I loved this book because it was fun to read and it taught me a lot about American history. Eleanor Roosevelt was an extraordinary woman, but at the same time she was down to earth and very human. She's appealing because you can relate to her and many of her personal challenges, and also look up to her at the same time. ( )

Detailing the life of Eleanor Roosevelt through words and pictures this biography takes the reader on a journey from her birth to her last days. The book highlights the accomplishments and contributions of the First Lady as she often acted as the "eyes and ears" of the President. Even after FDR's death, she continued to play an important role in world affairs and served on the United Nation and helped shape humanitarian, educational and cultural values of the organization. The book also has a great wealth of pictures to support the words within the text. ( )

A natural follow-up to Freedman's biography of FDR, this impeccably researched, highly readable study of one of this country's greatest First Ladies is nonfiction at its best.
