Overview

Recently named "Woman of the Century" in a survey conducted by the National Women's Hall of Fame, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote her hugely popular syndicated column "My Day" for over a quarter of that century, from 1936 to 1962. This collection brings together for the first time in a single volume the most memorable of those columns, written with singular wit, elegance, compassion, and insight—everything from her personal perspectives on the New Deal and World War II to the painstaking diplomacy required of her as chair of the United Nations Committee on Human Rights after the war to the joys of gardening at her beloved Hyde Park home. To quote Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., "What a remarkable woman she was! These sprightly and touching selections from Eleanor Roosevelt's famous column evoke an extraordinary personality."

    A Must-Read!

    I absolutely loved this book as it offered an insightful portrait of a remarkable woman in her own words. I enjoyed Eleanor Roosevelt's sharp wit and humor and her valiant stand against the social ills of her time. Anyone reading this book will come away with a deeper understanding and interest of the former First Lady through her often personal and poignant remarks.

    MY DAY - over many days

    To see the scope of Eleanor Roosevelt's mind and interests, this is the perfect book -- there are chatty entries and deep entries that cover how Eleanor (our most political first lady) saw the world.
