    One thought on “Eleanor Roosevelt: A Personal and Public Life”

    1. This book provided me a more complete history of what was possibly the most dramatic and dynamic time in American history. Eleanor was born in 1884 - 6 yrs before my own grandmother, and died in 1962- 6 yrs after I was born. And still, my understanding of that time span is limited to high school history and a little extra-curricular reading.Knowing a bit about the documented changes that took place here and world wide from the pre-'Great War' period to Kennedy's presidency, I learned much about [...]

    2. It's one of those books that makes you think 'My God life would be easier if I inherited an immense fortune and never had to work a day in my life.' The social elite of the 19th Century. :P

    3. Decent jumping-off point for learning about Eleanor Roosevelt. However, this book is pretty bad. It focuses way too much on the men in her life. The first third is almost entirely about her father, for instance, and every section seems to have a leading man in it for Youngs to define her by. My most repeated annotation is "But how do you know that?" along with "Why would you say that?" This book is stuffed full of conjecture and strange observations. It would have benefited from footnotes rather [...]

    4. This is a good overview and introduction to Eleanor Roosevelt's life. It is not a very personal book and makes few assumptions, but is very well documented. I feel like it gave me a good sense of her ideology and life, but I would like to read a more expansive book. I would recommend this book.

    5. Good start to learning about the life of one of the most incredible women in US history. Her personal life seems exceedingly depressing in this account of her story. I think the author did not do justice to some of the great accomplishments and relationships she had outside of her marriage. Not sure the author gave FDR a fair assessment as he came accross as treating his wife as he would another man and was a compulsive liar and cheat. Hopefully reading an autobiography will give a better view i [...]

    6. Best for those with limited time and seeking a quick overview of Eleanor's life and character.A short biography that gives a quick glimpse into important events in Eleanor's life. Though given the limits of the book's length, it does not delve deeply into either character analysis or too much details. Nevertheless a good intro into Eleanor, and a nice sketch of her key traits.

    7. I really liked this book. I love reading about people, but I don't think I would recommend it to people unless they really like biographies also.
