Format: Paperback
Excellent compilation of FDR's best speeches--27 in all. As with the collection of Lincoln's speeches that I read not too long ago, these speeches lose nothing when being read (and, with FDR, a great many of these speeches are available on various forms of media to be heard and seen). He was a master at the art of speech-making, and making you feel that he was speaking directly to you, rather than to an entire gathering or to millions over the radio.
Highly recommended, as it gives us a glimpse into the difficult times of FDR's administration, and FDR himself.

I love this book... a wonderful collection of FDR's speeches, which are so inspiring. My copy is thoroughly worn, and I can almost hear FDR's voice as I read. In addition to the speeches, there are short introductions that give you a little background about what was occurring at the time of the speech. It's a perfect size paperback for keeping on hand when you have moment to read on the fly. I bought my original copy at the Little White House (FDR's home) in Warm Springs, GA; and I just bought a second copy as a gift.
