This book is not about conservatives¿ verses liberals, it¿s a piece of history that I¿m really enjoying. It¿s interesting to get a first hand look into his days in the White House, as well as read and understand his thought process. This is truly a great book that I think anyone who loves history will enjoy.

Few presidents have chronicaled their days in office, perhaps the greatest living president in our memory has. He's Ronald Reagan. I'm 44 pages into a book of 803 pages. This book is incredible, giving us an insightful view of what it means to hold and preserve the greatest office in the world. One of things you find unique in this day and time. Is RR dealt with the very same issues our current president is dealing with. The exception is RR didn't wait for polling to see what needed to be done. He just did it!!! IN this book you see RR as a human being, not really concerned how history would view him, he already knew. I'm convinced this man woke up every morning thinking how can I make the lives of Americans better. He was concerned about AMERICANS first. The lives of the other people in the world were secondary...this seems to be contarary to our current leaders. This is not a book you read at one sitting. Settle into a few pages at a time, you will find yourself falling into a presidency that you will wish we had now. If we are going to add an additional face to Mt Rushmore, lets hope and pray it will be Ronald Reagan.

    Get To Know What A President Goes Through

    Great for picking up and reading just about anywhere in the book. Fascinating historical detail and a deep look into the wonderful personality of one of our best presidents!

    My review.

    The first two or three years of the biography was very matter of fact. It was like I was reading an appointment book or an daily agenda of a business executive. Then to my surprise, on page 213, President Reagan also realizes this, and comments the diary was appearing like a log book, and that he should comment more on the particulars, and provide more insight. The second term of the President, is the most interesting part of the book. I wish Mr. Brinkley would have expanded the glossary. I kept having to go to my computer to "goggle" many names. Overall, President Reagan kept a fascinating account of his presidency.

    Reagan¿s voice shines through every page of this autobiography.

    Reagan’s voice shines through every page of this autobiography. What I appreciated most was the humble presentation of his endeavors. He never boasts of his successes but tempers each story with its failings. I was real surprised to read this.
