From the Back Cover

February 6, 2011, marks the one hundredth anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth. Known as "the Great Communicator," Ronald Reagan combined the best of small-town values and remarkable virtues with the eloquence and charm that came from a life spent in the public eye. From his early days, Reagan was a leader, whether saving lives as a lifeguard or demonstrating for students' rights as a college undergraduate. His career as a sports broadcaster and later as a leading man in Hollywood paved the way for a career in politics. As governor of California, Reagan earned the respect of world leaders and the American public. But it was as president of the United States that his strength of character, leadership, and love of country were best displayed. His eight years in the Oval Office ushered in remarkable change domestically and brought international peace, prosperity, and freedom.

A visual celebration of all that is Ronald Reagan, Ronald Reagan: 100 Years is the official centennial publication for the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. Inspiring and uplifting, it is a fitting homage to one of America's greatest legends. A foreword by former Senator Howard H. Baker, Jr., distinguished politician and personal friend of the Reagans, completes this handsome volume, making it a must-have nostalgic tribute to the life and times of the man who led our nation and inspired the world.

By Richard of Connecticut VINE VOICE on January 12, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Normally books like these are all the same. You have the obligatory photographs with narrative that maybe matches up with the pictures - NOT THIS TIME. This book just blew me away. I have read several biographies of the President Reagan, some great, and some not so great. Edmund Morris' effort failed for me when it entered the world of fantasy. In this book you have something different, just the feel of it alone was special. The quality of the paper that it was printed on was special also. The printing was exquisite, and the use of a Presidential blue color scheme was so fitting.

The photographs were not just a randomly selected collection. Time, energy, effort, and thought went into the selections. I was very impressed the way the photographs tied right into the narrative. Former Senator Howard Baker wrote an introduction and did a sterling job at it as well. At one point after the President's election, Baker tells the new President, I will be with you through the thin. The President inquires as to what about the thick of it? Baker replies, "Welcome to Washington, Mr. President."

The book is essentially divided into five sensible parts. They include:

Chapter I: The Lifesaver

Chapter II: The Leading Man

Chapter III: The Governor

Chapter IV: The President

Chapter V: The Legend

The chapter titles are self-explaining except for chapter I which deals with the future President as a young man. He is a lifeguard which is why the chapter is entitled "The Lifesaver". For Reagan the magic number was 77 which represented the number of lives he saved over several years.

One last thought if I may. If I had to choose one word to describe this book, it would be POIGNANT. You will be touched by this book.

This is a terrific tribute in recognition of the 100th birthday of President Reagan. This is a very easy to read book. I recommend it for anyone who is an admirer of President Reagan or for those who might be younger readers born after his term in office that would like to see highlights in words and pictures of his storied career instead of reading an entire long biography. It's not an in-depth book; it's not going to tell you anything new. But if you keep in mind this is intended as a tribute, you'll know what you're getting and it will be great reading.

This is a wonderful book, it arrived today. If you're a Reagan fan, or you know someone who is- this is the perfect gift. I'm impressed with the level of detail, both in the text and photos. The book is well designed, an easy read- whether you're reading a chapter here and there, or spending several hours on it. It's a welcome addition to my collection of Reagan books.

I am a big fan of Ronald Reagan, so when I received my book, I quickly looked through it and admired all the pictures. But when I finished, I was somewhat disappointed that there was no reference in the book about Reagan's Challenger disaster speech. I thought that was one of his most memorable speeches. Characteristic to Reagan's ability to connect with the people, he became the comforter-in-chief to a nation whose heart was broken. Other than that, I think the book serves as a fitting tribute to a remarkable man and one of our most effective Presidents. I highly recommend it.

As soon as this book was available I knew I had to get it. Based on the reviews alone I anticipated it would be well worth it and I wasn't disappointed. Having read quite a few other books on President Reagan I didn't expect to learn anything new but still was impressed with not only the stories but the super pictures that helped tell the story.
The book is very professionally done as one would expect considering its origin from the Reagan Library; it's well laid out and the quality of paper and binding are superb.
Even though some of the stories were familiar, the different perspectives of those relating them lent a freshness that was very welcome.
As a great admirer of our 40th. president I was very pleased with this book and am happy to add it to my growing collection.

With the recent passing of President Reagan's 100th birthday, a slew of books on the great man hit the book shelves. Sadly, the quality of most of them was pretty marginal. This book is definitely different!

This book looks at Reagan's career and legacy in an open and very approachable manner. Also, the book is chockfull of excellent pictures, many of them sized to fit the page. I found this to be a great book on our 40th President - I liked the narrative and I liked the pictures, what more can I say? Get this book!
