    I loved this book!! The narrator was exceptional, especially when using the "voice" of Theodore Roosevelt to quote him. The subject of the biography was a remarkable man, although his slaughter of animals was disturbing to me. There is much that I did not know about him, and he was almost super-human! An altogether fascinating read from start to finish.

  • Ethan K.

    Great book, great narrator. Though, do be warned: this is T.R.s life leading up to his presidency ONLY, it does NOT cover his presidency itself. For that, try Theodore Rex by the same guy who wrote this one (Edmund Morris)

  • Brad B.

    Great book Narrator did a great job as well.

  • Jonathan H

    Great book. It was very easy to follow and very descriptive. After listening to it, I feel like I thoroughly know Theodore.

  • Edward Reynolds

    One of the most invigorating and informative accounts of the "Pre-presidential" live of teddy.

  • Steve Blakeman

    A pretty good book. The narrator did a good job. I can't wait to read the second book in the trilogy.

    I sent this one back before finishing. I'm not sure why everyone is rating this so highly because I thought that the narration was terrible. I was incredibly bored throughout and I love Theodore Roosevelt. He is my favorite president! Incredibly slow and painful.

  • Anonymous

    Includes details left out of many other biographies. Just the thing for TR enthusiasts.

  • Michael Scott

    While a good biography, I found the narrator to be a tad more theatrical for my tastes. This biography glossed over some important details, IMHO though. For this period in Roosevelt's life, I much preferred "Mornings On Horseback: The Story of an Extraordinary Family, a Vanished Way of Life, and the Unique Child Who Became Theodore", by David McCullough. Every book he's ever done has been detailed, thorough, and an excellent read. For a biography of this period of Roosevelt's life, I'd recommend that, ofer this one by Morris. I still look forward to Part 2, Theodore Rex, by Morris though.

    Excellent book, that ought to be required reading for every red-blooded American! Roosevelt is an inspiration for us all, as a leader, an American, and a president. The narration is excellent, and the writing never boring.
