Kudos for Kate Reading and her presentation of the first volume of this biography, which follows Eleanor from birth to FDR's election in 1933. Reading never succumbs to the temptation to "read"; rather, her well-modulated narration assumes the listener's interest throughout its twelve hours. Potentially tedious passages are fascinating, and sections dealing with Eleanor's controversial love life are intriguing rather than sensational. This stunning rendering will engage all listeners, including those with little interest in politics, and leave them eagerly awaiting the next volume. R.B.F.
