A proud moment in the 226-year history of the New York Stock Exchange came on March 28, 1985, the day President Ronald Reagan rang our Opening Bell. Bob Spitz is the author of a monumental new biography of our 40th president: Reagan: An American Journey and joined us Inside the ICE House to talk about it. Spitz has written a substantial oeuvre of books on people and things that transformed American popular culture, from the Beatles to Julia Childs to Woodstock. Reagan adds to this pantheon, the story of a man born into poverty in the Midwest, who by luck and determination worked his way from young broadcaster to Hollywood actor, Governor of California to President of the United States.
