What did President Ronald Reagan think of Rocky IV? How did the Matthew Broderick film WarGames inform America's missile defense system? What Michael J. Fox movie made such an impression on President Reagan that he felt compelled to mention it in a speech to the Joint Session of Congress? Over the course of eight years, Mark Weinberg travelled to Camp David each weekend with Ronald and Nancy Reagan.

I have the audible edition, and it was like sitting around a campfire listening to some of your best memories. The 1980s, the Reagans, the music and pop culture, all here, with little doses of good natured politics, wrapped up with a personal touch.

Being a fan of everything 80s, it's fun to hear about how other perceived it, and especially how it relates to the Reagans.

This was a wonderful journey back, fantastic.
