During his two terms as the fortieth president of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a daily diary in which he recorded, by hand, his innermost thoughts and observations on the extraordinary, the historic, and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. Brought together in one volume and edited by historian Douglas Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provides a striking insight into one of this nation's most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader.

Ronald Reagan was the 40th President of the United States.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The inside perspective I read the first volume - January '81 to October '85, and I look forward to reading the second volume since it will hopefully give more insight into the Iran-Contra affair and the eventual collapse of the Soviet Union from the first hand perspective of one of the architects of both of those events. The Reagan Diaries takes the readers inside the brain of the 40th President of the United States to get his first hand accounts, impressions and opinions of people, places and things that went on during those 4+ years of his presidency. No shortage of interesting events and characters that are involved during that time, getting a first person account of his official diary is a treasure for any history or political buff. His diary entries give you great insight into the type of man and politician Ronald Reagan was, what his values were and what he really hoped to accomplish. Even if you don't agree with his politics or policies (as I do not), you can really admire the things for which he stood and what he did to accomplish what he said he would accomplish. Even at 500+ pages, every entry is intriguing and keeps the reader engaged because of the swath of topics he covers in each one. #plumreview
