Description
"Peggy Grande's memoir is the book to read on Ronald Reagan's post-presidential years . . . Among the most unique and touching [books] ever done on the man . . . Wonderful." — The AmericanSpectator
In The President Will See You Now, devoted Reagan insider Peggy Grande shares behind-the-scenes stories, intimate moments, and insights into one of America's most beloved presidents. Grande, who started in the Office of Ronald Reagan as a college student and earned her way into a coveted role as the president's Executive Assistant, offers an unparalleled perspective on the post-presidency of a political icon.
Grande's stories and never-before-seen photos show a unique, private side to a public figure and leader who reshaped conservatism, ushered in an era of prosperity, and helped spur the end of the Cold War. Grande reveals what day-to-day life was like in Reagan's California office, including the former president's relationship with the First Lady and his interactions with friends, world leaders, and everyday Americans. Grande recalls how Reagan kept a vigorous schedule for years after he left the White House, his robust engagement with others, and ongoing political advocacy. Despite his eventual Alzheimer's diagnosis, Grande shows how Ronald Reagan remained true to core beliefs, his gentlemanly kindness, and his undying hope for his country.
Today the Reagan legacy looms over American politics more than ever. Grande reminds readers why: When Ronald Reagan was president, we not only loved ourselves but also loved America, and the American values he represented: faith, optimism, and patriotism.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: First-time writer and narrator Peggy Grande was personal assistant to President Ronald Reagan for 10 years after he left the White House. Grande is graceful in her word choice and sentence construction, and that grace smoothly transfers to her warm, relaxed narration of insightful stories of working with Reagan and getting to know the man and his family. The PDF document that accompanies the audio volume provides full-color, captioned photographs that enhance the listening experience. Grande skillfully weaves intimate and adoring accounts of working with the Reagans and raising a family at the same time. There's great finesse in this audiobook's construction and performance, making it one not to miss. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine

        January 2, 2017
        With this glowing photo-packed memoir of President Ronald Reagan’s last California years, Grande, a veteran member of Reagan’s staff, fondly shares remembrances of the conservative icon at work and play. Grande came to the White House as a college student and quickly rose to executive assistant from 1989 to 1999. She writes that her work with Reagan strengthened her optimism, values, and patriotism. From a staunch Republican view, she chronicles the failures of Democratic leadership, past and present, and lauds the vitality, humility, traditional beliefs, and vision of the popular 40th president. Grande describes the Great Communicator as “a man who knew himself, knew his mind, confident in his abilities.” In addition to describing Reagan’s meetings with Hollywood friends, political leaders, and citizens, Grande reveals the powerful bond the president had with his wife Nancy, his key adviser and protector. This is an impassioned, highly enjoyable memoir that includes candid behind-the-scenes photos of the Reagans after their withdrawal from public life.
