Summary
Based on interviews and access to previously unavailable documents, and infused with irresistible storytelling charm, Spitz provides a post-partisan biography of Ronald Reagan, our 40th President. A young man is born into poverty and raised by a pious mother and a reckless, alcoholic, largely absent father, he became a radio sportscaster, a Hollywood star, the Governor of California, and an icon President of the United States. Spitz doesn't flinch from a full reckoning with the man's strengths and limitations, while showing how he has become a balm for our own bitterly divided times. -- adapted from publisher info
