The Man He Became
The Man He Became How FDR Defied Polio to Win the Presidency By Tobin, James Large Print - 2014

This book is a snapshot of a very difficult period in FDR's life : from the contracting of polio in 1921 to his election as president of the United States. The author's basic premise is that FDR became such a great president because of his struggle with polio and the determination he had to hopefully walk again. The book also disproves the prevalent belief that FDR did everything to hide his disability and that Americans did not know. A very interesting book about this man and a history of polio at the turn of the 20th century.
