During his two terms as the 40th President of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a daily diary in which he recorded, by hand, his innermost thoughts and observations on the extraordinary, the historic, and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. Now, nearly two decades after he left office, this remarkable record—the only daily Presidential diary in American history—is available for the first time.
Edited by historian Douglas Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provides a striking insight into one of this nation's most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader. Whether he was in his White House residence study or aboard Air Force One, each night Reagan wrote about the events of his day, which often included his relationships with other world leaders and the unforgettable moments that defined the era.
Seldom before has the American public been given access to the unfiltered experiences and opinions of a President in his own words. To read these diaries—filled with Reagan's trademark wit, sharp intelligence, and humor—is to gain a unique understanding of one of the most beloved occupants of the Oval Office in our nation's history.

Ronald Reagan was the 40th President of the United States.From AudioFile:
THE REAGAN DIARIES, spanning the years 1981-1989, open with an introduction by the editor, which gives a broad overview of Reagans presidency and personal life, nicely establishing the context in which these diaries were written. Delivering the diaries themselves with Reagans own phrasing and pacing, narrator Eric Conger begins to sound much like the Great Communicator himself. Subject matter ranges from the historic to the mundane, often in the same entry. Reagans voice as delivered by Conger is clear and recognizable throughout. Extras include swelling martial music bracketing each discs presentation and a final disc that presents excerpts from nine of the presidents actual speeches. Listeners will find Congers performance a satisfying experience. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
