Summary
It is twenty years--a full generation--since Ronald Reagan first walked into the White House & ignited a revolution. From the beginning, he enjoyed the American people's affection but now, as he approaches the end of his life, he has received what he deserved even more: their deep respect. What was the wellspring of his greatness? Peggy Noonan, bestselling author of the classic Reagan-era memoir What I Saw at the Revolution, former speechwriter, & now a columnist & contributing editor for The Wall Street Journal, argues that the secret of Reagan's success was no secret at all. It was his character--his courage, his kindness, his persistence, his honesty, & his almost heroic patience in the face of setbacks--that was the most important element of his success. The one thing a man must bring into the White House with him if he is to succeed, Noonan contends, is a character that people come to recognize as high, sturdy, & reliable. Noonan, renowned for her special insight into Ronald Reagan's history & personality, brings her own reflections on Reagan to bear in When Character Was King & discloses never-before-told stories from the former president's family, friends, & White House colleagues to reveal the true nature of a man even his opponents now view as a maker of big history. Marked by incisive wit & elegant prose, When Character Was King will enlighten & move readers
