A warm, personal portrait of Ronald Reagan, "A different drummer" brims with recollections from a relationship that has spanned three decades. A former aide and longtime family friend, Michael Deaver worked with the former chief executive for twenty consecutive years. Now he offers his memories of Ronald Reagan as governor, president and friend. Reagan remains a mystery even to biographers with total access. But in "A different drummer", Deaver writes not only of Reagan's dizzying highs, but also shares the lows, including the tough times that would test the strength of their friendship. Finally, he shares a poignant look at Reagan today as he battles Alzheimer's. This is Nancy Reagan's "finest hour," Deaver writes, a validation of the greatest love story he has ever known. With anecdotes that are insightful, entertaining, intimate and surprising, "A different drummer" sheds remarkable new light on an American icon admired by many and understood by few.
