Not only does the book provide insight into Eleanors background and personality but the constraints of the society that she attempted to change.
Do I like her as a person after reading the book ? Not too sure. For me her position on votes for women was wrong , but not only was she a product of her time but also of her class.
The ambiguity that surrounds her sexuality remains unresolved in the book - but arguably that is irrelevant. The progress, changes and influence that she brought to bear on social policy and 'women's issues' is arguably second to none.
A truly remarkable woman and this book makes superb reading.
