Audio Book Summary

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 consider myself a disciple of Ronald Reagan. I have read 11 books about him and a few by him. This audio was insightful and sad. As a kid, President Reagan was larger than life to me. As a middle aged man listening to this book, I realize he was just as mortal as I. GREAT PRESIDENT and REPUBLICAN! Long live the memory of Rawhide!

    I thought this new narrator is an improvement over O'Reilly himself reading the book. I do question some of the research.

    Great. This could have been a book about Nancy Reagan. Loved everything about the story. It did make Ronny appear senile or dumb at times though

    Initially, a bit bummed it wasn't read by Bill O'Reilly. I did not think to check since he has read several of his earlier books. A bit long with some irrelevant info but still a good listen.
