A fascinating new book, 'Destined to Die Young' is the definitive examination of why the world lost Elvis Presley on August 16, 1977, when he was only forty-two years old. Author Sally Hoedel has painstakingly researched the subject and offers factual and scientific data - plus never-before-published information she gained by interviewing people who personally knew Elvis - to support her claim that Elvis Presley was never going to live a long life.
In this well-documented book, Hoedel explores how prescription medication was only one aspect of his compromised health and did not ultimately cause his demise. She examines Elvis Presley — a son, husband, father, and devoted friend — while ploughing through the negative hype and legendary myths surrounding the man. Elvis’ downward spiral of health struggles is presented and, for the first time ever, it is revealed that he suffered from disease in nine of eleven bodily systems, five of which were present from birth. This book dispels the long-held theory that abuse of prescription drugs is what killed Elvis.
Author Sally Hoedel interviewed many people close to Elvis for instance nurse Tish Henley Kirk who noted, “One show, they weighed his suit before and after. It weighed eight pounds more after the show, and he still had an evening show to do. We were in a different town all the time. I wasn’t up there doing the shows and wearing myself out like he was. Dr. Nick and I both knew how exhausted we got and we didn’t do a tenth of what Elvis did.”
Destined to Die Young is for anyone who is curious to know the true story of one of the world’s most famous cultural icons. For longtime Elvis Presley fans, it provides answers to lingering questions surrounding his death. You may be surprised to learn that, based on
Elvis Presley’s family history and the genes he was dealt, nothing could have saved the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll.
