Description

From acclaimed presidential historian and best-selling author Richard Reeves comes an enlightening and informative biography of Americas 40th president, Ronald Reagan. Drawing from extensive notes, records, and letters, Reeves captures eight years in the Oval Office with this remarkably intimate portrait. Reagan was a bold president whose vision included a new world order and a fresh definition of the office he held. He sought to reduce taxes, destroy communism, and restore American patriotism in an increasingly troubled world. A man who advocated smaller government, Reagan also expanded the power of the Executive Office and scholars still disagree about how he used this new power. Ultimately, Reagan emerged as a dynamic and crafty politician whose legacy will long be felt. Bolstered by authoritative research and the authors personal knowledge of his subject, President Reagan will stand the test of time as the definitive biography of Ronald Reagan.

Professional reviews

"Actor and comedian George Wilson delivers a surprising right-on impersonation of Ronald Reagan whenever the latter is quoted, which is frequently. It's a Reagan who sounds a little tired and subdued much of the time because, in fact, he was, beginning with the near-assassination he experienced early in his presidency. The rest of Wilson's narration is well done, comforting, and exact, even the many foreign names and phrases. Reeves offers us a generally positive portrait of President Reagan, a president who learned from his mistakes. Further, Reagan grasped the fact that words are often more effective than deeds, and he was a complete spoken wordsmith. He, with Mikhail Gorbachev, remade the world. D.R.W.
