Read full description of the books:
Ghost Scribbler is the compelling autobiography of a writer-Robert Lindsey of The New York Times-who after scaling the heights of American journalism was asked by two very different actors-Ronald Reagan, one of the most popular Presidents in U.S. history, and Marlon Brando, the enigmatic recluse regarded as the greatest actor of his generation-to help write their memoirs, before learning the darkest secrets of the most famous entertainer in the world, Michael Jackson. "Bob has a way with words that has rightly earned him a reputation as one of our country's most gifted authors." Ronald Reagan
