Published by Regnery Publishing, Inc. in 2012.

Winston Groom, forever to be known as the author of Forrest Gump, has busied himself with a series of non-fiction books as of late. His latest is this short biography, Ronald Reagan: Our 40th President. The publisher lists this book as "juvenile nonfiction" but this adult also enjoyed this 148 page biography.

A light read geared toward young people, but a very good introduction to the greatest modern president. I believe the founding fathers would have been comfortable leaving the country in Reagan's hands.
