Boxed Set Includes the following paperback editions:

"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…What lifts Cannon's work on Reagan leagues above Edmund Morris's semi-authorized Dutch is Cannon's authoritative grasp of the material--the likelihood that, when he narrates what went on in a meeting, he's talked about it more than once to almost all the people in the room…Ultimately, and with all the precincts reporting in, Governor Reagan stands above all others as the book that Gov.-elect Schwarzenegger needs to read right now."--San Francisco Chronicle

Hailed by The New York Times as "the best study of that enigmatic presidency," Lou Cannon's President Reagan remains the definitive account of our most significant presidency in the last fifty years. Only veteran journalist Lou Cannon can take us deep behind the scenes of the oval office. Cannon reveals the true nature of the man behind the performer, the life behind the legend.
