If you are looking for a good book about Reagan's career in film, or about his accomplishments as president, don't look at this book. If you want an opinionated, anti-Reagan diatribe, Here it is.

Unless you're a closet communist who despises Ronald Reagan for bringing the Soviet Union to its knees, stay away from this hit piece. He ridicules everything about Reagan's career, but seems more intent on ridiculing his political career. The parts of the book that I know something about are poorly researched (for example, he writes about Reagan's radio 'visualization' of baseball games, something he was especially good at, but never even mentions the man who made that type of broadcasting mainstream, Gordon MacLendon.) His attacks on the veracity of some of Reagan's anecdotes seem to be supported only by the inability of another individual (Gary Wills) was unable to substantiate the story. he could be correct, of course, but the nastiness of Schicke's writing makes one less likely to seriously consider his points than to find him and slap him silly. He seems so intent on making fun of Reagan that he loses his objectivity and his focus on his own job: informing and entertaining. I was not amused, and won't bother reading anything else written by this hack. Fortunately, I got this book as a 'freebie' on Amazon.com, and that's exactly what I consider it to be worth: nothing.

I felt that this author was making fun of one of the best presidents we ever had. It was almost as if he were saying that Reagan just treated his presidency as a role in a movie and a B movie at that.
