As he grew up under his father’s watchful gaze, he observed the very qualities that made the future president a powerful leader. Yet for all of their shared experiences of horseback rides and touch football games, there was much that Ron never knew about his father’s past. In My Father at 100, he sets out to understand this beloved, if often enigmatic figure, who turned his early tribulations into a stunning political career.
Since his death in 2004, President Reagan has been a galvanizing force that personifies the values of an older America and represents an important era in national history. Ron Reagan traces the sources of these values in his father’s early years and offers a heartfelt portrait of a man and his country—and his personal memories of the president he knew as "Dad".

Loved this book!
I really enjoyed this book. Ron Jr. does a great job narrating his own work. This is not an in depth history telling account but a personal account and reflection through the eyes of Ron Jr. I highly recommend this book!

A Son's Tribute to His Father
Knowing Ronnie Reagan's political views, in advance I had expected a rather critical review by him of his father. Instead, he painted a vivid portrait of his father's fore-bearers and of the circumstances of President Reagan's upbringing and progression throughout his life. As one who lived in California under Reagan's governorship for eight years there and, later, under his eight years as president, and, being myself a progressive liberal, I harbor no fond recollections of that experience. However, Ronnie Reagan's book, at least, better informed me of the events that made Reagan the man and politician that he was and has,thus, softened my outlook on him. Ronnie succeeded in explaining the dynamics of his father and did so in a manner most befitting a loving son's recounting of his experiences with his father, for which I tip my hat to him.
