Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From the team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, bestselling authors of the blockbuster Killing series, now comes Killing Reagan. This page-turning epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan tells the vivid story of his rise to power -- and the forces of evil that conspired to bring him down.

Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable -- or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world?

Told in the same riveting fashion as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, and Killing Patton, Killing Reagan reaches back to the golden days of Hollywood, where Reagan found both fame and heartbreak, up through the years in California governor's mansion, and finally to the White House, where he presided over boom years and the fall of the Iron Curtain. But it was John Hinckley Jr.'s attack on him that precipitated President Reagan's most heroic actions. In Killing Reagan, O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the scenes, creating an unforgettable portrait of a great man operating in violent times.

   I enjoyed the first third of the book
I enjoyed the first third of the book, but as the book progressed, I began to feel uneasy about the reference to President Reagan and memory loss so early in his presidency. I have read other reviews from well-known historians and agree that the book is not completely factual. I read all the previous books by Mr. O Reilly and enjoyed, but this one was disappointing.
   How accurate is it?
I was impressed to learn some historical facts and enjoyed reading some of his most memorable history, making speeches and letters. But most of it seemed to me purely suppositional. Regardless, I still view Reagan as one of the greatest presidents in our nation's history.
   Killing Reagan
The part I enjoyed most was the effort behind the scenes that Reagan put forth to get the desired results.
   Very good book
Showed that Reagen had human failings like us all, which makes his greatness even brighter. This book places his presidency in the proper perspective.
   Another very good read.
Very enlightening book, some things were a little off putting, but it was necessary to include them. We have to put these historical people in the perspective that they are in fact humans. I read all the killing novels and enjoyed them all.
   Good read
i am not a right-wing member, but i found this book interesting. It was a gift to someone else who offered it to me. During this time, I had forgotten many of the interesting things that happened. Nice trip down Memory Lane lane is a little slower than usual.
   Just what we needed, when we needed it....
The authors have managed to pull a fair and impartial presentation of Reagan the man as usual. If there is a bias involved, it is for sure minscule. Not an overly long read, but incredibly interesting, and very poignant. A man for the times truly is a true one.
   Shame on Mr. O'Reilly
Simply put, if you like President Reagan, you will not like this book. The books by Bill O Reilly, Killing '' are outstanding, informative and antiseptic. Reading them you do not get a sense of the authors'biases, favors or disfavors. About this book Reagan can not be written. The book is wrought with criticism of President Reagan and his wife Nancy. Throughout the book, attempted assassin John Hinkley is regurgitated. Hinkley is the third most recognizable figure in the book. Had this been the first book I would have read in the series Killing '', I would not have purchased the others. Fortunately, this was not the first, so I enjoyed the other books immensely and disappointed in this one-sided book.
   O'Reilly for the O'Retired
Before my retirement, my husband has never read books. He spent his day reading, writing, reviewing, and was too tired to read by the time he got home. He has read every O 'Reilly Killing book to date and this has been his favorite. He read a page or two and then comes to me to reiterate everything he learned that he didn 't know. I now have a large collection of O'Reilly books to read, but my husband Reagan is finishing Reagan and waiting for the delivering of The Mob.
   Excellent book.
This book made me realize that I did not know as much about him as I thought I did, especially his pre-politics life. The book showed Ronald and Nancy as they were really good and bad. Also very educational about Hinckley, the Kennedys, the assignment attempt and Ronald's last few years. The book showed Ronald as he really was, flaws and all, but I love him more now than I did before reading it!
