Craig Shirley is the author of Rendezvous with Destiny, Reagan's Revolution, and the New York Times bestseller December 1941. He was the first Reagan Scholar at Eureka College, Reagan's alma mater, where he taught a coursed titled "Reagan 101." He is a regular commentator on many network and cable shows, and contributor to national publications, and The London Telegraph has called Shirley "the best of the Reagan biographers." His latest book, Reagan Rising: The Decisive Years, 1976-1980, was just published by Harper.
