Summary

In 1982, Peter Robinson was hired as a speechwriter in the Reagan White House. One of a core group of writers who became informal experts on Reagan, Robinson absorbed not just the president's politics but his manner and way of carrying himself. And the example Reagan set, as a confident, principled, generous-spirited older man who inspired those around him, molded Robinson just as he was coming into his own. "The longer I studied Ronald Reagan," he says, "the more lessons I learned." At the core of How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life are ten life lessons Robinson learned from Reagan: principles that have guided his own life ever since. Yet it also offers a warm and unforgettable portrait of a great yet ordinary man who touched the individuals around him as surely as he did his millions of admirers around the world. The result is nothing less than a love story, an account of one man's profound respect and affection for the president who changed his life.

"The best portrait of Reagan this side of the Reagan library." (William F. Buckley, Jr.)

Beautiful story & Great narration!

After hearing and reading a number of biographical, as well as autobiographical books about Ronald Reagan... in my opinion, this book was in the very top 5 of the list.
The heart and soul of this book, as well as the craftsmanship of the writing, created an inspiring and touching portrayal of the blossoming of a life well lived. This influence of Ronald Reagan’s life to inspire and transform other lives, including the life of the author, continues to have a ripple effect on individuals as well as upon the world, like tossing a pebble into a pond.
As disturbing as current affairs are throughout the world, it would be difficult to calculate where we would be if Ronald Reagan had not lived.

This book is amazing!!

This book is not about Reagan and his policies but it is how the man, Ronald Reagan affected his life's views. This book was much more then I ever thought it would be.
