Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher first met in April 1975, before either became a national leader. Both were political loners with strong beliefs, and they developed an affection and devotion to each other through working together. Simon Vance straddles the gap between presenting history and creating a dramatic story with a cultured narrative voice and easily recognizable voices for the two main figures that capture their personalities perfectly. His approach makes for an interesting listen that doesn't distract from the details. Nicholas Wapshott is a fan of Reagan and Thatcher but doesn't hesitate to illustrate their conflicts on the Falklands, Grenada, and nuclear disarmament. Wapshott offers some good lessons on political partnership. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
