Intimate behind-the-scenes recollections of Ronald Reagan by those who knew him during his early political career in California-photos included! People often wonder: "What was Reagan like privately?" "How did he treat his children?" "How did he handle pressure?" "How did he handle danger?" "How did he treat his staff?" "How did he handle difficult, almost impossible to deal with, legislators?" This book collects reminiscences from those who were there, working in a wide variety of positions, recounting how the former actor, governor of California, and future president of the United States used humor to disarm his most ardent critics and tenacious opponents. In this book, you'll discover observations about the close bond between Ronald and Nancy Reagan; the gentlemanly character of the governor who "never equated disagreement with disloyalty;" the way Reagan thrived on being underestimated; the untold story behind the secret plan hatched by former Air Force Secretary Thomas C. Reed and a handful of dedicated insiders to launch Reagan's unequivocal, arguably first campaign for President of the United States in 1968; and much more.
