Publisher's Summary

The longest-serving President in American history, Franklin D Roosevelt led the nation through its two most lethal challenges of the 20th century - the Great Depression and the Second World War. This is a collection of FDR's most stirring speeches, from his First Inaugural Address ('the only thing we have fear is fear itself"), to his speeches outlining the New Deal and opposing the "economic royalty" ("I welcome their hatred"), to his call for a declaration of war with Japan ("a date which will live in infamy"), the Atlantic Charter, and his joint statement with Stalin and Churchill at Yalta.

No wonder he's one of the best Presidents we had.

What did you love best about FDR: Selected Speeches of President Franklin D Roosevelt?

The number of speeches they found, quite an impressive collection. The only downside is they aren't in the right order for some reason.

What was one of the most memorable moments of FDR: Selected Speeches of President Franklin D Roosevelt?

Must I pick one, cuz I can't.

What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

I liked everytying, but Roosevelt's accent doesn't sound New Yorkish for whatever reason.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not an extreme reacitn, but it's very impressive tha they wre able to find recordings on theses speeches.

Speeches need to be identified!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

There's probably a better way to listen to these speeches out there. Nothing on the app or on the audio identifies which speech you are listening to. I ended up googling the first few lines of each one to find out when and where it was given.
