Book cover of Eleanor by David Michaelisby David Michaelis

It has been a long time coming for a new biography of Eleanor Roosevelt—even as there have been some great ones, and Roosevelt herself was prolific—but one that can speak to new research and new perspectives is cause for delight. Roosevelt was dynamic, driven and creative, intelligent and empathic, funny and thoughtful. No less than remarkable was her ability to listen to voices of experience, of those in power and those without, and to transform and advocate to meet need as it was presented. Michealis reminds us how relevant and exciting she remains.
