Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Did Rush Limbaugh's best-sellers fly off your shelves? Does right-wing talk radio kill the competition in your media market? If so, you will probably need multiple copies of this collection of "bold exposes" from Ronald Reagan's talk-host son. To no one's astonishment, the younger Reagan bashes the Clintons, the media, liberals, affirmative action, and the United Nations, and glorifies his father, fatherhood in general, the GOP, conservatives, and the "new Reagan Revolution" : his "24-hour, two-way interchange" linking "We the People" to government though Reagan's three-hour weeknight talk show, his monthly newsletter, and his Internet web site. Yes, Making Waves constitutes self-promotion (and will itself be widely promoted by the publisher). Yes, this volume's "exposes" rely heavily on sources--like Clinton-hater Larry Nichols--whom many observers, at least some of them conservative, consider undependable at best. Still, readers who share Reagan's ultraconservative views and visceral anger at all who disagree will no doubt relish this chance to peruse his vituperation at their leisure. (Jim Denney "poured my thoughts onto paper with passion and skill," per Reagan's acknowledgments.) Mary Carroll

Full of typical ultra conservative lies. Quotes known Clinton haters with - as the editorial introduction concedes - are highly lacking in credibility and proves the adage that "liars figure and figures lie" in his use of numbers and stats.

I can see why this book ranks at almost the six million mark in its ranking for Amazon sales and books are available from multiples at ONE cent to 84 cents maximum - with even "collector editions" for less than $3.00... and only having six prior reviews!

Funny that in his books "The Hand of God" and (I believe it's title is) "The Eye of God" almost all of the quotes that he uses are from liberal / universalist type Spiritual Believers - and NOT from fundamentalist conservative religious leaders. Almost universally the quotes are from liberal scientists, intellectuals, philosophers, mystics and even poets whose discoveries and philosophies, etc. tended to strongly oppose the conservative fundamentalist view and often presented scientific facts that diluted the typical "far right born again" position (i.e., Albert Einstein was a consistent progressive liberal, not a "far right born again"... News update: the vast majority of liberals and progressives are spiritual and believe in a Creator with many being formal Christians, just not of the "hellfire and damnation, far right born again" type!).

Fortunately, God still Loves him anyway and WILL save him (see "If Grace is True" by Gulley and Mulholland and "God's Inescapable Love" by Talbott and even "Love Wins" by Rob Bell... but especially the first one!).

Mike Reagan's book is as timely in 2005 as it was when it was written in 1996. From the One World Government to the Clinton friends death list to our inability to defend ourselves in the event of a nuclear war, it's all there. This book can be read a chapter at a time, in no particular sequence because each chapter has a seperate message. It is a must for all people, you can differ with Mike's views, but let's have a national discussion about the important issues rather than the leftists trying to stop everything that isn't run by the government.

It is hard to make you father proud and especially when your father is the President of the United States. Micheal Reagan penned his thoughts as a talk radio show host in Making Waves: Bold Exposés from Talk Radio's Number One Nighttime Host.
Reagan opens up about the struggle to find his niche in life and once he did how challenging it was to get to it.
You would think having a name like Reagan would open doors automatically, not so according the Micheal. He did not know it at the time, but his real break was to read copy on the number one radio dial in San Diego. He then slowly moved up the radio dial until he got a spot.
Reagan shares his thoughts on the Clinton scandels, Newt's House Revolution, and the need for tax reform. He also delves into his father's illness and how he has strived to be a better father.
In the end, on his points out how on his first day to read the news he go a call from his old man. "I'm a little far away hear in Washington to pick up your program, but I just wanted to congratulate you on your first day and wish you well" quipped the Gipper. They talked about his last visit to Camp David and his bittersweet parting from the White House, and planned return to California immediately after the Bush inaugural. Most importantly that call gave Micheal a boast that his dad was proud of him.
A joy to read, Making Waves: Bold Exposés from Talk Radio's Number One Nighttime Host is quick read into America's former first son Micheal Reagan.

I'm reading Michael Reagan's book "Making Waves" now. The chapter that covers the various alternative tax systems needs to be updated. When Michael Reagan wrote this book (1996), the FairTax was just getting started. He talks about the "National Sales Tax" idea, and points out several (4 as I recall) flaws with the plan. Since his book was written, all of these "flaws" have been researched, considered, and taken care of. For example, the FairTax "prebate" plan totally untaxes the poor, by giving every legal person (but not illegals) in the US a check (or debit account deposit) each month. This ammount is negligible to the super rich, but again, completely untaxes the poor. I'd like to see Michael Reagan reconsider this chapter in his book and update it with new information since it's first edition.
