In A Different Drummer, Deaver writes of the Reagan he has known: a man who was shy and deplored talking about himself, who would rather spend a party talking to a laborer than policy wonks; a man whose convictions remained unchanged over the course of his life, who never used pollsters to decide his position on issues; a man whose idea of relaxation.

Love all things Reagan except his two offspring by Nancy. Thank God for Michael Reagan!

Reagan made it all look so easy -- a simple clarity which unnerved many, but enabled a revolution.

Deaver has managed to match his old boss again. This time by making the telling of this American Classic look easy!
The difference from others' earlier attempts is that unlike those who've tried to talk about being there, he ignores the academic and chattering-class' over-analysis. Like The Gipper, Deaver wisely insists on just sharing a great set of stories.
Reading "A Differnt Drummer" is a lot like listening to The Great Communicator himself. Even for a political agnostic, I was swept up by the clarity of Deaver's perspective. He carries you through three decades with insight and soul.
If you are a Reagan fan, this is a Must Read.
But more important, if you don't much like politics, Reagan, or the '80's, it is a delightful and valuable surprise. It flows. It fills in the gaps. And finally peeking inside the reality -- is fun.

This was an incredibly moving book about the relationship between Reagan and Deaver. Reagan was often criticized for his reliance on delegation, but this book shows how Reagan showed masterful judgement in picking the people around him. Deaver was not a "yes man" and Reagan could not have succeeded without his wise counsel. At the same time, Deaver was keenly aware of his role in supporting and contributing to one of the best presidencies in history.
Deaver's own story is also moving and instructive. Even men of great integrity can have lapses in judgement. It takes true courage and dignity to address his own issues the way Deaver does in this book.
God Bless Michael Deaver and Ronald & Nancy Reagan.

I actually got the audiobook version. You get to hear it in Deaver's voice.

This is a fantastic book. Regardless of whether you agreed with Reagan's policies or not - Deaver was in the inner circle. He had solo meetings with Reagan from 1966 - 1986. He had a close relationship with Nancy Reagan. He was a student of people. And... he ended up moving from skeptic to admirer. If you're looking for Reagan's flaws - you'll get a few - but not much. If you're looking for his virtues - you'll get quite a bit.
This is simply a great book that has been written about how Reagan operated and how he was successful in getting things done.

Reagan was known as The Great Communicator. His supporters loved it. His detractors hated it. Deaver gives great insight into how he learned his craft. There are a lot of tips if you want to learn to communicate your ideas better. People think it was natural. Au contraire, Reagan worked at it. He honed his skills for years.

Other tidbits - we really get a sense for where Reagan would compromise, and where he'd stand firm. For his top priorities, he wouldn't give an inch usually, but to get there - he'd give on stuff that wasn't as important to him. It may have taken him a while - but he was patient - and was a master at negotiating to get what was most important to him - and leaving the opponent (usually) a way to save face.

Reagan spent a ton of time reading, writing, listening - far more than we were led to believe when he was president. Turns out he was very self-taught. He reached out to a wide variety of experts - and when it came to decisions, marched to "a different drummer". He'd stay the course even if no one else came around. Usually he'd made up his mind that he was headed the right way - and people just needed time to hear his message to come to the same conclusion.

We learn that he treated everyone equally from the janitor to Gorbachev.

You don't need to be a Reagan conservative to appreciate his strengths. And yes, he had weaknesses. Yet... I'm a believer in learning from people's strengths and applying them where it makes sense to better myself.

This is the best book about President Reagan written by an insider because Mike Deaver was the top Reagan insider since his time as a gubernatorial candidate in 1966. Full of heartwarming anecdotes about Mr. and Mrs. Reagan, this 30-year snapshot in time is so simply yet beautifully written that you'll find yourself saddened that it had to end. Mr. Deaver recounts the good times and bad with the President and First Lady, and also reveals a bit about what it's like to operate behind the scenes in the White House. He also discussed some of this personal challenges and how he worked to resolve them. If you are pining for the days of political civility, sunny optimism, firm leadership, and well intentioned and professional Washington staff, add A Different Drummer to your reading list.
