The President, the Pope, and the Prime Minister is a sweeping, dramatic account of how three great figures changed the course of history. All of them led with courage -- but also with great optimism. The pope helped ordinary Poles and East Europeans banish their fear of Soviet Communism, convincing them that liberation was possible. The prime minister restored her country's failing economy by reviving the "vigorous virtues" of the British people. The president rebuilt America's military power, its national morale, and its pre - eminence as leader of the free world. Together they brought down an evil empire and changed the world for the better. No one can tell their intertwined story better than John O'Sullivan, former editor of National Review and the Times of London, who knew all three and conducted exclusive interviews that shed extraordinary new light on these giants of the twentieth century.… (mais)

I am about half way through it and this book is fabulous! I am understanding so much more about events that happened when I was a kid. These were three amazing people. We have them to thank for the fact that we still have some freedoms in this country. They put a screeching halt to communism and communist thought, the world over, for a decade...unfortunately we allowed it to come back.

I LOVED this book. It filled in gaps of my understanding of the 1)principles of liberty, 2)the events that occurred during my mission service for two years (1989 and 1990), and 3)the great spirituality of leaders that I already admired. Now I know why they stood for what they did. They are SO inspiring. We need three more just like them. ( )

Absolutely great read on what each of these three giant figures in history did to bring down communism. I was particularly struck about the Pope's side. It was mostly new stuff to me and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. ( )

For a gen-Xer like me, this was an interesting recap of the events that I mostly ignored during my childhood. I did feel that the book skipped around a bit too much chronologically. It generally flows from pre-election to post-communism, but there were times when it would skip backward a dozen years between two paragraphs. I found myself double-checking the dates multiple times.
