So interesting on so many different levels. The book serves as a self-help manual, a memoir, a textbook on good citizenship and how to become a public servant, a source of small meaningful stories and inspirational tidbits, and a historical document. Written at the end of her life, Eleanor Roosevelt embraced her role as Elder and Public Servant to write a book summarizing the greatest lessons of her life to share with others. In brief, make deliberate effort to overcome your fears, small and large, and do so by living life to the fullest, learning from and serving others with compassionate curiosity. I can see this as a book that will be fun to dip back into at random now and again when in need of insight or inspiration. My new Eleanor Roosevelt motto: You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
