    History for people in a hurry. This is a good cliffs notes history of the great depression. Definitely an introduction to the topic. It condenses but does a good job with little distortion for its brevity. Not bad it would be good to give a high school kid.

    "They are unanimous in their hate for me- and I welcome their hatred ". Franklin Roosevelt weathered the hatred but rode over the depression. The book brings forth the causes for the Great Depression and the manner in which this unprecedented crisis was managed. An interesting read.

    America is faced with the worst Depression the United States of America has ever been through. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt was voted in as President in 1933, he had a Epic Depression Era to deal with. Franklin D. Roosevelt was President from 1933 to 1945. In 1929 the Stock Market crashed, then in 1929 through 1930's Banks were closing up to 7,000 Banks closed. There were 25% to 30% of the people out of jobs. Farmers that provided food could no longer afford to run their farms. Families w America is faced with the worst Depression the United States of America has ever been through.

In 1929 the Stock Market crashed, then in 1929 through 1930's Banks were closing up to 7,000 Banks closed. There were 25% to 30% of the people out of jobs. Farmers that provided food could no longer afford to run their farms. Families were going hungry, men were leaving home to find work across the States. Mom's were having to work to provide food. Grandparents were caring for their grandchildren, grocery stores were giving credit to families with no interest just so people wouldn't starve. Then in 1936 Roosevelt had men working on roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, and post offices. Also, Roosevelt provided jobs in state parks to improve camping area, shelters, picnic tables, etc. Franklin D. Roosevelt created these jobs to help America get back on their feet and to provide families with a pay check. Then just as things were getting better, Pearl Harbor was bombed by the Japanese. Now Americans were involved in World War II. This is a quick overview, I lived through the great depression I can remember it. I lived with my grandparents, we had a large garden and my grandmother canned what we didn't eat so we always had food. If you have not read this book, please do so. The book goes into more detail and politics, you will learn about the New Deal Act and the Agriculture Act to spread funding to the nation's farmers. These books are so good, you learn so much from each one. I love each one I have read.

    While I can't leave a full 5 stars, mostly for typos, this expose' is a pretty good view of one of the darkest times in American History. I was born post World War II, but my Mother lived through the depression and I heard many stories of the era that so affected and entire nation as well was a world event. Was Roosevelt responsible for getting the country out of that era and into a more prosperous time? Why was the Japanese Ambassador in the White House when Pearl Harbor was bombed?

Some say it was one way to bring an end to the depression by allowing the Japanese to bomb our "Pearl". I don't have those answers, but this expose' gives the reader a decent view of the times we know as the "Great Depression." Finally, I might add, the writer in my opinion could have made a notation that it was "Faith" that sustained much of our population, at least that is what my Mother told me growing up.

    I think that the book did a great job as far as explaining the causes of the Depression, some of the mistakes that were made in dealing with it, and explaining Roosevelt's New Deal and the steps that were taken to try to recover from the Depression. One thing that I was a bit disappointed with was that the book almost entirely dealt with the Roosevelt presidency and the New Deal throughout the decade. I realize that there's only so much that you can fit into a one-hour read, but I was hoping to r I think that the book did a great job as far as explaining the causes of the Depression, some of the mistakes that were made in dealing with it, and explaining Roosevelt's New Deal and the steps that were taken to try to recover from the Depression.

I realize that there's only so much that you can fit into a one-hour read, but I was hoping to read more about the lives of the people of the country during the Depression. Things like the depth of poverty, the migration of people (as portrayed in The Grapes Of Wrath), the Dust Bowl, and the overall desperation of a large part of the country's population were only briefly touched upon.

    I found this short history about the Great Depression very informative. I learned about the state of farming in the United States in the 1920's, the lack of oversight and caution with regards to the stock market, and how the United States foreign policy not only harmed the American economy, and how all these factors led to the depression becoming a global phenomenon. The great depression took an entire decade for the United States to recover from. After reading this book, I can definitely draw c I found this short history about the Great Depression very informative.

It is a cautionary tale for what could happen again in the future. If we do not learn from our history we are doomed to repeat it.

    Excellent short book about The Great Depression... I am a history buff!! I was also born in England and moved to the states at 9 years old so these short books are not only an education about events we learned in grade school or high school, but it refreshes our brain in remembering them too! I confess, I do remember taking a semester course about FDR which took forever to learn what I read in this great short book! It’s worth every penny or through Kindle Unlimited...Highly recommended for all an Excellent short book about The Great Depression... I am a history buff!!

    Good book This was a very clear, concise book about the Great Depression and the 1930's in America. My parents both lived during the 1930's. My mom always had plenty of non-perishable groceries on hand. She said often that if her family had lived elsewhere than on a farm during the depression they most likely would have gone hungry. I learned a lot about the laws enacted during the 30's to see that another depression did not happen.

    A favorite period for me in American history. My dad's medical education at the university of Michigan was cut short by it. Mom and her mother tended a huge backyard vegetable garden. Grandpa foraged for firewood for the coming winter. His Dodge car rested on wooden blocks in the garage. The iron mine where he worked was closed so this was a poignant read for me. There was no social safety net.

    Although this is a relatively short book, it is full of interesting information about the Great Depression. This is not your typical dry history book. The author explains the causes of the Great Depression, along with the effects, and what was done to not only help people who had nothing but to make sure it didn’t happen again.

    Another good piece of writing by hourly history . The great depression and FDR. It is unimaginable how America could go into a great depression. But remember it was early 20th century and it was still building it's economy. Remarkable how FDR administration turned it around with his New deal policies.

    Having lived through the Great Depression the book renewed many memories. The title, however, would be more descriptive if the word POLITICAL had been added at the beginning. As usual "Hourly History" is easy and enjoyable reading presenting information in a neutral, factual manner.

    Short but excellent read! This is a great little resource to get important facts of the Great Depression and to remember them! I learned a little more about Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover that I hadn’t known before as well.

    I Learned so Much! This was a fascinating and educational read. I learned so much about that time period in our country's history and the political issues of the time. Some things never change and yet some changes are still benefiting us today.

    Interesting and short When I started reading I thought why this book. And after finishing the book I am glad I read it. I had forgot a lot of the Depression era from high school. And it was easy to understand.

    A good short review of The Great Depression Although this little book is informative of politics and major events, it is difficult for me to conceive leaving out the impact on the people and the hardships they encountered.

    My thoughts Not bad for a quick history. Thought it leaned a little to the left. Did make me want to do some research on my own.

    Love love Love!!! I knew a bit about The Great Depression as my father lived through it. However, this answered a lot of questions and filled in a lot of gaps. Worth the read.

    Great quick read I didn't remember as much as I wanted to from high school history classes about this era. This book was a helpful way to fill in that gap quickly.

    I had no idea. Well let me tell you it is so nice to read a non- fiction book that is fact not fiction. Very informative of the political side of the era.

    Short and sweet! The author of this book did quite well in delivering the story of the Great Depression. It was kept in a language most reader's will understand.
