My Year with Eleanor: A Memoir

My Year with Eleanor - Noelle Hancock A young woman, suddenly unemployed and a year away from turning 30, turns to Eleanor Roosevelt's writings for inspiration. She decides to spend a year facing her fears. The fears that she spends the most writing on are the dramatic ones, written up to be funny: trapeze school, skydiving, stand-up comedy. There are some more serious ones: figuring out her long-term relationship with her boyfriend, stopping reliance on sleeping pills. The book culminates with climb of Kilimanjaro. A quick read. Made me interested in reading more about Eleanor Roosevelt. What I learned about her in this book was pretty interesting.
