Not so much about FDR as about a handful of people who brought the New Deal into being. A fascinating group, too, with quite a range of backgrounds. I found myself fond of Frances Parker in particular.
My main reaction to the book, though, was jealousy. They did so much, and so quickly, and for the most part just ignored the haters. I wish the current administration would do half as much.
