A DIFFERENT DRUMMER My Thirty Years with Ronald Reagan

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Michael K. Deaver, Cary Harris Nelson

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

While much about Reagan can be debated, there is no debating the significance of his relationship with Deaver. Or that Deaver is a great reader. Known as the public relations whiz in Reagan's White House, Deaver has a voice that sounds like John Chancellor's--deep, clear, and expressive. There is not a stilted moment in this audiobook. Deaver sounds like he is sitting at the fireplace telling stories about a friend. In this case, that friend was a California governor and U.S. president. Presenting a saintly portrait of Reagan, this is hagiography, not biography; Deaver speaks only of episodes about Reagan and aspects of his character. Most touching is the post-White House portrait of Reagan, which describes the impact of Alzheimer's on the former president. M.L.C.
