Excellent book

by beffy52 on May 17, 2010

I couldn't put this book down. This was a fascinating look at the historical and political happenings of the day. It was interesting and refreshing to get this view through the eyes of a woman, especially one with Eleanor Roosevelt's sensibilities and position. My favorite parts of the book were her accounts of her personal and family life. They left me wishing for more. I got the feeling that Ms. Roosevelt's intent for the book was to provide information that would be interesting and important for history's sake. I suspect that she didn't address issues or events that she deemed too personal, even though what she did write was very candid. One advantage of an autobiography over a biography is that you get a more accurate picture of the person's true attitudes and feelings. This book is invaluable in that respect. I would definitely recommend this book.
