Eleanor by David Michaelis 536 pages

Michaelis’s thorough, well-documented biography of Eleanor Roosevelt, follows one of the most lauded women in American history from her birth to her funeral. Although he touches on a few of her regrettable choices, most of Eleanore tells the history of a woman who had her share of sorrows, but still became a forceful, energetic voice for the voiceless. What I found most interesting was how Eleanore Roosevelt evolved from a sheltered upper class WASP into a champion for all minorities.
