Elvis Presley
Books He Read

This list of books was given to us by Larry Geller, Elvis' intimate spiritual advisor. Mr. Geller has been a long time personal friend and customer of the Bodhi Tree Bookstore. These titles represent some of the books mentioned in his book If I Can Dream - Elvis' Own Story (now out-of-print). We cannot be sure that Elvis read all of these books, but they concern subjects he was deeply interested in and felt were important to his daily life.

  The Impersonal Life is described as Elvis’ favorite book next to the Bible and the one whose "teaching, practice, and discipline transformed his life". An edition of the The Impersonal Life, published in 2001, is listed as the "Graceland Edition" and contains a short preface describing Elvis’s spiritual aspirations and an introduction explaining the organization of the book and how to use it.   Book Cover of The Impersonal Life
