Publisher's Summary

Peggy Noonan is one of the most brilliant and influential political thinkers and writers of our time. The author of five best-selling books (What I Saw at the Revolution is now a classic), her column in The Wall Street Journal is a must-read for millions of Americans. Witty, incisive, and always original, Peggy Noonan is a conservative intellectual with wide-reaching appeal across the political spectrum.

Now, for the first time, the best of Noonan's writing will be collected in one indispensable volume. With a special, original introduction, she chronicles her career in journalism, the Reagan White House, and the political arena. Annotated and analyzed throughout, Peggy expands a lifetime of wonderful writing into an astute examination of American life.

    "Great Conservative Read"

    Loved it. Really enjoyed the commentary. She definitely puts in words the thoughts of a conservative intellectual. I never realized I should label myself as such.

    Story
    "Ronald Reagan is God. Who knew?"

    Despite being a former military officer with a strong sense of flag-waving patriotism, this book struck me as an interminable rewrite, or at the least re-positioning, of history. Not unexpected based on having read the author's columns for many years but compacted in this format one risks overdosing on Reagan, religion and Republican self-aggrandizement. This one's going back for a refund.

    "Great pieces by Peggy Noonan but the narration is terrible!"

    If you've heard Peggy noonan's narration of her book what I saw at the revolution you'll be disappointed by how poorly the narrators of this book capture her cadence and tone. Such overacting.
    The WORST part is that the narrators are constantly mispronouncing words! Famous people and places- their names butchered! Embarrassing. Did anyone check this before it was released?!
    I can't even finish the audiobook and I'm already more than halfway through.

    "A fine collection representing an admirable career"

    This collection of stories is both pertinent to our day and an at times happy, sometimes jarring reflection on the past.
