A Look Back At Our 40th President During The Ronald Reagan Centennial

I wish Ronald Reagan was still with us and I wish he were still the president.

Alas, he is gone.

But during the Ronald Reagan Centennial, the year-long celebration to commemorate the 100th birthday of our 40th president, we have several books out that look back on the man many Americans believe was one of our of greatest presidents.

My friend and former editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer, Frank Wilson, wrote a good review of Ron Reagan's My Father at 100: A Memoir and Michael Schaller's Ronald Reagan.

You can read Frank Wilson's review in The Philadelphia Inquirer via the below link:

You can also read my review of William F. Buckley's The Reagan I Knew, which appeared earlier in The Philadelphia Inquirer, via the below link:

And if you truly want to get to know the real Ronald Reagan, read his letters in Reagan: A Life in Letters. You can sample some of the letters via the below link:
