My Turn: The Memoirs of Nancy Reagan . To long-time Reagan staffer Deaver, it has often seemed as if there were two Nancy Reagans, one whom the public loves to criticize and a private, gentler version. In his latest book, Deaver (A Different Drummer) writes about a Nancy Reagan most people have never gotten to know. Deaver is not blind to his subject's failings, but he argues that the public has never really understood what Nancy is about.

My Turn The Memoirs of Nancy Reagan By Nancy Reagan with William Novak Illustrated. When she heard that her stepson, Michael, was toying with the idea of writing a book about his father, the President, Nancy Reagan picked up the phone, as she so often did. ''When I called Mike to ask him about it, he said, 'I've been asked to do a book about Dad for lots of money. Of course,' I replied. I could get lots of money for walking naked up and down Pennsylvania Avenue. It's a question of taste

This is an inside look at what made Nancy Reagan tick. She certainly was the well-loved wife of her Ronnie, and the feeling was mutual. I feel I understand Nancy much better as a woman and as a First Lady after reading this book. I always wondered why she couldn't warm up a little more to Raisa Gorbachev when it seemed like the whole state of the Cold War depended on it. Her husband and Gorby seemed to hit it off so well. The story reveals that Raisa was a complete bore on any social occasion. She didn't know how to converse politely but turned every opportunity, be it only a small intimate coffee with the First Lady, into a platform to parrot the communist ideology. Nancy wasn't able to handle this. (Interestingly, Barbara Bush, being more of a people person, was able to reach out and make a genuine friend of Raisa.) I was always turned off by Nancy's doll-like figure and obsession with expensive clothes. She makes the point that many of the expensive designer dresses she wore and some of the jewelry were loans or gifts from the designers. Since the First Ladies' clothes are paid for by the President,not the country, Nancy could not understand the criticism she received. The estrangement of the Reagans from their children during the presidency was very sad. Although this distressed Nancy greatly, she did not know how to bridge the gap. Nancy's love and support for her husband was very exemplary, and perhaps he could not have been the president he was without her at his side. My opinion of Nancy was much improved after reading this book.

I'm not very political but picked up this book to learn more about Nancy Reagan and surprisingly, it's a great book. Very easy to read and I feel like I'm becoming friends with Nancy. I loved Ronald Reagan but never paid much attention to Nancy. After she died, I was curious about her and the relationship she had with her children which made her sound like a bad mother but so far, I'm on Nancy's side. Love this book really and I don't read a lot, so that says something about how good this book is.

This book was extremely well written. It followed the Reagan's life well as I remember it and Nancy always expresses her feelings in a very diplomatic way. I can only say that Nancy led an extremely interesting life with Ronald, with never a boring moment to spare. This is a good read for anyone. I don't think anyone realizes, or has the slightest idea, of how exhausting the first ladies life can be, especially with a second term to fill.

A pleasure to read. Nancy kept my attention page after page. When I got to the last page, I wished she kept right on writing

I enjoyed this memoir by Nancy Reagan. It was presented honestly. Wish she had written a bit more about her relationship with the children. All in all, an interesting presentation of important events and people in the 80's.

This book was so interesting! It fills up the blanks in Ronald Reagan's biography. And it gives a wonderful description of the real lady that Nancy Reagan was. Jackie Kennedy and her are my favorites. I recommend reading her husband's biography first.

The book was exactly described in the market by the seller. I received way ahead of the day given to me by Amazon. Excellent service!! I am currently reading Mrs Reagan book. I bought it because I wanted to know why she opened the door to her husband's schedule of out of state trips reviewed by an Astrology chart. Especially when the President had such a strong walk with God. Something did not make much sense to me. Well Nancy didn't have the faith her husband Ronald lived. She really wasn't raised with a parent who had much faith besides going to church once in awhile when she was younger. So I am getting a better picture of who Nancy Reagan was, and with her recently passing away earlier this month I feel more understanding with what she had to put up with while in the White House. Her words of being totally misunderstood by the Media by her actions to made some improvements while there. Its a really good book on the inside scoop of how the interior of the White House looked like and the great improvements that she made to make it feel like a home for her and Ronny. Apparently the inside of the place hadn't been painted since Roosevelt was in there, all the wonderful antiques were moved out of there and put into storage place miles away. She rescued these pieces and put them back in the rooms where they needed to be according to old photographs of many years before. She had a natural knack of being an interior decorator and had fun doing it. Well that's about far I as I have gotten in her book. I will update more later.
I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to read Nancy Reagan’s view of events that occurred when her husband was President.
