I heard a lot about another book on this subject, "The Forgotten Man" by journalist and former WSJ editorialist Amity Shlaes, but decided to read this one instead. The few scholarly people whose reviews of the Shlae's book I found online weren't impressed with it as the author clearly used selected statistics to try to make an ideological point. I wanted to read something by a historian who was a respected scholar in the field so I picked this book. This book is jammed full of facts as to the political, economic and social environment and as a result it is somewhat slow reading. However, it is an excellent and thorough book. The author clearly doesn't idolize or villify FDR - which makes him more credible than many other authors who have written about this period.

I bought this book after reading "New Deal or Raw Deal" and wanted to learn more about Roosevelt's presidency. This book was very thorough in presenting the policies of the president amidst the bad economy.

Only $1 more than older and well used books from a campus bookstore. The book arrived in great condition and has a much nicer cover than the previous edition. Plus the book reads very nicely!
