Excellent book. This is definitely an eye opening treatise that sets the record straight as to what really went on in the 1930's under Roosevelt's "leadership." Roosevelt is finally held to a real objective standard and his "New Deal" is revealed for what it truly was - a raw deal for the entire nation, that continues to haunt us over 70 years later. This is an excellent evaluation of Roosevelt and the New Deal - full of many examples of poor conduct, greed, power grabbing and an overall immoral and selfish manipulation of the populace. I consider this a must read for anyone interested in history.
