Geoffrey Ward's companion book for the documentary series he did with Ken Burns on the three Roosevelts is insightful. It explores the dynamics, personalities, strengths, and flaws of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor, as well as their extended family. The backdrop of history they made in turn is unveiled as Ward goes along, and there's a wealth of photographs to accompany the text. The Kennedys are often thought of as America's political dynasty, but it's the Roosevelts who really deserve that title, giving two truly great presidents and the best First Lady of them all to the country. Required reading for anyone with an interest in the trio.
