What People are Saying About This

Edwin Meese III

The Essential Ronald Reagan is a masterful political biography of a great American president.

Paul Kengor

I'm often asked to recommend a short biography of Ronald Reagan, one that concisely strikes at the core of the man, his ideas, and what he did. The Essential Ronald Reagan is the book that I will now recommend. Lee Edwards has produced a well-written, well-researched, balanced, engaging, and insightful biography of Ronald Reagan.

Michael Barone

Ronald Reagan stands as the most consequential president of the second half of the 20th century. In The Essential Ronald Reagan, Lee Edwards tells the Reagan story as a leading scholar of American conservatism and a gifted writer can.

Martin Anderson

Lee Edwards, who wrote the first biography of Ronald Reagan in 1967, has now written the revised edition—incorporating the stunning accomplishments of Reagan as Governor of California and President of the U.S. This is the essential biography of one of our greatest presidents.
