Description

Behind-the-scenes anecdotes and first-person recollections from forty-nine diverse people illuminate their personal relationships with Ronald Reagan. What was Ronald Reagan like in private? How did he treat his children? How did he handle pressure? This collection of intimate remembrances of the late President's staffers, colleagues, and friends sheds new light on the life and career of the immortal "Gipper." See how Reagan used humor to disarm his most ardent critics and tenacious opponents. Marvel at his gift for persuading difficult, almost impossible to deal with legislators. Learn 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 first campaign for president of the United States in 1968. Many of author Curtis Patrick's interview subjects were members of Reagan's original 1966 campaign for governor of California. Some came aboard soon after the election and were appointed to fill key positions in the governor's cabinet and to head up state agencies and departments. For the most part, except in a few cases, these interviewees had never been recorded or published before. "Curtis, I not only like your book; I love it!" -Edwin Meese III, former US attorney general
