Mark I would definitely recommend it over Brands's FDR biography. Smith is an engaging writer who offers a lot of insight into Roosevelt.
Val Crofts This is really really well done so far. I had never read a FDR biography before and wanted to learn more about him. This has been a great and fast paced read so far. I would recommend it highly.
Falinda I would also recommend this bio. The author gives a fair and balanced profile of FDR. He describes what he did right and what he did wrong in his public service. He also is very honest about FDR’s private life.
