These notes clearly define the world view of the ideas and concepts that influenced the man who may have been our greatest leader in modern times. Concepts that are widely held by people of many different political persuasions including FDR, JFK, and many many others.

The great communicator Ronald Reagan had the gift of the one liner and knowing exactly what to say and when to say it. Even though many would argue he used this God given talent to win over his opponents in the political world, some would say he grasp his inspiration from a simpler approach. Douglas Brinkley has edited in his book Ronald Reagan: The Notes, Ronald Reagan’s Private Collection of Stories and Wisdom the never before private collection of the Gipper’s notes. It turns out that throughout his life, Reagan kept cards in a photo box of quips, quotes, and miscellaneous references to the greats throughout history. Who know that his depth of reference transitioned from left, center, and right as these gems shine off the page. This box of treasures was discovered as the Presidential Library was preparing for the centennial birthday celebration of one of America’s beloved President’s. This book is a treasure for any library and is an invaluable source for those who want to garner inspiration from this former President.

Can't decide if I want to buy the book so no review comments other than advice to not waste your time with the sample. It is another example of how the publishers haven't figured out how to work in this medium yet.
