In 1955, at age 20, Elvis provoked his first near-riot when he sang at a baseball park in Jacksonville. Inspired by black gospel quartets and mentored by producer Sam Phillips, Elvis blended hillbilly music with rhythm and blues in a synthesis that defined a new direction for popular music. Mason's book gets at the consciousness of the icon and of the cultural climate that made him one.

The book srarted slow as I didnt care for the narrator. As I continued listening, the book became a lot more interesting and I forgot about narration n found myself wanting to see what was going to happen next.
