Synopsis

Ronald Reagan Our 40th President by Winston Groom

From the author of Forest Gump, The Aviators, and The Generals...He was one of America's true greats. As president, he changed the world, developing a successful strategy for defeating Communism, toppling the Soviet Union, and liberating Eastern Europe (while hardly firing a shot). And just as important, he restored an America that had found itself mired in a malaise of falling living standards, moral decay, and what seemed like inevitable decline. Though he was our oldest president, Reagan acted as a tonic, rejuvenating America's economy, restoring her confidence, and attracting a majority of young voters won over by his vision of making America once again a shining city on a hill. In this superlative biography for young adults, bestselling author Winston Groom--author of Forrest Gump--gives us the full Reagan, from his Midwestern American boyhood, to his early career as a radio sports announcer, to his days as a Hollywood star and his extraordinary political career as a union leader, governor of California, and president of the United States. Covering the gamut of Reagan's dramatic life, Ronald Reagan: Our 40th President is essential reading, as inspiring as its subject.
