really liked it

Ok, so this happened to be part of the reading for my econ class, but it might have been a book I would have picked up and read regardless. I've never really had any formed opinion about FDR and the new deal, but most high school history books are in favor of everything he did. This book is AMAZING in that it breaks down every single policy and mistake that he and his administration did which ultimately prolonged the Great Depression. Powell is very vocal and VERY biased against FDR (obvi) but he does have a lot of good points.
