I did not know how deep a friendship this was, till I read this last book by Mr. William F Buckley Jr. This was a deep ideological relationship that developed into a personal friendship. More interestingly, the wonderful thread of humor all through their correspondence, whether it was Mrs.Reagan or the Governor himself. Policy influencing correspondence written with dry humor that rendered the folks involved very human and down to earth. This was a relationship that changed America in the 70s and the 80s, with the affects even felt today. Mr. Buckley, the original conservative thinker and theorist found the perfect executor of these values in Reagan, who later became the president and induced the implosion of the Soviet empire. A masterful, insightful and an evergreen lesson in letter writing to the people in power, also, a fantastic time capsule of an era that makes me yearn for a leader like Reagan. This book is a must for every American who wants to understand the two giants of conservatism at their most vulnerable, as personable humans, yet, wielding awesome power. I recommend this great little book as a treasure for everybody, including my flaming liberal friends! Raju Peddada
