In 1982, Peter Robinson was hired as a speechwriter in the Reagan White House. One of a core group of writers who became informal experts on Reagan, Robinson absorbed not just the president's politics but his manner and way of carrying himself. And the example Reagan set, as a confident, principled, generous-spirited older man who inspired those around him, molded Robinson just as he was coming into his own. The longer I studied Ronald Reagan, he says, the more lessons I learned. At the core of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life are ten life lessons Robinson learned from Reagan: principles that have guided his own life ever since. Yet it also offers a warm and unforgettable portrait of a great yet ordinary man who touched the individuals around him as surely as he did his millions of admirers around the world. The result is nothing less than a love story, an account of one man's profound respect and affection for the president who changed his life. Download and start listening now!
