Reagan: An American Journey Reviews

    Spitz has provided us with really the definitive biography of Reagan, the man. The book is carefully researched, thorough, and painstakingly filled with detail. Especially of note are the chapters about Reagan?s early formative years in the small prairie towns, working as a lifeguard...

    It's difficult for me to be objective about Ronald Reagan the man, much less a good biography of him, which this certainly is. I've read several biographies of the Gipper, most memorably Edmund Morris's Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan , and I find it impossible to reconcile the man w...

    https://bestpresidentialbios.com/2018... Published in late 2018, Bob Spitz?s ?Reagan: An American Journey? is the most recently-published biography of Ronald Reagan. Spitz is a journalist and author whose previous best-selling books include ?Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Ju...

    A three-star treatment of a five-star President. I enjoyed the book while finding it uneven in quality. For example, Spitz covers the CA gubernatorial race and the assassination attempt superbly, but his grasp of economics is weak, and it shows. A worthwhile read, but I?ll also dig i...

    Good, thorough book, well written. Only critique was skipping over the positive economic triumphs in the 80s. ...

    The accomplished and talented author of the best-selling Julia Child biography ?Dearie,? turns his attention to detail and story-telling skills to the subject of Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan. Conducting exhaustive interviews over a five-year period and with access to previous unavaila...

    This is a very thorough and readable biography. It focuses as much-more-on Reagan's formative pre-Presidential years as on the White House. Because of Spitz's previous works on Julia Child and the Beatles I expected more of a celebrity bio flavor. But the research is serious and source...

    Love him or hate him, Reagan left an indelible mark on America and his legacy continues to reverberate nearly 40 years after he won the US Presidency. Spitz digs deep for this biography, and does an exceptional job of describing Reagan the boy, Reagan the actor, Reagan the husband, Rea...

    After reading several biographies of Reagan, this is definitely in the top tier. Spitz does an excellent job in describing Reagan?s rise from small town Illinois to the governorship of California. Spitz?s past biographies on the Beatles and Julia Child give him insight into how ...

    I enjoy reading biographies and this is one of my least favorites that I?ve read. First, Bob Spitz rarely gives you dates in his narrative, so you?ll be going along and have no idea if Reagan is 22 or 82. This is probably more of a pet peeve, but it was annoying. Second, I f...

    Yes, I read another Ronald Reagan biography. This one had a lot of insights I hadn't read before, particularly from Reagan's White House aides, which would have been interesting if I liked reading about office politics and personality conflicts. This biographer stuck to the facts and g...

    It's difficult for me to be objective about Ronald Reagan the man, much less a good biography of him, which this certainly is. I've read several biographies of the Gipper, most memorably Edmund Morris's Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan , and I find it impossible to reconcile the man w...

    A three-star treatment of a five-star President. I enjoyed the book while finding it uneven in quality. For example, Spitz covers the CA gubernatorial race and the assassination attempt superbly, but his grasp of economics is weak, and it shows. A worthwhile read, but I?ll also dig i...

    Love him or hate him, Reagan left an indelible mark on America and his legacy continues to reverberate nearly 40 years after he won the US Presidency. Spitz digs deep for this biography, and does an exceptional job of describing Reagan the boy, Reagan the actor, Reagan the husband, Rea...

    After reading several biographies of Reagan, this is definitely in the top tier. Spitz does an excellent job in describing Reagan?s rise from small town Illinois to the governorship of California. Spitz?s past biographies on the Beatles and Julia Child give him insight into how ...

    I enjoy reading biographies and this is one of my least favorites that I?ve read. First, Bob Spitz rarely gives you dates in his narrative, so you?ll be going along and have no idea if Reagan is 22 or 82. This is probably more of a pet peeve, but it was annoying. Second, I f...

    Yes, I read another Ronald Reagan biography. This one had a lot of insights I hadn't read before, particularly from Reagan's White House aides, which would have been interesting if I liked reading about office politics and personality conflicts. This biographer stuck to the facts and g...

    Unfortunately, it can be hard to find a Reagan biography that is unbiased but his one does a pretty good job of sharing the facts. Both positive and negative. Reagan clearly had a big heart and that was a great thing but also led him into some poor decisions. Unlike other biogra...

    It's difficult for me to be objective about Ronald Reagan the man, much less a good biography of him, which this certainly is. I've read several biographies of the Gipper, most memorably Edmund Morris's Dutch: A Memoir of Ronald Reagan , and I find it impossible to reconcile the man w...

    https://bestpresidentialbios.com/2018... Published in late 2018, Bob Spitz?s ?Reagan: An American Journey? is the most recently-published biography of Ronald Reagan. Spitz is a journalist and author whose previous best-selling books include ?Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Ju...

    A three-star treatment of a five-star President. I enjoyed the book while finding it uneven in quality. For example, Spitz covers the CA gubernatorial race and the assassination attempt superbly, but his grasp of economics is weak, and it shows. A worthwhile read, but I?ll also dig i...

    Good, thorough book, well written. Only critique was skipping over the positive economic triumphs in the 80s. ...

    The accomplished and talented author of the best-selling Julia Child biography ?Dearie,? turns his attention to detail and story-telling skills to the subject of Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan. Conducting exhaustive interviews over a five-year period and with access to previous unavaila...

    This is a very thorough and readable biography. It focuses as much-more-on Reagan's formative pre-Presidential years as on the White House. Because of Spitz's previous works on Julia Child and the Beatles I expected more of a celebrity bio flavor. But the research is serious and source...

    Love him or hate him, Reagan left an indelible mark on America and his legacy continues to reverberate nearly 40 years after he won the US Presidency. Spitz digs deep for this biography, and does an exceptional job of describing Reagan the boy, Reagan the actor, Reagan the husband, Rea...

    After reading several biographies of Reagan, this is definitely in the top tier. Spitz does an excellent job in describing Reagan?s rise from small town Illinois to the governorship of California. Spitz?s past biographies on the Beatles and Julia Child give him insight into how ...

    I enjoy reading biographies and this is one of my least favorites that I?ve read. First, Bob Spitz rarely gives you dates in his narrative, so you?ll be going along and have no idea if Reagan is 22 or 82. This is probably more of a pet peeve, but it was annoying. Second, I f...

    Yes, I read another Ronald Reagan biography. This one had a lot of insights I hadn't read before, particularly from Reagan's White House aides, which would have been interesting if I liked reading about office politics and personality conflicts. This biographer stuck to the facts and g...

    Unfortunately, it can be hard to find a Reagan biography that is unbiased but his one does a pretty good job of sharing the facts. Both positive and negative. Reagan clearly had a big heart and that was a great thing but also led him into some poor decisions. Unlike other biogra...
