Echoing the refreshing frankness of the author, narrator Vivienne Leheney delivers Eleanor Roosevelt's reflections and advice without any unnecessary fanfare. Leheney hits the right note from the start as Roosevelt declares, "You learn by living." Drawing from her very public life and offering her personal beliefs, Roosevelt's title underscores her encouraging message to listeners. While there are moments when Roosevelt's word choice reveals the age of this work, her good advice is timeless. Leheney's delivery is measured and confident, though at certain inflection points, listeners may wonder where Roosevelt herself might have placed the emphasis or if a wry smile lurked as she was writing.
