    Although Brands reinforces history s general conclusion of Reagan s greatness, he delivers an overall objective assessment of America s revered 40th president Brands s biography distinguishes itself as the most encompassing and definitive work on Reagan to date It chronicles all the essentials his upbringing with an alcoholic father, his start in radio, his years in Hollywood, and his subsequent political career and rise to the presidency The depth and range of the narrative make it impressi Although Brands reinforces history s general conclusion of ...
