Editorial Reviews


“Reading these diaries, Americans will find it easier to understand how Reagan did what he did for so long: by steady work, and a steadfast commitment to the job at hand. . . . They paint a portrait of a president who was engaged by his job and had a healthy perspective on power.” (Jon Meacham, Newsweek)

“The chief executive who emerges from these pages has a capacious attention to and knowledge of this country and the world. . . . Reagan the diarist is at home with himself, unself-consciously comfortable. . . . Two things run through the diaries like a thread: One is a kind of gee-whiz everyman’s delight in finding himself in such interesting and enjoyable circumstances; the other is his love for and reliance on Nancy.” (Tim Rutten, The Los Angeles Times)

“These are amusing and enlightening diaries. . . . I quite simply couldn’t put them down.” (Christopher Hitchens, The Times)

“It’s amazing what nuggets of information you can unearth deep within a book as jampacked as The Reagan Diaries.” (Walter Pincus, The Washington Post)

“The book offers a window into the mind of the nation’s 40th president and displays the effort he made behind the scenes to hone his performance as a speechmaker and storyteller driving home a conservative political philosophy.” (USA Today)

“This volume provides an illuminating glimpse into Reagan’s mind. . . . The entries show the directness of Reagan’s thought and his uncanny ability to make a point.” (The Daily)

“These notes are wonderful things. . . . Although a few recent books have proclaimed to have finally uncovered the real Reagan, there’s a chance we’ll never get any closer than in these scribbles, which reveal so much.” (Christopher Buckley, Bloomberg News)

“Now with the discovery of his note cards, we can better appreciate just how hard Reagan himself labored to be clear and convincing―and, yes, sometimes funny―to his many audiences.” (The American Spectator)

“This is a book to return to often and sample the collected wisdom found there that buttressed a remarkable man’s vision.” (The Washington Times)

From the Back Cover

Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, The Notes is a fascinating window into the mind of our fortieth president. While the #1 New York Times bestselling Reagan Diaries detailed daily life inside the Oval Office, The Notes encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family. Classic one-liners such as "Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors" and "Money may not buy friends, but it will help you to stay in contact with your children" shed light on the man known as the "Great Communicator," and a sampling of Reagan's favorite speeches, poems, and passages from literature reveal the writers and thinkers he turned to time and again for advice, inspiration, humor, and hope.

Historic, illuminating, and deeply captivating, The Notes is a remarkable collection of the thoughts of one of our most beloved presidents.
