    The finest photo-book on Reagan today!

    President Ronald Reagan is one of my favorite Presidents and I believe this book truly captures his convictions and accomplishments better than any other picture book on the market.

    First off, the book's best accomplishment is the selection of photos and their spread - an eight-year Presidency will naturally produce thousands of photos, corresponded with hundreds of different events - the mastery of this book is that the authors have pieced together the most consequential moments of Reagan's Presidency and have seamlessly picked the best photographs to capture each moment.

    Secondly, my favorite additions to the book would be the personal photos between Speaker Newt Gingrich and President Reagan, as it is clear to see, from the pictures, that Speaker Gingrich saw Reagan as a major mentor, which likely propelled his strong leadership in his ascent to becoming our Speaker - an important point to consider as Gingrich currently seems to be contemplating a run for the Presidency in 2012.

    Lastly, any history-buff will naturally cherish this book - it captures the Reagan Presidency and America in an elegant and simple form, allowing the photographs to speak for themselves, in giving the reader the empowerment to interpret all of Reagan's most important events through visual form - it does exactly what any good photo-book ought to do.

    Take my word - you'll love this book! Love and peace!
