Summary:

No Ordinary Time is a monumental work, a brilliantly conceived chronicle of one of the most vibrant and revolutionary periods in the history of the United States. With an extraordinary collection of details, Goodwin masterfully weaves together a striking number of story lines--Eleanor and Franklin's marriage and remarkable partnership, Eleanor's life as First Lady, and FDR's White House and its impact on America as well as on a world at war. Goodwin effectively melds these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was born.

    I listened to an abridged audiobook, which could not do the book justice. I left it with mixed feelings, believing the author spent a lot of time justifying the behaviors of Eleanor or Franklin. She didn't need to do that. She had effectively portrayed them both so well I felt they could have been sitting down next to me. They breathed. Who could want for more in a biography?
