This book delves into the public and private life of Ronald Reagan who was one of the most effective presidents America has ever seen. The book explores the humble blue collar beginnings of the Reagan family and journeys through his life to the White House.

An excellent book everyone should read. Before I read this book I had a completely different view of President Ronald Reagan, probably based on the opinions of his opponents. Being President of the U.S.A. and leader of the West is the most difficult job in the World. It is a complete balancing act to keep peace between different factions, races, and religions. He pulled the U.S.A out of a serious recession some say a depression with the various programs he introduced, all the time being undermined by the opposition. There is no "free" lunch and one must work for a living and contribute to society. This is not to say that the sick and unemployable should not be looked after and he did his best to do this. I don't agree with all he did, but today I believe he was a great President and did his best under the circumstances. I hold much respect for him and every one should read this book to see what he was up against. It is too bad that current politicians aren't following his methods and advice!
