Note Originally published: New York : Simon & Schuster, 2013.
BIBLIOG. Includes bibliographical references.
Summary Here, from James Tobin, is the story of the greatest comeback in American political history, a saga long buried in half-truth, distortion and myth -- Franklin Roosevelt's ten-year climb from paralysis to the White House. The Man He Became affirms that true character emerges only in crisis and that in the shaping of this great American leader, character was all.
