Format: Hardcover
The ideas which she explores are as relevant today as they were when this book was first published in 1963. While some facts have changed (for example, the Soviet Union no longer existing), the pressures on young people have changed little. She was a strong believer in people taking responsibility for themselves and their world, but realised that certainly at the time of writing the general education of young people was not giving them enough of an opportunity to think for themselves. It would be a safer, kinder world if more people were to take on the ideas presented by Eleanor Roosevelt in this book.

Mrs. Roosevelt is no doubt one of the greatest women of American history. Her book, TOMORROW IS NOW, is a collection of Mrs. Roosevelt's ideas about our country which are still very prevelent in today's society. I suggest that you read this book.

Format: Paperback
Eleanor Roosevelt was an essential leader in the furtherance of international human rights, the dignity of the individual, and the creation of institutional structures and vision for a more just, humane and functioning world. At the end of her life, having experienced so many things from her unique perspective, and despite having written other ground breaking books on these subjects, she felt the profound need to convey these final messages, a lasting gift to us. With nuance, vision and optimism, her book, Tomorrow is Now, provides unique wisdom for anyone interested in understanding and creating a better world. With a moving Forward by former President Bill Clinton, and Introduction, by major Roosevelt historian, professor and civil society expert, Allida Black, this is an essential read. It should be on the required reading list for college and high school students everywhere.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Dad of Divas TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 31, 2012
Format: Paperback
This was such an interesting book, and one that has stood the test of time. I have always been impressed with Eleanor Roosevelt, for her humanitarian efforts and strong willed determination in everything that she did in her life, and all of this truly was shown in the writing of this book. I was amazed to see how relevant the concepts here are today, so many years after the book was originally published. I love the empowering tone of the book and how it uplifts the young and encourages them to reach for more! I truly believe that all should read this book as it will make you think differently about how we see our youth and what they can and should be able to accomplish in today's society!

Very timely re-printing of this essay -- share with friends as a special gift. You will be surprised at how history repeats itself, and Eleanor Roosevelt gives us a perspective to work from - in this society. Thank goodness.
