"A sheer and informative profile, satisfying to any general reader wanting an introduction that imparts, as the author promises, a "reliable account of what made Theodore Roosevelt so important in American history."' - Booklist
"Gould gives readers cradle-to-grave coverage of the man who became our 26th president. He uses the theme of fame as the prism for viewing Roosevelt's life, and this works well, as TR spent his adult life drawing the public eye." -Kevin R. Kosar, The Weekly Standard
"This significant biography can be surmised that Roosevelt's life might be divided into three areas: his rise to the White House, the two terms in the White House, which were lively, and achievements in world diplomacy." -San Francisco Book Review
"How do you say anything meaningful in a 73-page comprehensive biography of one of the most complex figures in American history? Here's how... Gould's book is a quite worthy addition to the ever-expanding canon on Roosevelt."--Lawyers, Guns, and Money
