Publisher Description

"A fascinating account of an extraordinary moment in the life of the United States." --The New York Times

With the world currently in the grips of a financial crisis unlike anything since the Great Depression, Nothing to Fear could not be timelier. This acclaimed work of history brings to life Franklin Roosevelt's first hundred days in office, when he and his inner circle launched the New Deal, forever reinventing the role of the federal government. As Cohen reveals, five fiercely intelligent, often clashing personalities presided over this transformation and pushed the president to embrace a bold solution. Nothing to Fear is the definitive portrait of the men and women who engineered the nation's recovery from the worst economic crisis in American history.

Disappointed

Great book, I am disappointed however that it's for sale by apple for 12.99 and I bought the paper copy for a dollar at the dollar tree. I thought the point of these ebooks was to make the books cheaper and easier to read.

Amazing

This book was one of the most amazing books I've ever read! Highly, highly, highly recommended reading, not just because of how the actors changed America forever, but as a study in management and managing people of string wills that are not easily managed!

Not what I was expecting

This was an interesting read on FDR's cabinet and the faceless players of the New Deal. History accredits much of the New Deal and it's programs to FDR, but very little is said about the figures that influenced Roosevelt. This was the point of the book obviously since FDR looms in the background of the tribulations of people like Perkins, Hopkins, and Moley. Personally, I was hoping to learn more about FDR but this book is great window into Washington during the New Deal.
