"More than a bibliography, the present work includes a biographical sketch, a Reagan chronology, credits and detailed casts (including minor characters) from his films, information about Reagan's early stint as a radio sportscaster, and even a paragraph describing Reagan and advertisements [including his now-famous full-page ad for Chesterfield in a 1948 issue of Life] . . . ." - American Reference Books Annual
"Perhaps most helpful to researchers are the newspaper clippings about Reagan in the Academy Library [to which there is no index]." - Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television
