The two volume set on ER is very good, sort of biography through the prism of events and politics. She was a fascinating woman. The only disappointment is that the set only goes up to 1938.

This is an interesting and well written bio. However, it is puzzling that so few pages are dedicated to ER's life after the death of FDR.

Thoughts or take-aways:

1. ER was so accomplished - her energy and scope of work are amazing - so many accomplishments for a first lady.
2. Interesting perspective on Jews and WWII.
3. I learned a lot about the New Deal and the Great Depression.
4. The role of women in politics in the 30's was interesting. Why did that change?
