In popular memory, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the quintessential political "natural." Born in 1882 to a wealthy, influential family and blessed with an abundance of charm and charisma, he seemed destined for high office. Yet for all his gifts, the young Roosevelt nonetheless lacked depth, empathy, and an ability to think strategically. Those qualities, so essential to his success as president, were skills he acquired during his seven-year journey through illness and recovery. Jonathan Darman's Becoming FDR chronicles that journey.

Hosted by Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave., NW, Washington, DC. Learn more here.
