Smooth sailing

This book has clarified more issues than any book I have read on the subject of conservative politics. The tone of the book is also not condescending as some of the ones I have read.
I always felt that Ronald Reagan was one of the greatest presidents of the Twentieth Century, now I am convinced that he was the greatest. Listening to more of the history about the man is fascinating and surprising with little known facts (to me) about Reagen and many others involved in the conservative movement.
Very enjoyable to listen to and deserves a second listening.
