This groundbreaking book pulls back the shroud of awe and the cloak of time enveloping FDR to prove convincingly how flawed his economic policies actually were, despite his good intentions and the astounding intellect of his circle of advisors. In today's turbulent domestic and global environment, eerily similar to that of the 1930's, it's more important than ever before to uncover and understand the truth of our history, lest we be doomed to repeat it.
