"The campaign scenes in Cannon's smart, savvy book play like the original production of a farce whose modern-dress revival we've all, willingly or not, just sat through…it's amazing how much fresh detail he breathes into a story that many Californians probably think they know by heart…

Ronald Reagan: A Life In Politics by Lou Cannon (2004)
An excellently written account of the life of Ronald Reagan. This box set was one of the first major heavy-duty biopics I ever read, and it was absolutely enthralling. I am a huge Reagan fan, so reading this cover to cover was like drinking a tall glass of ice water on a hot summer day. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in President Reagan and his life.
