The challenges and threats we as a nation face today are eerily similar to the conditions in the world before the beginning of the Reagan era. In his famous 1976 speech at the Republican National Convention, Ronald Reagan helped define a way forward and strengthened the Republican Party. As we stand at a crossroads once again, we are fortunate to have a blueprint for restoring America’s greatness. Reagan has given us the principles to succeed.
This book is not merely a diagnosis of our nation’s ills but a prescription to heal our nation, rooted in the words and principles of Ronald Reagan. Michael Reagan shares the plan his father developed over years of study, observation, and reflection. It is the plan he announced to the nation, straight from his heart, one summer evening during America’s 200th year. It is the plan he put into action during his eight years in office as one of the most effective presidents of the 20th century, and it is the plan we can use today to help return America to its former greatness, soundness, and prosperity.

“Michael Reagan, the elder son of the greatest president of the 20th century, has written the Reaganite roadmap for restoring America’s greatness. Only Michael Reagan could have written a book which embraces the full range of Ronald Reagan’s intellect and spirit, from his unyielding toughness at Reykjavík and Berlin to his deep compassion for the oppressed. He shows us how to apply the timeless principles of Reagan conservatism to the fast-changing world in which we live. Must reading for every true conservative.” (Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House)
Based on principle
Ronald Reagan understood deeply why this country was founed and what made the nation exceptional. He believe in the principles that built this nation; that it's people needs to be a moral people. Government, while necessary, must be limited. Its people must realize that if we want to keep this great nation, we must constantly work to ensure these principles are being followed, or we will end up like all other nations across the globe.
Since this book was about Ron Reagon, obviously, he's my favorite, although I learned a lot more about the rest of the family I didn't know.
There were many moments that moved me, but I was quite struck to learn how passionate his daughter was about finding a cure for Alzheimers while she essentially lay on her death bed fighting Melanoma.
At the risk of sounding cliche; this is a MUST READ. If you care about our country, what you learn from this can literally help save this nation from absolute ruin!!!
I will start by stating that I don't agree with Michael and all of his political views but I find the way he presented his topics and family stories insightful. This is a must for everyone - and push through the topics you don't agree with him on, if any. As he will share his father's words - how do we agree and let's move from there.
I really enjoyed the history from the 40's thru today. Loved Learning why President Reagan was the way he was. Such a great leader - I truly miss that. He really understood economics and tried his best to change change the world.
EVERYTHING ! I Loved the background of why Reagan was so dedicated to bringing down the Iron Curtain. No wonder!
This sounded as it was coming directly from Michael Reagan himself.
A MUST READ !
I listened it for a few hours in hope to get some interesting information about "larger than life" Ronald Reagan. I cannot listen to this incoherent mumbling any more. Son, I bet that you did not advance beyond high school education. Son, you are no Ronald Reagan! If you are ardent believer in Tea Party, you may like this book. All normal people who can think should probably avoid it like plague.
