I can't imagine any other president who has led a more interesting life than TR. Integrity and moral character were embedded in him from childhood and those virtues guided him throughout his life. He took no shortcuts, accepted no excuses for laziness, demanded physical fitness for himself and others, and inspired confidence in those around him whether they be frontiersmen, legislators, police and military personnel or "ordinary" citizens. It's been a long time since we have had a president who displayed such character and depth of experience....probably not since Bush I, or Ike before him. A very entertaining and inspiring read.
