    " T.R. and Lincoln are by far the most interesting Presidents I have read about so far. "

    " I listened to this as an audio book and it was excellent. Probably my favorite of all TR biographies. I've listened to several and this one had plenty of detail I had not heard before in other books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 2/25/2012

    " I've done quite a bit of research and read several other books on T.R. and was really looking forward to it. While the information within was interesting, the writing was extraordinarily dull making it a chore to push forward. Disappointing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Wilson | 10/25/2011

    " Whatever your politics, it is very difficult to read this book and walk away without a real admiration for Teddy Roosevelt the man. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph D. Walch | 9/3/2009

    " The best Teddy Roosevelt Documentary ever written. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Andy | 12/28/2007

    " Read about 100 pages. Deadly dull writing, seemed like this was written in a foreign language and translated into English by some other egghead. The first Edmund Morris book was much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi | 3/14/2006

    " Theodore Roosevelt was an absolutely fascinating man, but, frankly, not very likeable. Also, although this book was very thorough, it was not particularly well written. "
