Ention and the convention itself The high points of this book or me were the descriptions and mini biographies of all of the key players I was generally aware OF MOST OF THE NAMES BUT most of the names but very little about most of them This isn t a 5 star book in my opinion largely because Neal goes a small bit overboard in describing the blow by blow of the convention itself Of course despite this the book isn t too long and as I indicated above is highly readable If you are looking or a book about the rise of Franklin D Roosevelt to his nomination book about the rise of Franklin D Roosevelt to his nomination the Democratic Convention in 1932 you will be thoroughly disappointed with this book In act if you are looking or anything about FDR and his run to becoming president in this book you will be disappointed Happy Days Are Here Again is about how broken up the Democratic Party was at the time and all of the various candidates that were running against FDR This book goes much in depth about the other candidates and their policies which helps paint a picture of all of the different platforms within
