"The Economist Magazine called this biography 'a masterpiece' and 'deserves to become the standard one-volume life of FDR.' Praised by the right, like Kissinger and Buckley, and the left, like Clinton."
"Pulitzer Prize, Francis Parkman Prize and National Book Award winner. FDR's great work to save civilization from Hitler and fascism, and assert a new post-war world, places him as a giant of history."
"Bancroft Prize and Francis Parkman Prize. Schlesinger's multi-volume "Age of Roosevelt" is the definitive history of the depression era. Volume I covers to and through the long collapse under Hoover."
"FDR's fireside chats built a close bond with America. In his first chat, days after taking office, he charmingly reassured listeners that banks were safe, stopping the non-stop collapse under Hoover."
"FDR was a masterful leader. He tactfully pulled America from isolationism to destroy evil Hitler. Then he built a new 'Americanism' foreign policy based on American values - ideological yet realistic."
"Classic book on Hitler's dark rise to power during the depression, the world war he started, and Nazi crimes. 55 million died in WWII. FDR tactfully pulled America from isolationism to destroy Hitler."
