Publisher's Summary

Ronald Reagan is an American success story. From modest beginnings in a small Midwestern town to a distinguished career in films and television, he lived the American dream. As governor of California and as the century's most popular president, he embodied and revitalized the American spirit. Now, in this dramatic and revealing memoir, Ronald Reagan recounts both his life and his beliefs with uncompromising candor and his familiar wit. He discusses his decision to run for president, historic meetings with Mikhail Gorbachev and other heads of state, his frustrations in dealing with an often hostile Congress, his unshakable faith in the American people, and his enduring love for Nancy, who would always be his First Lady. In a moving passage, President Reagan also speaks frankly about the assassination attempt on his life and its effects on him and his family.
An American Life is a richly detailed, definitive account of a great and historic presidency and of a unique American life, from the man who restored America's confidence and strength and shaped the future of the world.

Freedom is Worth the Struggle

Ronald Reagan details the struggle of those who would take our Freedom away and those who intrust it to us. We must struggle to remain Free. Reagan believed in people, unlike those who tie us up with laws and regulations. Listen to him and follow his example.

entertaining

A good autobiography read by President Reagan, this brings back memories of this great and personable leader. I smiled and laughed and got misty during this brief look back at the Great Communicator.
