About
In 1921, FDR contracted polio. Just as he began to set his sights on the New York governorship - and, with great hope, the presidency?FDR became paralyzed from the waist down. FDR faced a radical choice: give up politics or reenter the arena with a disability, something never seen before. With the help of Eleanor and close friends, Roosevelt made valiant strides toward rehabilitation and became even more focused on becoming president, proving that misfortune sometimes turns out to be a portal to unexpected opportunities and rewards - even to greatness.

This groundbreaking political biography richly weaves together medicine, disability narratives, and presidential history.
