    Description

    Eleanor Roosevelt was born into the privileges and prejudices of American aristocracy and into a family ravaged by alcoholism. She overcame debilitating roots: in her public life, fighting against racism and injustice and advancing the rights of women; and in her private life, forming lasting intimate friendships with some of the great men and women of her time.

    This landmark biography provides a compelling new evaluation of one of the most inspiring women in American political history. Celebrated by feminists, historians, politicians, and reviewers everywhere, it presents an unprecedented portrait of a brave, fierce, passionate political leader of our century.

    One of the Great Americans I knew too little about

    I thought I knew a lot about Eleanor because I had read so extensively about her husband and his leadership. What I learned was that everything I knew and thought about Eleanor was seen through a distorted lens. Eleanor was so much more than just a wife and mother. What Eleanor was was a woman who should be seen as one of the towering figures of the 20th century, who transcended the limits that society imposed on women. Eleanor was a mother, an educator, a writer, a political figure, a feminist, a humanitarian--above all she was a woman who rose far beyond what could have been expected of her. Perhaps most of all what I was struck by was the tragedy of a woman whose passionate nature had to be publicly suppressed because of her husband's political goals. This is a well-written and beautifully performed book. I wish I could personally thank the author (Ms. Cook) and reader (Ms. Reading) for bringing this giant figure to clear view in this wise and sympathetic biography. Both are models of their respective forms.

    Excellent detailed history but long

    Excellent book - very detailed and interesting and provides great insight into Eleanor during her formative years. My only complaint is that at 18 hours this is quite long and there are two more volumes ! Overall I would recommend.

    Brilliant

    Excellent biography of ER and what made her the woman she was. The narrator was perfect neither too fast nor too slow. I'm already looking forward to Volume 2

    Great biography, amazing performance!

    I enjoyed this audio book a great deal. I was looking for a comprehensive title about Eleanor Roosevelt, and this has provided what I wanted! I was thrilled that it was a three part series, with each of the books being over 25 hours. I definitely recommend.

    Read like a history textbook

    This one was a struggle. The reading was pompous and pretentious. There were odd pronounciations.

    The Story of a truly inspiring leader

    The biography was interesting and I learned a lot. I couldn’t stand that she referred to people by initials. It seemed lazy, like it was her shorthand while researching and she never got around to cleaning up. I also didn’t like the way she stuck quotes in the middle of sentences, changing who the speaker was without so much as a “she said”. The book included a great deal of biographical information about her friends and associates that wasn’t necessary. In fact, the biographies of her family members was a bit excessive. I would love to Read her story as a novel. It would flow better than this did.
