MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book offers a window into the mind of the nation's 40th president and displays the effort he made behind the scenes to hone his performance as a speechmaker and storyteller driving home a conservative political philosophy." -- USA Today
"This volume provides an illuminating glimpse into Reagan's mind. . . . The entries show the directness of Reagan's thought and his uncanny ability to make a point." -- The Daily
"These notes are wonderful things. . . . Although a few recent books have proclaimed to have finally uncovered the real Reagan, there's a chance we'll never get any closer than in these scribbles, which reveal so much." -- Christopher Buckley, Bloomberg News
"Now with the discovery of his note cards, we can better appreciate just how hard Reagan himself labored to be clear and convincing-and, yes, sometimes funny-to his many audiences." -- The American Spectator
"This is a book to return to often and sample the collected wisdom found there that buttressed a remarkable man's vision." -- The Washington Times
