This vivid portrait shows a nation at its best and at its worst through the lens of the first American presidency truly impacted by the media age. An FDR biography unlike any other, Together We Cannot Fail offers a new view of how Roosevelt transformed an insular America into the world's most revered and feared superpower.
An exclusive accompanying CD uses FDR's own stirring words to illustrate how he led the nation through the Great Depression and World War II to its ''rendezvous with destiny.''
Historian Terry Golway brings alive how Roosevelt saved America from its worst fears and forever changed how Americans live and view themselves. This unique biography shows how FDR invented and established the practice of the media presidency with his famous fireside chats—the first presidential speeches broadcast nationally from the White House.
