    1. Joe James

      It's a very poorly written book. Perhaps I wasn't the targeted audience, but all in all the author participates in a lot of speculation and revisionist history. He seems very critical of hacks in the conservative movement and how they've dumbed down the electorate (or what have you) when he himself can't seem to humanize Democrats or make a caricature of them (for instance whenever he mentions Jimmy Carter he always mentions he's a Peanut farmer, why do this other than to wink wink nod at his co [...]

      An important read for any political junkie and well-timed in regards to the 2016 election. While most understand the importance of Reagan and the great things he did in regards to American history and politics, the book is very Reagan heavy and over glorifies the man.

      This book, in the context of the 2016 election, is perfectly timed by a Conservative writer looking to bring the GOP back to the "sanity" table. The book is honest as to why the GOP has gone off the train tracks over the last 25 years. I personally believe the modern GOP is on it's way to being irrelevant to a younger, more progressive generation (fingers crossed). His prescription for the cure is a long shot at best. Good read for a political junkie.
