    From the acclaimed author of John F. Kennedy: An Unfinished Life, the biography of one of America's greatest presidents, Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    'Meticulously researched and authoritative, heroically objective and wide-angled ... Roosevelt is with us again in Dallek's outstanding cradle-to-grave study' Douglas Brinkley, Washington Post

    'Assuredly the best single-volume Roosevelt biography' Eric Rauchway, The Times Literary Supplement

    'Essential ... a master of the presidential biography captures Roosevelt's compassion and sense of solidarity' Greg Grandin, Guardian

    'An insightful, incisive and intelligent one-volume work - and a pointed primer on how things in Washington get done. In a period defined by division, Dallek crafts a pointillist portrait of the four-term president, who knew almost intuitively how to reach consensus' Peter M. Gianotti, Newsday
