From the Back Cover:

Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, The Notes is a fascinating window into the mind of our fortieth president. While the #1 New York Times bestselling Reagan Diaries detailed daily life inside the Oval Office, The Notes encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family. Classic one-liners such as "Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors" and "Money may not buy friends, but it will help you to stay in contact with your children" shed light on the man known as the "Great Communicator," and a sampling of Reagan's favorite speeches, poems, and passages from literature reveal the writers and thinkers he turned to time and again for advice, inspiration, humor, and hope.

Historic, illuminating, and deeply captivating, The Notes is a remarkable collection of the thoughts of one of our most beloved presidents.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2012. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 198 x 134 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Ronald Reagan s The Notes is a fascinating window into the mind of the fortieth U.S. President and the writers and thinkers to whom he turned for advice, inspiration, humor, and hope. Collected by the Ronald Reagan Foundation, the book includes both Reagan s own writing and his favorite quotations, proverbs, and excerpts from speeches, poetry, and literature. The breadth of these notes sheds light on a man who was deeply engaged with the arts, culture, and politics, from his time as one of the nation s most popular actors to later years as one of its most beloved presidents. Known as the Great Communicator, Reagan sought wisdom from a wide-ranging set of political figures, philosophers, novelists, and poets, including Abraham Lincoln, Daniel Webster, John F. Kennedy, and Thomas Jefferson, as well as Mohandas Gandhi, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, Mark Twain, and Thomas Wolfe. While the number one New York Times bestselling Reagan Diaries detailed daily life inside the Oval Office, The Notes encapsulates a lifetime of reflections on work, marriage, and family in classic one-liners such as Flattery is what makes husbands out of bachelors and Money may not buy friends, but it will help you to stay in contact with your children. Reagan s own writing - his jokes, aphorisms, and insights into politics and life - is often surprising and reveals a view of the president that has rarely before been seen. Historic, illuminating, and deeply captivating, The Notes is a remarkable collection of the thoughts of one of a beloved American President. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780062065148
