We all think we know what we have to know about T.R., but there is plenty of important stuff in this great American biography.
Besides thinking of him as a proponent of "rugged individualism", I learned many new things by reading this great book.
For example, I never knew that "clannishness" and personal family ties meant so much to him, nor that his personality and ambitions were largely formed by the fact that he had severe asthma as a child; My own mother had the condition, too, and McCulloch's insight into its effect on one's personality was very interesting to me, a retired primary physician.
I now see that out in western North Dakota there's a "Theordore Roosevelt National Park". I hadn't know that these badlands were so important to our western cattle industry, nor that T.R. considered himself a rancher, as well as politician, reformer, aristocrat, rugged individual and devoted Republican.
For anyone interested in either history or politics (or both), I can't recommend this book highly enough.
