His name in American politics is more cited than any other president. Both the Republican and Democratic parties are radically different today, mainly as a result of Ronald Reagan and the force of his ideas. No twentieth century president shaped the American political landscape so profoundly.
Craig Shirley's Last Act is the important final chapter in the life of Reagan that no one has thus far covered. It's the kind of book that widens our understanding of American history and of the presidency and the man who occupied it. To tell Reagan's story, Craig has secured the complete, exclusive, and enthusiastic support of the Reagan Foundation and Library and spent considerable time there reviewing sealed files and confidential information.
Cast in a grand and compelling narrative style, Last Act contains interesting and heretofore untold anecdotes about Reagan, Mrs. Reagan, and their pleasure at retirement, the onslaught of the awful Alzheimer's and how he and Mrs. Reagan dealt with the diagnosis, the slow demise, the extensive plans for a state funeral, the outpouring from the nation, which stunned the political establishment, the Reagan legacy, and how his shadow looms more and more over the Republican Party, Washington, the culture of America, and the world.
Unabridged audio CD; approximately 11 hours 24 minutes; 11 CDs; read by Henry O. Arnold.

While serving his two terms as the fortieth president of the United States, Ronald Reagan kept a handwritten daily diary of his innermost thoughts and observations on the historic and the routine day-to-day occurrences of his presidency. This remarkable record is the only daily presidential diary in American history.
Edited by Douglas Brinkley, The Reagan Diaries provides fascinating insight into one of this nation's most important presidencies and sheds new light on the character of a true American leader. No matter where he was in the world, each night Reagan wrote about the events of his day, which often included his relationships with other world leaders, including Mikhail Gorbachev, Pope John Paul II, Mohammar al-Qaddafi, and Margaret Thatcher, among others, and the unforgettable moments that defined his era - his first inauguration, the end of the Cold War, the Iran hostage crisis, John Hinckley Jr.'s assassination attempt, and many more.
Revealing more than just Reagan's political experiences, many entries are concerned with the president's private thoughts and feelings - his love and devotion for Nancy Reagan and their family, his belief in God and the power of prayer.
Filled with Reagan's trademark wit and sharp intelligence, these diaries give us a unique understanding of one of the most beloved presidents in our nation's history.
