    1. Even though I was still somewhat young when Ronald Reagan first became president, I remember being mesmerized when he spoke. He had a tremendous ability to tell a story that kept my attention even when he spoke of things my young mind couldn't yet comprehend. While this journal, of sorts, of his stories is interesting, I quickly realized that writing was not his strength. I suspect that if I found audio recordings of these same writings, I'd listen to the end, yet in written form, I found myself [...]


    2. Stories In His Own Hand consisted of different stories and sketches which were written by Reagan, mostly to be read over the radio. They are so short and of such a varied nature that it would be impossible to offer you a summary of each or even to provide you with a general idea of their style.That said, there were a few entries that stood out to me. One was the story of ten Vietnam veterans who returned to Vietnam to help villagers recover from the devastation done there by living in community [...]


    3. What comes out of STORIES IN HIS OWN HAND is Reagan’s simplistic – sometimes excessively simplistic views on life. Coolidge read Plato. Reagan read Sports Illustrated. Nixon read Cicero. Reagan read the funny pages.One should not sell Reagan short, claiming he lacked intellectual curiosity. Reagan was an avid reader of newspapers and contemporary political thought. He was an intelligent man gifted with incredible insight into the American character. Just like Kennedy (who was no Rhodes Schol [...]


    4. A collection of mostly pre-presidential radio commentaries with photographs of President Reagan's scripts in his own hand. I found some of the most interesting an insightful essays to be "Women", "History", President Coolidge", "Lawrence Welk", "Socialism" and "Pollution #1. Particularly the one on pollution, which is a reaction to a conversation he was having in 1975 with his children - they were convinced of the "bad" in the world of that day as he conveyed to them how much less-polluted the w [...]


    5. Well Ronald Reagan continues to amaze me. I have always admired the man since he became govenor of California, but I had no idea how much more he was. After having read this book I learned that Ronald Reagan was Witty and insightful. the stories he told were told with a purpose in mind, and he was a great story teller. This is not a hard book to read and in fact I read it cover to cover on an airplane flight from LA to Houston. I also had to put it down a couple of times because it hit a couple [...]
