FDR: a biography of President Franklin D. Roosevelt by Jean Edward Smith
Thank God for giving me this book to read during my hard time in life. I never expected a biography of the greatest president of the United States in the 20th century would heal me way faster than any selfhelp books or psychiatrists in the whole world would do. I don’t believe one book could intensely influence me and change my thoughts.

The book is so informative and insightful. The author did a lot of researches and went over almost every detail of incidents in relation to the life of Mr. President, including WWI, WWII, important elections, etc.

In a week the book became my most favorite nonfiction. It's the only book that ever made me cry in Starbucks. Mr. President’s story tells me to fear nothing, whenever I feel insecure, and reminds me, whenever I feel upset with something nonsense, there are millions of far more important matters in the world to attend to.

Despite some criticisms on him (e.g. great depression prolonged by the New Deal, secrete military aid to England, and Pearl Harbor attack), in my humble view, he did all the great jobs a great leader of one nation could possibly do in such difficult situations.

The only thing I sadly regret is he never had a chance to see the surrender of Germany a month after he passed away, the formation of the United Nations, and how powerful the United States has been after the end of WWII - all of which he had laid the groundwork for and worked real hard to make them happen.

I once believed those who failed to take good care of their own families or small little things were definitely incapable of handling any situations more important whatsoever. But today I have been convinced by President Roosevelt that a man who somehow fails to save his family relationship may be excellently capable of saving the world.

I love you Mr. President!!
