Today I went to a talk by Steven F. Hayward about his new book, Greatness: Reagan, Churchill, and the Making of Extraordinary Leaders. Hayward (pictured here with me) talked about the similarities between Ronald Reagan and Winston Churchill, in their lives and their political views, and what made them great leaders.

Many people think Reagan and Churchill are very different, but after reading the book, I am amazed at the parallels between them. There were numerous examples of resemblances, which on the surface would look like complete differences.

Greatness is a wonderful book about two great heroes.
