Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard comes Killing Reagan, an epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan that tells the vivid story of his rise to power - and the forces of evil that conspired to bring him down.
Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable - or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world?
Told in the same riveting fashion as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, and Killing Patton, Killing Reagan reaches back to the golden days of Hollywood where Reagan found both fame and heartbreak, up through the years in the California governor's mansion, and finally to the White House where he presided over boom years and the fall of the iron curtain. But it was John Hinckley Jr.'s attack on him that precipitated President Reagan's most heroic actions. In Killing Reagan, O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the scenes, creating an unforgettable portrait of a great man operating in violent times.

Kiliing Reagan

Where does Killing Reagan rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Like others in the O'Reilly, Martin Dugard series, this book is full of research that tells the reader things we didn't know or some of us only suspected. It will take me some time to fully digest and separate the public Ronald Reagan from the historical facts in the book. I'm sure that some people may be put off by some of the material but I found it thought provoking and very timely considering a Presidential election is on the horizon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Killing Reagan?

The entire book was captivating and had be either shaking my head in disbelief or nodding in confirmation that I got things right when they were happening. I am a Ronald Reagan fan but I now need to revaluate some of the reasons why.

Have you listened to any of Robert Petkoff and Bill O'Reilly ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have read or listened to all of Bill O' Reilly's books. The research done by Martin Dugard is truly brilliant and give the reader insight that go beyond the sound bites and fluffed up images we form our opinions on. It is no surprise the Bill started off and a teacher and still is; he just has a bigger class room now.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Surprisingly Good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it is a good account of the Reagan years and a good way to look at a Presidency that is so often misunderstood. Both authors write in an engaging and journalistic way. The section on the Falklands is nicely balanced and one of the best descriptions of the sinking of HMS Sheffield I have come across.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The authors are actually a surprise. O'Reilly is best known for being the "beast of Fox News" and here there are certainly some right wing nuances, that said I found myself appreciating his passion and the power of the argument even if every way of looking at problem or issue I don't agree with,

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No - three sittings.

Any additional comments?

I wish they would look at the FDR years as well. See what they make of that.

More than just about Regan

Would you listen to Killing Reagan again? Why?

So I picked this book because of the other high ratings, I was a teen when Regan was president, and i didn't approve of a few of his choices or moves, but I was intrigued by his popularity.The book was interesting because it went of in tangents to describe other events happening world wide during episodes of Regan's life and presidency. My only gripe, is that I googled Bill o Reilly and this book after purchasing it, and there are claims that a lot of the content was fabricated or embellished, and during particular points in the book i was left wondering if this was the writer simply being creative. Either way, I got through it and enjoyed it.. Worth a listen
