In this provocative and stunningly insightful memoir, Donald T. Regan takes us down the corridors of power in Washington and into the heart of the Reagan Administration. For the Record is frank and revealing. It is an analysis of the Reagan Presidency -- and an account of the personalities of Washington's movers and shakers -- written by a man once called "the second-most powerful man in America."

For the Record has been propelled to the best-seller list because Regan reveals the role that Nancy Reagan and her astrologer play in controlling the presidential agenda. However, those hoping to be titillated by lengthy exposes and gossip will be disappointed. Instead, the former secretary of treasury and presidential chief of staff thoughtfully and passionately recounts his six years as an operative in the Reagan Revolution, which ended when he was forced out during the Iran-Contra debacle. Despite criticizing the administration for pandering to the media, Regan gives the president high marks and admiration. While faulting many White House aides for lacking integrity, Regan does not indulge in the sophomoric attacks of Larry Speakes in Speaking Out ( LJ 6/15/88). An excellent complement to Martin Anderson's policy-oriented Revolution ( LJ 6/15/88), For the Record merits its wide readership.Karl Helicher, Wolfsohn Memorial Lib., King of Prussia, Pa.
