Book Review: REAGAN: What Was He Really Like?

REAGAN: What Was He Really Like?

This book provides the reader with a different type of insight on who Ronald Reagan was. It is written in short story format, about 20 vignettes on the life of Reagan before he became president. The different part os that the people offering the stories are research assistants, body guards, campaign advance staff, drivers, receptionist, etc, not your typical political personality.

The book contains photographs that make this book extremely interesting as I, for one, had never seen those photographs before.

I give kudos to the author, Curtis Patrick, for writing a book that presents glimpses in the live of Ronald Reagan from common people. This book is volume 1 and I look forward to reading volume 2 once it comes out.

This book is not for everyone, but the people who admire Ronald Reagan will enjoy this book as it takes a look into the early years (political life).
