Freidel (history emeritus, Harvard U., U. of Washington), whose four- volume biography of the young FDR concluded with the launching of the New Deal, now offers a one-volume complete biography. Although he details Roosevelt's life before his presidency, the focus is on the Depression and wartime periods. This will probably become the standard one-volume biography

Freidel examines the personal and public life of the 32nd president of the United States, giving particular emphasis to his New Deal programs.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Freidel portrays FDR as a decisive visionary who rescued the nation's economy and defended democracy on a worldwide basis, disputing opponents who perceive him as shallow, incompetent and dictatorial. ``This is as fine a one-volume biography of the 32nd president as we are likely to get,'' said PW.

The book is good, as a history book. There's no color, though. Personal events affecting the actors are missing. FDR's mother's death gets less than one sentence.
