If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Ronald Reagan was a product of America's heartland, a kid who had a Huck Finn childhood and never lost his aw-shucks, all-American optimism. He moved to Hollywood, became a minor film star, and got involved in politics-at first on the left. But in the shadow of the 1950s anti-Communism furor, he moved to the right and began a steady rise to the pinnacle of power. Initially derided as a lightweight, a none-too-bright actor incapable of leading a nation, he proved his detractors wrong. Using extraordinary charm, conviction, communication skills, and stagecraft, Reagan became one of the most beloved, admired, and influential presidents in American history. Of all American presidents, few could match Ronald Wilson Reagan in the art of leadership. He knew America. Ronald came into office in 1980-when the national mood was glum and the future looked problematic (sound familiar?)-and he lifted the country's spirits on a wave of hope, purpose, and unabashed patriotism. In the years that followed, productivity and prosperity-at least for the upper and middle classes-increased at home, the Berlin Wall came down, and the Soviet Union collapsed, making America the de facto winner of the Cold War. Ronald's policies played a part, of course, but it wasn't just his management style that captured the heart of America. He brought something intangible to the national stage, an innate optimism that simply made Americans feel better.

    A look back at this century's most beloved president. Reagan was a great diplomat but also a humble man from humble beginnings. From a teenage lifeguard to the most powerful man in the world is a life well lived in my book. This also includes a handful of pictures detailing his life. I cried reading a few of his more heartfelt speeches,especially his tribute to the Challenger astronauts and his final goodbye as he succumbed to Alzheimers. There will never be another Gipper.

    This is another short from the editors of New Word City. A short profile of a leader is followed by bullet point leadership lessons demonstrated from their life. Although I didn't really learn anything new, it was a nice summation of Reagan's legacy and his leadership skills.

    Since I really like Reagan, I gave it one more shot... same story. I really liked the biography that the book starts with, but the "lessons" that made up the second half are pretty much useless.
