Glued binding. 768 p. Contains: Illustrations. Audience: General/trade. From the bestselling author of "The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys" and "Lyndon Johnson and the American Dream" comes a compelling chronicle of a nation and its leaders during the period when modern America was created. Presenting an aspect of American history that has never been fully told, Doris Kearns Goodwin describes how the isolationist and divided United States of 1940 was unified under the extraordinary leadership of Franklin Roosevelt to become, only five years later, the preeminent economic and military power in the world. Using diaries, interviews, and White House records of the president's and first lady's comings and goings, Goodwin paints a detailed, intimate portrait not only of the daily conduct of the presidency during wartime but of the Roosevelts themselves and their extraordinary constellation of friends, advisers, and family, many of whom lived with them in the White House. Bringing to bear the tools of both history and biography, "No Ordinary Time" relates the unique story of how Franklin Roosevelt led the nation to victory against seemingly insurmountable odds and, with Eleanor's essential help, forever changed the fabric of American society.

A great work by an author I consider to be the best writer of historical novels. Her reasearch
is thorough. Some truly interesting facts that give wonderful insight into the educational and sociological norms of the times. This author takes the reader through the daily life and times of the people ...
What an incredible book. It is the most insightful look at two of our country's most intelligent and insightful leaders. An easy read as it plows through the events of World War II and Eleanor's incredible contribution to American life, albeit ahead of her time.
Wonderful history of the war years back home. This book presents things you never learned in your American History class! The "behind the scenes" dealings-both political and personal- help paint a more accurate picture of those war years and the attitudes of those in the power seats. A long, but great ...
This is a great book by a fine historian who really knows how to tell a story. You don't have to be a student of history to enjoy this book. And don't be put off by its size; it's a very entertaining read.
Goodwin uses remarkable sources to find the human side of both FDR and his estranged wife who ...
