Very interesting and engaging. Well written. I would definitely recommend.
A vivid account of FDR's rise to power and presidency, but I was disappointed by a lack of thesis. The title was provocative, but the implications of FDR's policies on class issues, or the contrast between populist policies and his background (his uncle was a Republican of some note) are not explored.
I have given this a 5 perhaps with the hope (ever optimistic?) that this might actually lead to the desired resolution! Sophie at 3 1/2 is very interested in the concepts here and has requested this book half a dozen times in 2 days, but I'm not sure that it's going to change her behavior anytime soon either. Still, she really likes Charlie the dog and I found it to be a cute (and accurate) representation of one kind of family (i.e. not co-sleeping).
