In The President Will See You Now, devoted Reagan insider Peggy Grande shares behind-the-scenes stories, intimate moments, and insights into one of America's most beloved presidents. Grande, who started in the office of Ronald Reagan as a college student and earned her way into a coveted role as the president's executive assistant, offers an unparalleled perspective on the postpresidency of a political icon.
Grande's stories show a unique private side to a public figure and leader who reshaped conservatism, ushered in an era of prosperity, and helped spur the end of the Cold War. Grande reveals what day-to-day life was like in Reagan's California office, including the former president's relationship with the first lady and his interactions with friends, world leaders, and everyday Americans. Grande recalls how Reagan kept a vigorous schedule for years after he left the White House, his robust engagement with others, and his ongoing political advocacy. Despite his eventual Alzheimer's diagnosis, Grande shows how Ronald Reagan remained true to core beliefs, his gentlemanly kindness, and his undying hope for his country.
Today the Reagan legacy looms over American politics more than ever. Grande reminds listeners why: When Ronald Reagan was president, we not only loved ourselves but also loved America and the American values he represented: faith, optimism, and patriotism.

I always loved and admired President Reagan. This book brought him to life for me in a special way as I am also an Executive Assistant but to someone nearly as important or influential. My heart is overwhelmed by your devotion and loyalty to such a beloved man.
