I found this enjoyable. The writers journey was interesting and ultimately life affirming. The performance was also good. A nice listen.

I had not read this book since 1984, when it came into vogue for obvious reasons. I found it more relevant today, in the information, populist age than I did then. Read/listen to it. You will not be disappointed. The narrator is very good. I enjoyed it.

in short, practice with feedback makes perfect. some of us knew this, but the telling is in the how.

I bought this as an audible deal of the day and did not know what to expect. I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed it. I am not used to the "series" style of books, so need to find the next book to listen to. However not sure it's available.

Bought this as part of the Christmas promotion. watched the TV series back in the day. Things have moved on but this is still very relevant and enjoyable. I would recommend.

I bought this at a discount and the reviews were good. It may be just me, but I kept asking myself all the way through things like "how could that have worked?" and "what significance did that bit have?". It seemed a little disjointed. The narration was good, but the voice felt young. Given that I felt the story was questionable, I felt it needed an older voice to be more believable. Hence I give 3 stars overall and 4 for performance.

Well written book and deals with the issues but found the American narration annoying as I felt it did not do the British authors words justice.

I loved the life and it's telling. Jackson was a soldier, lawyer and statesman, living in a time of great change and expansion. Brands book is great at bringing out the man and the times.

Very Good

I enjoyed this very much. Some may say it did not go into the details of a Conrad Black or Walter Isaacson. However, it did give a good flavour of the character of Reagan. It also told the good and the bad. Very enjoyable.
