    Well balanced While concise I have come away with far more than I ever knew of this remarkable lady. This reading presented a balanced portrayal of her political and civil life, and made her relatable yet admirable.

    These books are meant to be short compilations of facts and assessments of a topic. I got a general understanding of the various elements that made up the spectrum of Eleanor Roosevelt’s life. A limited context is provided and judging whether it is a completely accurate portrayal of her life is difficult. Overall the book provides adequate highlights and contrasts that made up this complex historical figure.
