MY THOUGHTS 
 Books that have historic interest are very valuable in our society. SO many people have no idea about people who have so much importance in our present and past.   So many children don't ever know even who a president was or what they did for our country.   I'm a staunch fan of Mr. O'Reilly.     This book is about Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest presidents.   I've always felt O'Reilly gives fair and balanced assessments of all but I was amazed at the amount of negative things about Reagan that were in this book.  As with the other "killing" books, it is written at a fairly fast pace with only 289 pages.  A lot went into those mere 289 pages.   I wish that O'Reilly had gone into more details with supportive documents or statements for things such as Nancy Reagan supposedly stealing the briefing notes from Carter in 1980.  This was for the only debate.    I have a hard time believing that Nancy Reagan did this.   I'd like some supporting documentation. I wasn't surprised by the supposed extra marital affairs but is there substantiating proof of these affairs?  A lot of negative with very little positive about Reagan.   Now, if these things are true, fine, but let's show some proof of these things.  I want to know the bad with the good but this book had more bad than good.  I wish it had been a little more "fair and balanced."   I would suggest reading it.  Perhaps you know more from reading and other information that supports some of these negative things.   Read with an open mind and decide for yourself.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
