Review:

“The book offers a window into the mind of the nation’s 40th president and displays the effort he made behind the scenes to hone his performance as a speechmaker and storyteller driving home a conservative political philosophy.” ( USA Today)

“This volume provides an illuminating glimpse into Reagan’s mind. . . . The entries show the directness of Reagan’s thought and his uncanny ability to make a point.” ( The Daily)

“These notes are wonderful things. . . . Although a few recent books have proclaimed to have finally uncovered the real Reagan, there’s a chance we’ll never get any closer than in these scribbles, which reveal so much.” ( Christopher Buckley, Bloomberg News)

“Now with the discovery of his note cards, we can better appreciate just how hard Reagan himself labored to be clear and convincing—and, yes, sometimes funny—to his many audiences.” ( The American Spectator)

“This is a book to return to often and sample the collected wisdom found there that buttressed a remarkable man’s vision.” ( The Washington Times)

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 213 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ronald Reagan s Notecards is a fascinating window into the mind of the fortieth president and the writers and thinkers whom he turned to for advice, inspiration, humour, and hope. Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, the book includes both Reagan s own original writing that honors a lifetime of work in the arts and politics, and includes his favorite quotations, proverbs, and excerpts from speeches, poetry, and literature. Reagan sought wisdom from a wide-ranging set of political figures, philosophers, novelists, and poets, including Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Webster, John F. Kennedy, and Thomas Jefferson, as well as Mahatma Ghandi, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Mark Twain, and Thomas Wolfe. While the number 1 New York Times bestselling Reagan Diaries detailed daily life inside the oval office, Notecards encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family in classic one liners such as, Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors, and Money may not buy friends but it will help you to stay in contact with your children. Reagan s own writing-his jokes, aphorisms, and insights into politics and life-are often surprising and reveal a view of the president that has rarely been seen before. Historic, illuminating, and deeply captivating, Notecards is a remarkable collection of the thoughts of one of our most beloved presidents. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780062065131
