From The Oleander Collection 

The cover of this yellow paperback book entitled Three Magic Words, by U.S. Andersen, depicts the title escaping in a plume of smoke from a genie’s bottle and draws the reader in with the claim, “This is a book about the greatest idea in the world - a splendid secret revealed in just three words - an idea so simple, so startling, so wonderful that it can start you on an adventure that you will bring you everything you ever wanted. If you read this remarkable book through, and do what it tells you to do, you cannot fail to accomplish what it promises!” The back cover suggests other tomes with titles like Psycho-Cybernetics, A Practical Guide to Self-Hypnosis, A Guide to Rational Living, A Guide to Successful Marriage and How You Can Have Confidence & Power, titles that might give a hint as to the type of subject matter addressed within. Uell Stanley Andersen first published these essays in 1954 and the inspirational text provides the reader with the knowledge that the power is within you, and the key to power, peace and plenty lies in our own thoughts. A writing that would have appealed to Elvis’ spiritual nature, this copy belonged to Elvis and comes with a letter on “Vernon Presley” TCB letterhead that reads, “This book ‘Three Magic Words’ belonged to Elvis Presley and was given to me by his father, Vernon Presley after Elvis’ death. Thanks, Patsy Presley.” This edition measures 8 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches (20.95 x 13.33 cm) and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The book’s cover is well-worn and several interior pages are separated from the binding. Very Good to Excellent condition.
