Product Details


“Just when you thought you knew everything about Franklin D. Roosevelt, think again. Joseph E. Persico [is] one of America’s finest historians. . . . You can’t properly understand FDR the man without reading this landmark study.”—Douglas Brinkley, professor of history at Rice University

“Persico’s exploration of FDR’s emotional life is fascinating.”USA Today

“Persico is judicious in his treatment of these sensitive matters. . . . He understands that Lucy Mercer helped FDR awaken his capacity for love and compassion, and thus helped him become the man to whom the nation will be eternally in debt.”Washington Post Book World

“A stylish and well-written book filled with interesting characters, marital dramas and spylike subterfuge.”Chicago Tribune

“A powerful narrative that rarely fails to pull you along to the next chapter. ”Louisville Courier-Journal

“Utterly absorbing.”Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
