The author was one of President Roosevelt's closest confidantes, and -- according to Mr. Moley -- the real author of most of the ideas and measures that marked the early days of the New Deal. Though he left public office in September 1933 to become editor of Today, Mr. Moley claims to have enjoyed close connections with the President until 1936. He kept a detailed diary and preserved a mass of documents, on which he draws for the wealth of "inside" information that crams this very indiscreet book.
