I have not been able to find another book that so clearly defines President Reagan's core beliefs and how #40 used these guiding principles to end the Cold War, revive a dreadful Carter economy, and strengthen our nation as never before.

Anyone who identifies themselves as a Conservative (or even a Republican) must read this book. Not only does it offer great insight into Reagan, it also equips us with a strong foundation of beliefs to begin to take America back--back to what the Founders envisioned this great nation to be. Plus, it will give you great strength when you are trying to peacefully debate a socialist/liberal. I promise, they will have no reasonable answers to these 11 principles.

This book reads fast and is relatively short--a couple of hundred pages.

Great book! I highly recommend it.

I was an undergrad when my first presidential election rolled around; I chose Reagan because he truly was a "Great Communicator". While I did not agree with every decision he made, I experienced the tremendous economic boom that "Reaganomics" created throughout the 1980s & well into the 1990s...having a great lifestyle was never as easy as it was then, thanks to Reagan's conservative outlook & leadership!

Our Constitution was constructed by our Founding Fathers as a guide for a Republic, & Reagan understood this very well: These 11 conservative principles are well-delineated by Paul Kengor, & I am grateful to read them. It's fine to be reminded that while the greatness of our country may wax & wane, these principles do not :)

Anyone who wants to better understand what principles guided President Reagan, anyone who is interested in a very prosperous time in our recent history, & anyone who wants to learn how to exemplify these principles in their daily lives will find this book fascinating :)

One of the more puzzling aspects of the LLO (i.e., Laughable Leftist Orthodoxy) is the continued delusion that there is a so-called "Reagan Myth." Somewhere within the decaying and desolate landscape that is the collective Liberal intellect resides an actual definition of what it is. The discerning mind can guess but I believe it is simply a "bumper sticker" fabricated by Liberals that cannot credibly diminish RR's record, historical reputation and personal character without lying or personally attacking those who would defend it. Promoting this mythological "myth" is their way of trying to "win" the debate on the Reagan legacy through a collective affirmation of fools who never actually study it - they just believe what they want to believe.

The antidote for this wishful-thinking deception is what Paul Kengor has done with this book: continuously remind or tell others what a successful President was like and why. It is an easily-read and referenced illustration of how structured conviction, intellectual depth, well-reasoned policies, compromise and superb negotiating abilities can create leadership that can change the nation and world for the better. More significantly, it demonstrates how such attributes can be applied today to address issues and problems that our current leadership appears utterly incapable of resolving. Reagan's personal character, convictions, and transformational success as president provide a solid example that such challenges are not insoluble with determined, coherent leadership.

Despite the delusions of the Left, the record shows that Reagan was indeed a great president and remains one of the most referenced leaders in our history.

Filled with facts and information concerning the Gipper! I enjoyed the detail given in all the principles listed. Buying this book would not be a mistake in my humble opinion.

I thoroughly enjoyed the 11 principles of a Reagan conservative. Also, reading over some of his great speeches gives me such hope for our future. We must have more Reagan Conservatives. We must save our country from socialism. Enjoy this book - it is truly great reading.

A concise treatment of the timeless principles that formed the foundation of the Reagan political doctrine. It should be required reading for all elected Republican officials.

Makes me wish Reagan was here to save us again. To our younger audience I would recommend reading it to learn what you missed. To those who remember Ronnie, I recommend it to help remember what he stood for and why many liked him.

It is a pleasure to read anything that Paul Kengor writes, and "Principles" is a natural follow up to what I'll call, "Reagan, the Crusader," the very best book I've read on the fall of the Soviet Union. Put that one together with "Principles" and "The Judge," and a discerning reader will have a complete picture of Reagan as President, Friend, and Visionary. Don't miss this one.
