Format: Paperback
The evidence is very compelling, especially the photograph of old Elvis with his grandson, which I assume is one of Lisa Marie's children. I actually compared that to a young elvis photograph. If you look around the eyebrows and the bridge of the nose, as well as the ball shape of his cheekbones, there's a definite resemblence, even after plastic surgery (perhaps the reason he says in one of his letters that he's unsatisfied with the plastic surgery job he got).
It makes you wonder, what did Elvis think of Lisa Marie and Michael Jackson? What did he think of Lisa Marie and Nicolas Cage? Did they break up because Elvis didn't approve? Has Nicolas Cage met Elvis?
True, there probably aren't dental records for his gold tooth removal. If you were a dentist, would YOU want that kind of record? No, they'd think you were nuttier than a payday candy bar. The dentist probably said let's just keep this little transaction to ourselves.
Dr. Hinton seems very honest and sincere, I mean he's a psychiatrist, he's worked hard to get where he is, do you think he would sacrifice potentially his license to practice psychiatry to write a book saying he thinks Elvis is alive? Dr. Hinton knew the right people, and he was in the right place at the right time. Elvis (Jesse) wanted to tell his fans the truth, and Dr. Hinton was his writer. Great job Dr. Hinton, write another one!

I absoulutely love this book! It is indeed a must read for all elvis presley fans! I've never been interested in Elvis, but this book grabbed my interest entirely! Mr. Hinton has pictures, and detailed letters in the book that are actually real!! Call me crazy but I belive him!!! Elvis also wrote a heartfelt introduction to his fans about why he did what he did. I DEFINATLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK (To non-elvis fans as well)

I believe this entire book is a sham.
Where Do I begin?
After reading it, looking at the presented "evidence", I have concluded that absolutely nothing presented would lead ANYONE to think Elvis is alive.
Here are the facts: they justify the physical appearance being wrong by saying Elvis had plastic surgery in the 80's and a stroke last year (02), they justify his lack of DNA and fingerprints by saying NO real Elvis DNA exists, so we cannot compare it to anything. They say Lisa Marie loves her dad, and she believes it's really him, but then say she is not willing to provide DNA to prove it's him.
They provide a hair sample to the Doctor, KNOWING he will never be able to prove its from Elvis. It might be poodle hair as far as he knows.
They say it's over money, and Elvis Presley Enterprises is concealing the truth. And o yeah, "they" don't trust "Jesse" with any cash, so he has to live off other people. So he is a nomad, traveling around, alone and broke, hoping his "true" fans will care for him.
My take is that we have a impersonator from the 80's, who made a lot of money pretending to be Elvis, singing, waving, and dancing, then he got old and thought, gee wheeze, I had this surgery, and now I look old and hideous, so I might as well continue my charade. Yeah, that's the ticket, and on top that, I am not going to work for the rest of my life, because I am going to find idiots who think I'm Elvis and support me.
Fact: No where in this book does Dr. Hinton say he has ACTUALLY MET this guy. (Dr. Hinton has, however, given money and plenty of drugs to this guy though) To be fair though, "Jesse" has provided memorabilia that belonged to Elvis. To be unfair, it is complete junk you can buy in the Graceland plaza for ten bucks.

I don't beleive the content of the book. Why? Because the Missouri Board of Healing Arts in Jefferson City, Missouri did a full investigation of the "mysterious patient". Here is what they released as results: Dr Hinton was writing painkiller prescriptions for a WOMAN, her initials are "LS" according to the released report. He wrote her 34,000 units of painkillers over several years, falsefied his records as to amounts given her, funnelled the drugs thru 8 different pharmacies so the volumn wouldn't be noticed. This is a HUGE amount of painkillers-no one person could take them all at one time and live. The Dr. had not even contacted the patient's previous doctors to get meducal records or consult on the patient's history. It was all done over the phone, not based on office visits to Hinton's office-there were none! The board made the doctor sign a "settlement" agreement with the State of Missouri. Where did the drugs really go? Ever wonder how drugs get into schools, bars, parties when they are manufactured under tight controls and available only from a pharmacy? Maybe this is how! The doctor didn't tell the truth and falsefied his medical records-therefore I don't trust a word he says.

i read this book because i often wonder if Elvis is still alive.. I did not find it convincing enough for me to take what it says at face value.. the pics don't really prove anything as the Dr could have taken them at Graceland or some museum for all we know and not even have them in his personal possession as none of the pic's have the Dr in them .. and i don't understand why Elvis himself doesn't just come out of hiding if he is indeed alive.. WELL maybe i do understand... not only that, is the Dr trying to say that Vernon and others would not be able to tell if Elvis was in the coffin?? he would know his own son would he not? or whether it was just a wax figure, come on..if he is this Jesse in the book, now i would say to him as a fan and concerned person: that he is not his brother, he is who God made him to be," Elvis" and he should be proud of that! if God meant Jesse too live, he would have but he chose to let Elvis live so there is a reason, so i hope if Elvis is still out there that he finds the truth again about how Jesus wants to help him out of this hole he finds himself in now and God i hope he gets out and finds his PEACE because he deserves it and i know that peace only comes from God and nothing else, E we love you wherever you are, please come home!
