Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a very insightful book. I remember many events of the Reagan presidency, but here’s an insider’s account of behind-the-scenes happenings. I hadn’t known Ronald Reagan and Jane Wyman lost a premature daughter, which was a contributing factor to their divorce. I remember the flap about Reagan taking naps, and was amused to learn he cultivated that image to lull opponents into underestimating him. In the years after World War II, communists tried to control Hollywood in a strike. Reagan was one of three reps for the Screen Actors Guild to negotiate. That led to his primary motivation to be president—so he could fight and defeat Soviet communism. Michael Reagan believes his father didn’t win the Republican nomination in 1976 because none of his allies—Margaret Thatcher, Pope John Paul II, and others—were in place. I received a free copy for Netgalley for my honest opinion.
