Great read. This book did a nice crescendo to FDR's life. The end was particularly exiting with FDR's strained relationship with Stalin. It also showed intimate aspects of the relationships of the people around him. It is a must read for those who are interested in FDR!

I look forward to reading this - - with trepidation! If the NY Times author who wrote this didn't include TNEC and FDR's final action: giving the goahead to the DOJ to sue the Wall Street 17, I will be very outdone and unkindly towards this author!
