This book follows Franklin D. Roosevelt from childhood, through his presidency and WWII, until the end of his life. It does a great job of really documenting not only his life, but the history of America from the early 1900s until after WWII. What I found to be really interesting was the complexity of the man in the office. He was not always a great man, but that doesn’t mean that he was always a bad man. He had his good days and his bad days. He had great issues that he followed through on, that helped to end the great depression. However, he was also a bit wishy washy on some very important issues, including but not limited to equal rights. You may be surprised at what you learn. I also enjoyed the pictures, as many of them really painted the picture of the twelve tumultuous years that FDR was in office. Overall, it was very interesting and informative!
