Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 - 12-- An in-depth look at Roosevelt with a wealth of detail about his life, from his sheltered childhood to his long and momentous presidency. There are many biographies of FDR, but this one really provides readers with insight into his character and personality, largely though Larsen's examination of two areas--his ambition and his long struggle to regain his career after suffering from polio. She shows readers how his disability gave FDR the added dimension of compassion, which allowed him to break away from old political traditions and lead the nation during the Depression and the second World War. She discusses his special relationship with Eleanor, whose influence on him was tremendous. The overall tone is admiring, but Larsen also points out Roosevelt's faults, including his affair with Lucy Page Mercer and some of his political deal making, which was at times quite ruthless. The real strength of this book is its combination of biography and historical detail. Larsen examines world events, and then explains how FDR's actions often had an impact on them. Her look at the Depression is excellent, and although the section on World War II is not as good, it does not affect the book greatly. A center signature of well-produced, black-and-white photographs rounds out the presentation. This title has a more historical focus than Devaney's Franklin Delano Roosevelt: President (Walker, 1987), and is a fine addition to biography collections. --Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO
