This book is fascinating about the 32nd President of the United States. FDR at a young age overcame so many obstacles. At a young age, he was judged on his looks and skin complexion. He had many fights at the boarding school yet he survived. In politics, FDR had been a bit divisive as a young politician. He used to work for President Theodore Roosevelt but change his direction due to a conflict of interest supporting President Woodrow Wilson. And when he staked out his political destiny, he was successful however he met defeat with dignity. It was Rochester, NY that gave FDR a fighting chance for his political future, and he thanks them in this book, which made him a powerful governor. He knew what it was like to be judge and undermined. He believed that character and faith and hope can overcome any obstacle. As President, he hesitated to recognize America's slaveholders' past, he believed in the good of America's Second President and chose him over America's Seventh President to celebrate at the White House and among his supporters. FDR knew the implications that race and political division can have on a presidency. FDR's book describes how he had to fight the supporters of Hitler before World War 2. He saw Hitler's movement persuading America and he took every measure to end the propaganda. FDR set out to do what Hilter could not do in front of the American public with his diplomacy, recognization, power, and eloquence. He showed Hilter to be 'deranged' and he deactivated him by careful, rational planning. FDR had "open the door" for America to have nearly the world as its allies. FDR allowed countries no matter how rich or how poor to join the fight and support ending Hilter's Axis and his Nazis. FDR was no stranger to working with people of diverse backgrounds and he promised them "a share in the glory" and this proves the true opposite of Hitler and his Axis. FDR rewarded the world with peace when America and its allies won. And he even believed that "enemies of war" should have a pathway for redemption and that tainted leadership should be punished. FDR believed "Thou shalt not lie" and "Thou shalt not steal", these were his keys to policy and what he expected from his family, friends, and supporters. FDR never believed that he was the smartest or cleverest, he believed that he was meant to be decisive and lead surrounding himself like President Jefferson with the greatest minds of his time, no matter gender or race. The book details how his wife, Eleanor was his "right-hand person", she would do the things that he found impossible, run the race that seemed almost unbearable, being the matriarch of a family dynasty while keeping her husband's health intact. Eleanor Roosevelt, like many of his closest friends and supporters, were the "conscious of FDR", showing him the true America, where inequalities lie and the hopes and fears of the American Public. Eleanor Roosevelt took one more step and join the oppressed as she learned from President Woodrow Wilson's wife who made decisions for her husband when he was ill. Eleanor Roosevelt reinvented the role of First Lady. No one ever knew why FDR ran for a fourth term even though they believed the third term was due to World War 2 until this book, where he explains that he asked his family. FDR's presidency was about family values, relying on their strength, building up their weakness, and maintaining love and respect.
