5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting story-- almost reads like a novel July 12, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The author went to college with Teddy and stayed in touch with him over the years. To him, Teddy is a hero-- but that does not detract from the story. The author is an excellent writer and knows which points are important. With this book, the reader gets a good sense of the times and conditions of the era. Roosevelt's sense of ethics comes through. I recommend this book to history lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book March 31, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am very familiar with FDR but only knew Theodore Roosevelt as a rough rider and establisher of national parks. clearly the author is cheerleader for TR but that does not detract a bit. The history given in this book of our nation in this post civil war period, the epics of the bosses, and the political problems of dealing with monopolies and power hungry politicians was well presented and interesting. I came away with a profound respect for 'TEDDY'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the read September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book, while adulatory, is also very revelatory as to the politics and history of the day. It is impossible not to admire the man, and realize what one voice raised in well-founded outrage, when combined with such an able and determined politician, can achieve. Written by a schoolmate of Roosevelt, the language is delightfully true to the period and always lively. And the parallels with current national conditions are uncanny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Preface September 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I suggest that anyone interested in Teddy Roosevelt read David McCullough's Mornings on Horseback before this book. I believe that knowing "Teedy's" early years will help immensely in understanding this book. I have just downloaded it and will supplement once I have read this one. McCullough's book is only a B+, but well worth reading. It addresses Theodore's parents, family, and time, and his early, sickly, childhood. j.b.h.

Gave this 3 stars compared to Roosevelt's autobiography being 5 stars and more of a page turner. Easy reading though.

It was informative, well written. It was insightful to learn about his many political position and his significant influence on American culture, the government, as well as his integrity and sense of justice and fairness in governing.

I enjoyed reading this book. It's informative, but not tedious. I've read several biographies about President T. Roosevelt and this one is as good as any of them. I learned more about the early 20th century and the U.S. becoming a major country in the world.

Already learned a few things about TR I didn't know before (never knew he was so sickly). This is written in an older style so it takes a tad more concentration than newer books. Read more
