In light of President Ronald Regan's recent 100th birthday, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, his wife Callista Gingrich, and film maker David N. Bossie have created a unique collection of dynamic photographs providing readers with an inspiring look into the life and legacy of one of the world's greatest leaders. Inspired by their film Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous With Destiny, the authors present a plethora of powerful photographs illustrating Reagan's momentous life journey before, during, and after his time served as the 40th President of the United States. From rare photos of Regan's childhood to his last days battling Alzheimer's at Rancho del Cielo, Rendezvous With Destiny encompasses the chapters or Reagan's life and incorporates his journey to the presidency, his battle to save the economy, and his inspirational victories over the Soviet Union and Communism. With captions and quotes from Reagan's closest friends, colleagues, and the President himself, each photograph speaks volumes to not only the most significant moments in Regan's life, but also the instances in which he helped shape the course of the entire world. The book also provides readers with a behind the scenes view of the filming of Rendezvous With Destiny. Overall, the authors do an exceptional job capturing Ronald Reagan as a person, a husband, a professional, a president, and most importantly, a man who remained true to his principles, inspired his country through selfless dedication, and made a profound impact on the entire world. After reading Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous With Destiny, readers will understand the magnitude of Reagan's life and find renewed inspiration from the President's beliefs, actions, accomplishments, and way of life.

More than a thousand books have been written about Ronald Reagan and many more will be. However, right now we are celebrating his one hundredth birthday. There are many still alive who worked with him and millions of us who remember his Presidency. It is up to us to keep the legacy and truth about what he accomplished living in the hearts and minds of the coming generations. Heaven knows the media and our public schools are doing all they can to distort what he did and twist his values.

Newt Gingrich, his wife Callista, and film maker David Bossie have done a documentary film they call "Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny" and this book is part of that project. This is a picture book of Reagan's life and is divided into his life before becoming President, his two terms in office, and his farewell. There is also a section of photos on the making of the film.

Each of the pictures not only has a caption, but a quote from Reagan, someone who knew him, or an apt observation about him. This would be an ideal book to flip through with someone of the younger generations to help them learn and appreciate what a great President Reagan was. I am so glad the selection here includes an emphasis on the close working relationship Reagan had with Pope John Paul II and Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the pressure they brought to bear on the USSR. This is a story the Progressives try desperately to not talk about and when forced to, they misrepresent reality tremendously. Those of us who lived through the Cold War need to keep the flame of truth alive.

The pictures are clear and most are in color. Obviously, the early years are in black and white.

Newt and Callista Gingrich have done it again. They've produced another moving tribute to Ronald Reagan in their picture-book, Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny. The book is filled with over 100 images and brief descriptions of Reagan's life, from childhood through the fall of the Berlin Wall and his triumph over communism.

The most interesting part of the books isn't his presidency or the incredible political feats he accomplished, but rather the insight that Newt and Callista offer in to his childhood and early life in Illinois, as well as his marriage to his wife, Nancy. The book shows us Reagan's family, his acting career and the budding romance between him and Nancy which has come to be immortalized in the American psyche.

Callista Gingrich's photography is tremendous as always, and she offers us real insight in to how they made their documentary by the same title. I can only imagine how moving it must have been to talk about Reagan and his legacy with the very people, both here in the United States and internationally (such as Lech Walesa), who were so integral in helping Reagan accomplish one of his primary goals: the defeat of Russian communism and the liberation of Europe and much of the world.

More than any of their work so far, Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny offers readers a front row seat to the Gipper's life, loves and historical significance. This is a must read for any Reagan enthusiast and a must read for all fans of the couple who continue to offer conservatives what we need more than ever: reminding about the man who built the modern conservative movement and changed history- President Ronald Reagan.
