Journal Entry 2 by wingSecretariatwing at Carlsbad, California USA on Saturday, April 08, 2017
I enjoyed this book more than I thought I might. I've read a good deal about WW II, and thus already knew nearly all that Brinkley was showing us here. I've also read something about Ronald Regan, especially many of his letters, because he was a great correspondent. What I didn't know anything about was the speechwriting of Ronald Regan. Did I know that he had speech writers. Of course. Did I understand how that worked in his administration. No. And I found it surprisingly fascinating. I also liked the confluence of the two studies and thought it was quite an original idea for a book; at least original to me. A very good read.
