520    "With a searching new analysis of primary sources, NBCC 
       award winner James Tobin reveals how FDR's fight against 
       polio transformed him from a callow aristocrat into the 
       energetic, determined statesman who would rally the nation
       in the Great Depression and lead it through World War II. 
       When polio paralyzed Franklin Roosevelt at thirty-nine, 
       people wept to think that the young man of golden promise 
       must live out his days as a helpless invalid. He never 
       again walked on his own. But in just over a decade, he had
       regained his strength and seized the presidency. This was 
       the most remarkable comeback in the history of American 
       politics. And, as author James Tobin shows, it was the 
       pivot of Roosevelt's life--the triumphant struggle that 
       tempered and revealed his true character. With enormous 
       ambition, canny resourcefulness, and sheer grit, FDR 
       willed himself back into contention and turned personal 
       disaster to his political advantage. Tobin's dramatic 
       account of Roosevelt's ordeal and victory offers central 
       insights into the forging of one of our greatest 
       presidents"--|cProvided by publisher.
