summary
Benze portrays Nancy Reagan as a forceful presence behind the Oval Office’s closed doors, unafraid to take on Donald Regan or Oliver North. He documents her clear influence on presidential appointments, links her quirky penchant for astrology to her show-business past, and traces the creation of the “Just Say No” program to her years in Sacramento, showing that it far exceeded the public-relations motivation that her detractors claimed.
