What I Saw at the Revolution: A Political Life in the Reagan Era

By Peggy Noonan
On the hundredth anniversary of Ronald Reagan s birth comes the twentieth-anniversary edition of Peggy Noonan s critically acclaimed bestseller What I Saw at the Revolution, for which she provides a new Preface that demonstrates this book s timeless relevance. As a special assistant to the president, Noonan worked with Ronald Reagan and with Vice President George H. W. Bush on some of their most memorable speeches. Noonan shows us the world behind the words, and her sharp, vivid portraits of President Reagan and a host of Washington s movers and shakers are rendered in inimitable, witty prose. Her priceless account of what it was like to be a speechwriter among bureaucrats, and a woman in the last bastion of male power, makes this a Washington memoir that breaks the mold as spirited, sensitive, and thoughtful as Peggy Noonan herself."
