    Blanche Wiesen Cook recreates Eleanor Roosevelt in all of her roles -- as a visionary, an activist, a political wife, and a woman far more independent than we knew. No other First Lady has had a greater influence in the course of democracy in this century, and no other book about Eleanor Roosevelt captures the complexity of her character - her wit, her passion, her boldness, and her commitment to greater dignity and security for all women and men.

    Story

    As interested as I am in this biography of Eleanor R, I can't listen to this recording. The voice of the author is very irritating to me - to other Audible friends as well. We had to let go of this one. Very disappointing to have paid for a book only to have to put it aside because of the poor presentation.

    The publishers review should have included this flaw!!!

    Much better to have a professional reader than an author's voice that's not trained for the job.
