One of today’s premier biographers, Jean Edward Smith, has
written a modern, comprehensive, indeed ultimate book on the epic life of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
This is a portrait painted in broad strokes and fine
details. We see how Roosevelt’s restless energy, fierce intellect, personal
magnetism, and ability to project effortless grace permitted him to master
countless challenges throughout his life. Smith recounts FDR’s personal battles
and also tackles head-on and in depth the numerous failures and miscues of
Roosevelt’s political career.
Summing up Roosevelt’s legacy, Smith gives us the clearest
picture yet of how this quintessential Knickerbocker aristocrat became the
common man’s president. The result is a powerful account that adds fresh
perspectives and draws profound conclusions about a man whose story is widely
known but far less well understood. Written for the general public and scholars
alike, FDR is a stunning biography in
every way worthy of its subject.
