Summary When Things Went Right is a colorful and insightful portrait of Washington at the beginning of the Reagan-Bush era (November 1980-March 1983) as lived and recorded by an insider in his personal journal.

In his journal entries and subsequent annotations he describes how the Reagan Administration began to grapple with the major national and international challenges it inherited. <p.
