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.

    " It was very eye opening as to what kind of a president Reagan really was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chad | 3/24/2012

    " A slanted perspective on President Reagan with a transparent agenda. At least the author discloses his dislike for Reagan up front. "

    " This was a pretty good read about President Reagan's presidency, the good and the bad. He had an amazing 8 years in the White House as I assume that every president does. I felt it was a pretty fair assessment of his 8 years in office. "

    " Excellent tour through Ronald Regan's presidency. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 1/20/2011

    " Pretty good book although very long. About half of Bill Clinton's book though. Very insightful and easy to tell when fact is being represented and when the author's viewpoint is represented. If you're into our Presidents' biographies this is a good one on Reagan. "

    " Here's the detailed account of Ronald Reagan's presidency...the highs and lows...the good, bad and indifferent. Very fair assessment of what went right and what went wrong. It is just amazin' how effective a president Reagan turned out to be! "

    " To his credit, the author admits upfront that he has a liberal bias. Still, that bias colored this book enough that it felt less than objective. "
