From the bestselling team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard comes Killing Reagan, a page-turning epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan that 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 the 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 thought this was a great book, especially if you were an admirer of Ronald Reagan. Well written, insightful, provided a close up look into the life of Ronald Reagan from actor to President. I also learned a lot about his presidency, and some of the twists and turns, ups and downs that we experienced as citizens during those 8 years. Great book.

A good book that looks at Ronald Reagan's entire career including the events leading up to and following the assassination attempt. A lot of more recognizable names than some of the other Killing books, a good chunk of which are still around. A must-read for any history aficionado.

This quite interesting because it is history that happened in our lifetime and which we can have a historical perspective on. The country is divided about his legacy but RR worked hard and did what he thought was right for the US.
