  • Cannon has made somewhat of a career out of covering Ronald Reagan in California and Washington, DC as he ascended from citizen politician to Governor and then to President This volume provides a brief biography of the citizen years, then covers the 8 years of Reagan s two terms in Sacramento 1967 1974.Written and read in hindsight, it is hard to separate the President to come from the governor who was, but Cannon does an excellent job of conveying the politics and progress of Reagan in his term [...]


  • The author of this book is a journalist who quite literally spent the last 40 years following Reagan around, which has its advantages and disadvantages Cannon has already written three books about Reagan, and one does get the feeling that some of the material in this book has been worked over than once One of Cannon s earlier books, Reagan 1982 , basically covered the same period, and as far as I can tell the inspiration for writing this book, or for amending the old one, was Cannon s discovery [...]


  • Question which CA governor passed the largest tax increase in the state s history at its time , blocked the damning of the Feather River, blocked the construction of a Trans Sierra highway, expanded Redwood National Park and liberalized abortion laws pre Roe v Wade Answer Ronald Reagan.Excellent book about Reagan focusing on his life before politics and his time as governor He really was a pragmatist before he was a conservative He was not a very intellectual man one of my favorite vignettes is [...]


  • Definitely better that the previous two Reagan biographies I have read This one caught my eye because of my interest in the early Reagan years, especially his years in Hollywood I definitely see Lou Cannon books in my future The one thing some might find annoying is the emphasis on behind the scenes details The author seems fond of recalling personal moments with Reagan, especially some tidbit shared while flying together For me, this added color to the book, but in the last section covering th [...]


  • Absolutely outstanding fair and balanced look at Governor Reagan He did a lot in California that I never knew about For instance, pass the largest tax increase in the history of the state Mr Reagan was a true pragmatist unlike this President in the White House right now Many conservatives don t really know the true Reagan, they just think they do The inter party feud with Ford was a fascinating look at Republican politics, in some ways applicable and pertinent in today s Republican party A must [...]


  • Good, fair, and balanced book about Reagan s years as governor and his campaign for President Cannon obviously did a ton of research and interviewed many of the players involved in those days There were still some undeserved pot shots at Reagan, but Cannon seems to understand him better than most other biographers His analysis of Reagan s political skills and instincts is worth the price alone.


  • Lou Cannon is the dean of books on Ronald Reagan Having followed Reagan s career from the very beginning, Cannon has the insight and first hand knowledge of California politics to make this book very good.




  • One of those well researched books that leaves one with a lot of facts but few insights I preferred Wills book Even Morris book was comprehensive, although I wouldn t recommend it.
