"A joyous and surprisingly moving nostalgia ride, this beautiful book also includes a large and captivating section of Le Hénanff’s roughs, sketches, reference layouts, preliminary paintings and storyboards venerating and revealing the creation of ‘Elvis: the King’." – Win Wiacek

This book exists mainly as a vehicle for Le Henanff to showcase his photorealistic painting style, which, while beautiful, is impeded by Chanoinat’s writing; the two do not work together in any interesting way. As a coffee table art book, Le Henanff’s work is a lush success; as a graphic biography, Chanoinat’s is a failure.
