He is the author of Index of Leading Environmental Indicators, published in 14 editions from 1994-2009, and its successor, the Almanac of Environmental Trends (www.environmentaltrends.org).

He is the author of a two-volume narrative history of Ronald Reagan and his effect on American political life, The Age of Reagan: The Fall of the Old Liberal Order, 1964-1980, and The Age of Reagan: The Conservative Counter-Revolution, 1980-1989 (CrownForum books). National Review has called the first volume “grand and fascinating history,” comparing it favorably to Macaulay’s History of England. The Times Literary Supplement said that “the book reads at times like a grand historical drama, a kind of War and Peace of the American century, complete with romance and adventure and tragic characters, a thrilling survey of what we might have thought to be familiar history but which appears here quite transformed.” William Niskanen, chairman of Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers, called volume 2 “simply the best history of the Reagan presidency,” while former Secretary of Education Bill Bennett said “this is the book we have been waiting for.” His other books include Churchill on Leadership, and Greatness: Reagan Churchill, and the Making of Modern Statesmen.
