Movie Nights with the Reagans by Mark Weinberg

Movie Nights with the ReagansMark Weinberg, former special advisor and press secretary to President Ronald Reagan gives us an inside look at that time in America. We see it through the movies that were popular then. We witness some of the inner workings of the Reagan White House. We get a behind the scenes look at state dinners and Camp David.

Mr. Weinberg is an unabashed fan of both the President and Mrs. Reagan. This is not a tell-all book nor does it deal much with politics except in the context of the movies being watched by most of us during that time. (Star Wars – yes we watched; Bedtime for Bonzo – probably not). It gives some insight into the family dynamics of the Reagans but is not intrusive.

While there are no earth-shattering revelations in the book concerning the Reagans, it does give us an almost nostalgic look back into that period in our history.

I received a free copy of the book from NetGalley and Simon & Schuster in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
