Publisher's Summary

Eleanor Roosevelt was born into the privileges and prejudices of American aristocracy and into a family ravaged by alcoholism. She overcame debilitating roots: in her public life, fighting against racism and injustice and advancing the rights of women; and in her private life, forming lasting intimate friendships with some of the great men and women of her time.
This landmark biography provides a compelling new evaluation of one of the most inspiring women in American political history. Celebrated by feminists, historians, politicians, and reviewers everywhere, it presents an unprecedented portrait of a brave, fierce, passionate political leader of our century.

Great biography, amazing performance!

I enjoyed this audio book a great deal. I was looking for a comprehensive title about Eleanor Roosevelt, and this has provided what I wanted! I was thrilled that it was a three part series, with each of the books being over 25 hours. I definitely recommend.
