Awesome to hear it in his voice. Although I wish it was longer, kinda left me wanting more.
Such a cool experience to hear the man himself recount his memories. Highly recommended.
Great and aspiring. I was born in the early 80's and grew up with conservative ideas and values from immigrant parents. Love President Reagan and wish we had such leadership today.
Most enjoyable! A pleasure to listen to from start to finish.
We need another president like Ronald Reagan now more than ever. I don't know if we can survive another 20 years without another boost from a freemarket optimist like Reagan.
It was so great to hear Reagan's voice again. It brought back great memories. How we need someone like him again! It should be required reading (listening) for students today. Truly a great American!
My workout at the gym was worth while in two aspects..I was learning something and getting fit at the same time. It was good to hear Ronald Reagan's perspective on accounts that happened when I was too young to remember or care.
This book was very enjoyable. It was easy to get through and very interesting to hear the intimate details of Ronald Reagan's career as President in his own voice. I always loved Ronald Reagan but after hearing this book, I love him even more. I think he was a "unique" type of politician and a very loving man.
The book sort of meanders and just briefly touches most of the subject matter but to hear this story read by President Reagan himself is worth the price of admission.
I always liked Ronald Reagan, and now I like him even more. His love for his country, his deep convictions, his vision and his hope all shine through his reading of the text. Reagan's comfortable manner made me feel like I was listening to an old friend talking to me personally, rather than a former president reading his autobiography. I only gave the book three stars because it is not a literary masterpiece. More skilled writers might have expressed themselves in a more polished manner. But even so, this book is not a disappointment, because it feels like a friendly chat which doesn't need any "polish."
Now that he has passed into history, it is even more unfortunate that his reading of this, his last written work, was abridged. Were I to be made king for a day, one of my first acts would be to outlaw abridgements. In his own words and in his own soothing voice, President Reagan gives us a pleasing look inside the man. I only wish it hadn't been truncated. Might have been a five star offering had it not been.
I want to know more about his life and personal stories. This book skipped over his first marriage like it never happened. Disappointing
Ronald Reagan has always been my dad's favorite president. Now I know why. It's a great book to read.
Outstanding....just outstanding and I didn't even vote for him! Great book.
Until you hear his life story in his own words you really don't understand the man. Listen to "speaking my mind" in combination with this to get a sense of the trajectory of his career. "American Life" is read by Reagan himself, and he has a voice that plays well on radio (which is how he got started).
