    Ronald Reagan-

    Ronald Reagan has always been and continues to be my favorite president thus far. He faced an extraordinary amount of challenges and met them all head on. This book very clearly gives the reader enough information on Ronald Reagan's life and past to help one make an educated decision on the debate of whether he was a good president or not. Although I began reading this with a bit of bias, I finished it with a new outlook on what I believed.
    I HIGHLY recommend this- even if you're not one of Reagan's fans, it is a very interesting read that can help you gain perspective.

    D' Souza Depicts the Mystery Behind the Man

    Being a high school student having previously studied Reagan, I had learned all the basic fundamentals of his presidency. It was not until reading this book that I realized the amazing mystery behind a man with whom many Americans related so well. D'Souz portrayed Ronald Reagan in his many lights; the son of an alcoholic father, a determined actor, a laid-back president, and a relentess fighter for the future of our nation. Though D'Souza's supportive view of Reagan shines through, he allows for each reader's own interpretation. With each page of the book the reader can unmask the mystery behind one of the most celebrated Presidents of our time.

    Excellent Insights About a Truly Great Leader

    Whether you agree with Reagan's politics or not, this book is an incredible tutorial about leadership. Reagan's critics can complain all they want about the man's weaknesses, but they cannot refute the man's accomplishments. This book illustrates those accomlishmehts and what it takes to be a leader that actually makes a difference.

    Fascinating Insight of the Man, Ronald Reagan

    This was a fascinating insight about Ronald Reagan, his believes, and what enabled him to accomplished the impossible, the downfall of the Soviet Union. President Reagan adminsitration succeeded in many ways and also failed in someways. Nevertheless, regardless of what side of the isle you are on, President Reagan demonstrated a leadership that without question shaped the free world we now enjoy. Despite what the pundits have said or say today, President Reagan was for the average person on the street. He was a firm believer in removing the obstacles to propersity, hence intrusive government and burdensome taxes. Despite the criticism of SDI. What is surprising, 'is we do not have any way to defend the U.S. from a balistic missile attack'. A must read, if you want to appreciate the who, what, and why of Reagan.

    D'Souza Gets to the Heart of the Reagan Legacy

    For those who are looking at a good book to read on the life and legacy of America's great President Ronald Reagan, Dinesh D'Souza has written one of the most facinationg and instructive books. Here is a man, who unlike Edmund Morris, actually understood what Ronald Reagan and his conseravative movement was all about. I was able to meet Dinesh this past year as I hosted him as a speaker at Indiana Wesleyan University, and I have met few people who are able to see the Reagan Revolution as clearly as he. In his analysis, nobody really wants the legacy of Reagan to be seen because in all actuallity, he proved EVERYBODY wrong--both liberal and conservative. If you can only read one book on Reagan, read this one.

    The Hagiography of a Hollywood Thug

    Oh, Ronald Reagan was an ordinary man for sure. Very ordinary, and very Las Vegas-Hollywood circa 1956, though perhaps not as sleazy as the 'Rat Pack'. Ronald Reagan babbled about Central America, Dominoes, Commies,and the like. He seemed to have little idea about the areas of the world under discussion. But, then again, in his martini and black-tie world, such things are irrelevant.You should have seen (if you missed it) all the small businesses that closed and all the jobs which were lost under Reagan's watch---it was astounding.And the rich, feeling no ties to the 'common people' decided to really flaunt their wealth---just like the good old days of the 1890's.
