The Fireside Chats are an excellent view into the political atmosphere of Great Depression and World War II era United States. One gets a feel for Franklin Delano Roosevelt's progressive and liberal points of view, which is always a positive: FDR himself often presented sound ideas, strongly leaning towards social democracy, seeming to be the most pronounced left-wing President in United States history.

Oh WOW!! This man knew EXACTLY how to run a country!! The stuff he spoke about in these chats is just as relevant today as it was 60 years ago. Every leader of every nation should read this and take extensive notes. There would be a lot less strife and problems in the world if the leaders of today followed FDR's example

Recommends it for: To anyone who wants to know more about the Great Depression & WWII, or American History in general
Recommended to Angie by: saw it in the bookstore
This short book of selections from FDR's Fireside Chats is really readable and very interesting. It was especially interesting reading what FDR said to the people about the Great Depression at the time, and comparing it to what the politicians have been saying about today's recession. Also comparing WWII with Iraq/Afghanistna was interesting. This book is easy to read & short, so really, if your American you really have no excuse not to have read this stuff.
