Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Goodwin has pulled off the double trick of making Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt seem so monumental as to have come from a very distant past, and at the same time so vital as to have been alive only yesterday.”  New York Times
“With an uncanny feel for detail and a novelist’s grasp of drama and depth, Doris Kearns Goodwin brilliantly narrates the interrelationship between the inner workings of the Roosevelt White House and the destiny of the United States. Goodwin paints a comprehensive, intimate portrait that fills in a historical gap in the story of our nation under the Roosevelts.”  Amazon.com, editorial review
“Goodwin’s narrative, based upon interviews and other primary research and deeply informed by the scholarship of others, will keep company with the best works in the vast Roosevelt canon and will absorb and delight a wide readership.”  Library Journal
“People often say they don’t like to read history because it’s so dry. They apparently have not read history the way Goodwin writes it…By the time we finish this more than eight-hundred-page study, we feel as if we have been present during the events described, as if we have known the players.”  Booklist
