I wrote the book description for this entry. I thought it was worth adding to the database.

Reading this book was like sitting on Mrs. Roosevelt's couch, visiting over Roastaroma tea and milk as I received counsel, inspiration, correction, disagreement, delight, and admiration of this remarkable political figure, woman, mother.

This memoir of Eleanor's work with the UN is just a glimpse of her extraordinary life, albeit a very inspiring one . Eleanor is one of my heroes- and yes this book is a good example of why.

Read the three chapters re: her work with the UN.

Ch. V With the UN in London: Learning the Ropes
Ch. VIII "My Most Important Task" The Human Rights Commission
Ch. IX The Paris Sessions: Successes and Some Failures

Only 4 stars b/c I wish she had written more!
