Description

Historians, politicians, feminists, critics, and reviewers everywhere have praised Blanche Wiesen Cook's monumental Eleanor Roosevelt as the definitive portrait of this towering female figure of the 20th century. Now, in her long-awaited, majestic second volume, Cook takes listeners through the tumultuous era of the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the gathering storms of World War II - the years of the Roosevelts' greatest challenges and finest achievements.

In her remarkably engaging narrative, Cook gives us the complete Eleanor Roosevelt - an adventurous, romantic woman, a devoted wife and mother, and a visionary policymaker and social activist who often took unpopular stands, counter to her husband's policies, especially on issues such as racial justice and women's rights. A biography of scholarship and daring, it is a book for all listeners of American history.

Stimulating, provocative, well-researched

A solid examination of Eleanor Roosevelt's life from the beginning of FDR's first administration until the beginning of his third term. Kept my interest riveted throughout and makes me eager to the next volume.

Good Content/ Poor Delivery

I very much enjoy listening to biographies and I love history. Eleanor Roosevelt is a woman who in todays world would very likely have become a presidents. This has a lot of content and further information than the first book. Both are read by Kate Reading and I do not like the style of the reading. The sound is snobbish and aristocratic. I lose focus on the content and draw judgements about the person reading the book. This takes me away from valuing the book even more. It would be great if Eleanors stories of her life were read by a woman or even multiple women with differing backgrounds. Somehow, when I think of Eleanor, there is a feel of aristocracy simply due to her background and then, there is the boisterous "I am coming into my own..." It helps a story come to life if the reader could convey this essence.

Excellent history book

Eleanor Roosevelt was an amazing woman so ahead of her time. Thanks to her we enjoy lots of services that she created or helped with today.
