Format: Paperback
I read this book and found it incredibly interesting! They did not portray Ronald Reagan as an idiot, he was an idea man but had no idea how to implement. He sold it! That was his job and that is what he was incredibly good at -America loved him. He had people to do the other stuff. At that time, I guess things were bad enough America needed a little of that. I did not agree with some of the things that went on though beginning with what they did to President Carter -holding the announcement about the hostages being released until after Reagan took the oath of office, even though they had been released earlier that morning. That was dirty. Anyway, this is an excellent book. It's not dry, or boring. It's not technical or hard to understand but it is full of details in an easy to understand format! I started taking notes in the front and back margins of the book! I am going to try another one of Bob Schieffer's books.

In a land where Ronald Reagan was worshipped as if he were the 13th apostle, this book was a beacon of honesty. He was a retired actor who wanted to be president & once he got there had no idea what to do. It was controversial in it's time & still interesting today.

This is a great book, especially now, when the Republican party is so intent on rewriting history and trying to pass off Ronald Reagan as such a good President. He was good at protraying a President, but really, what with Reaganomics, not such a good one. I myself consider him to be one of the worst as far as the AIDS victims are concerned. Good read, need to be reminded of how it really was, not how some in our country seem to "dream" it was.
