Praise For Ronald Reagan: How an Ordinary Man Became an Extraordinary Leader

William Kristol The Weekly Standard D'Souza's fine new study provides a fresh opportunity to consider Reagan's achievements.

Robert L. Bartley Editor, The Wall Street Journal A spirited reminder that the Teflon president cured stagflation, won the cold war and conquered malaise. Too bad the chattering classes never noticed.

Rush Limbaugh An unforgettable portrait of Reagan the man, and an exposé of his critics from which they will never recover.

David Gergen Editor-at-Large, U.S. News & World Report D'Souza provides timely and illuminating answers to the riddle that has stumped so many others: why this ordinary man rode so tall in the saddle as President.

P.J. O'Rourke author of Parliament of Whores The best story I have read in years, and the truest.

Tom Wolfe author of The Bonfire of the Vanities This marvelous book will drive the intellectual establishment -- the conservative cadre as well as the liberal legions -- straight up the wall. It convincingly demonstrates Ronald Reagan's moral, political, and -- yes! I'm afraid so! -- intellectual superiority to the entire lot of them.
