciphering the Myths and Misinformation," is one of the most important books written about The King.

    Cooper told Celebrity News Service, "There has been so much wrong, misleading and confusing material written over the years about this very talented, unique and innovating icon," he said regarding information compiled about Elvis.

    "Mr. Lacy has accomplished an impressive amount of research and effort to sort out and decipher the mountain of conflicting and misguided information. He explains why and how this might have evolved to begin with and allows the reader to form their own conclusion based on his research," Cooper said in an exclusive interview with Celebrity News Service.

    Cooper said that many people want to know about Elvis's personal life, what he did for fun, the music he enjoyed and what he might be doing today had he lived. And then, of course, there are the famous "Alive" theories.

    "This topic is part of the reason Patrick Lacy decided to write "Elvis Decoded" to begin with," Cooper said. "Although Mr. Lacy does address this topic, his book covers much more than just the death hoax stories."

    Cooper said he became an Elvis fan at a young age, reading and studying everything he could get his hands on that had to do with Elvis. At one point he heard a radio talk show host speaking about Elvis and they mentioned many things that were wrong.

    "I called the radio station, they put me on the air and I corrected the host on his errors. That led to many more local and nationally syndicated radio programs, consulting on Elvis projects, guest writing for an Elvis publication and meeting and becoming friends with a wealth of people from the Elvis inner circle including his friends, bodyguards, co-stars, family members, band members and Elvis fans from all over the world," Cooper told Celebrity News Service.

    I have this book. While it did contain a lot of "stuff", IMO, it was also confusing. {but, Elvis always confused me. }

    I have a friend that talks to Patrick all the time. I just never liked him .
    {not to worry, he knows }
    IF you've been in the Elvis World a very long time; it raises a few questions.
    For any novice fan, I just feel he tried to cover too much in one book.

    My sentiments exactly, Cameron.

    I liked this book and i think Patrick Lacy did a good but anyway there´s not much you can do when people chose to believe something. I bought it only out of curiosity because i´m not the kind of person who seeks misteries in details that i dont see relevant or important for the outcome of events.

    I sorta liked this book too. I just don't like Patrick.
    There are many things in there that IMO, had little to do with Elvis.
    Unless you'd been involved and/or read about some of the topics; many would hane no clue what he was talking about.

    With my friends ; he's re-thinking some of his "conclusions."
    I'm glad, as he has the means to get some things out to the public.

    Shoot, he created some new questions . And I have enough !

    Here's an interview Patrick did:

    That's a nice way of putting it.
