From Library Journal:

Previously overlooked about Roosevelt, says Beasley, editor of The White House Press Conferences of Eleanor Roosevelt , is "the obvious": She became the most influential woman of her day through skillful use of the media. Roosevelt built a career, advanced her causes, and managed the press as no woman ever had. Largely a chronicle of these activities, the book would have been more valuable had it compared Roosevelt's efforts to what women before or after her had done, or to what her own husband was doing concurrently. The book's best parts, describing the unusually symbiotic relationship between Roosevelt and a circle of women reporters, might also have been elaborated. A marginal academic purchase. Robert F. Nardini, M.L.S., Chichester, N.H.
