About The Book

A shocking portrait of the 1980s, America, and the woman whose position helped shape the values and policies of the Reagan administration.

Through over 1,000 interviews collected during four years of exhaustive research and reporting, Kelley reveals Nancy Reagan as a superb public performer, a vain, materialistic social climber, a bitter foe and formidable strategist—an American phenomenon.
