From the bestselling team of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard comes Killing Reagan, a page-turning epic account of the career of President Ronald Reagan that tells the vivid story of his rise to power -- and the forces of evil that conspired to bring him down.

Just two months into his presidency, Ronald Reagan lay near death after a gunman's bullet came within inches of his heart. His recovery was nothing short of remarkable -- or so it seemed. But Reagan was grievously injured, forcing him to encounter a challenge that few men ever face. Could he silently overcome his traumatic experience while at the same time carrying out the duties of the most powerful man in the world?

Told in the same riveting fashion as Killing Lincoln, Killing Kennedy, Killing Jesus, and Killing Patton, Killing Reagan reaches back to the golden days of Hollywood, where Reagan found both fame and heartbreak, up through the years in the California governor's mansion, and finally to the White House, where he presided over boom years and the fall of the Iron Curtain. But it was John Hinckley Jr.'s attack on him that precipitated President Reagan's most heroic actions. In Killing Reagan, O'Reilly and Dugard take readers behind the scenes, creating an unforgettable portrait of a great man operating in violent times.


  • Outstanding, entertaining history book

    By joegunter99
    O’Reilly and Dugard deliver once again. Details we never knew, such as Hinckley’s previously unreported skill with the cheap-but-deadly Saturday Night Special. Also, new details about the tragic cognitive decline of our beloved 40th president. Must read.

    I have read many & will continue to read more biographies of people that have made their mark on history. Killing Reagan is a well written testament to ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Inspirational! Give it a whirl, you won't regret it!

  • Only 3 when Regain took office.

    By molley dog
    I was to young to know what a Regain was like as a president. I just got a insight to what a great man he was. This was a good book to start with.
