Born in 1884, Eleanor was not satisfied to just be a glorified hostess for her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Eleanor had a voice, and she used it to speak up against poverty and racism. She had experience and knowledge of many issues, and fought for laws to help the less fortunate. She had passion, energy, and a way of speaking that made people listen, and she used these gifts to campaign for her husband and get him elected president-four times!
A fascinating historical figure in her own right, Eleanor Roosevelt changed the role of First Lady forever.

"Excellent concise overview"
It is an easy listen for children (and also acts as a great intro to the subject for adults!), it doesn't shy away from the facts of her life.
Not applicable - this is a brief biography.
He injects enthusiasm which keeps the text moving at a gripping pace - I listened in one sitting.
The First Lady to stand apart.
