In a world that lionizes FDR, I found this take on him as a political beast refreshing. This won't be the only book I'll read on Lindbergh's legacy, but it's clear that Lucky Lindy was the victim of the worst kind of yellow journalism & political backstabbing. The author, James Duffy, is sympathetic to Lindbergh, but his research appears researched & sound. And isn't it about time someone is?

I'm thankful that I picked this up off the Barnes and Noble bargain table.  When the author's preface includes a defense of Sarah Palin,  Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, you know it's not a serious examination of the relationship between FDR and Charles Lindbergh. Don't waste your time!

This book is ridiculous. I can only hope that Barnes & Noble did not realize their mistake when they placed it in the History section instead of the Humor section. The author could not have been serious about any of this. It is pure nonsense.
