This book was a real eye opener to me on the politics of the day and how an assassin's bullet can put a man in the right spot at the right time. Although hungering for fame and a principal role in US affairs, it is clear that this Roosevelt would not get it except by an assassin's bullet. Despite extreme patriotism ad jingoism for a short while Teddy was the right man at the helm. This short account should be read by every American for an account of the unlikely way that the US became involved in Cuba, Puerto Rico and other former possessions of Spain.

There was a lot of self-serving and braggadocio in Teddy's actions but he WAS a brave man with personal style and resources and love of the people other American politicians could regard jealously.

I took out this book from a library, loved it so I has to get a copy of my own. It is phenomenally written, and is very inspirational for anyone who has any goals in this life.

Outstanding! McCullough and others have done wonderful things with Presidential biographies; however, Morris has brought Roosevelt alive like no other. The struggles young Roosevelt endured are a inspiration. His genius is detailed in true color. I couldn't wait to pick up Theodore Rex. Looking for a hero in todays rough and tumble? Look no further than TR.

Teddy Roosevelt is surely one of the most captivating figures in history, and this book is an incredibly lively and vivid chronicle of his rise to the American presidency. Edmund Morris writes in delightful prose with colorful imagery and funny stories, and provides an astounding level of detail. You will not want to put down this book; it is as mesmerizing as Tolkien's Ring. It is hard to imagine a better-written story. Mr. Roosevelt is abundant in charisma, intelligence, and drive. If you can only read one book on the man, choose this one.

Format: Paperback
"The Rise Of Theodore Roosevelt" tells the outstanding story of the pre-presidential years of this remarkable individual. In an attention-holding style, Morris relates the anecdotes known to all TR fans. In addition to the well known facts, Morris reveals lesser known facts which help us to understand TR and his career.
Beginning with he President's New Year's Day Reception of 1907, the book quickly jumps back to a very youthful TR. In the following pages we read of the close relationship between TR and his father. We read of the father who, by example and word, taught TR his greatest virtues of honesty, social responsibility and concern for others. It was this father who drove him through the streets of New York to get him over his asthma attacks as well as the one who told him that he "had the mind, but not the body" and that he must build his body. When TR was contemplating a scientific career, it was this father who told him that he could pursue such a career, "if I intended to do the very best that was in me; but that I must not dream of taking it up as a dilettante", but that he would have to learn to live within his means. Theodore Roosevelt, Sr.'s payment of a substitute during the Civil War left his son with a sense of guilt which could only be assuaged by his own military service. We learn of the shattering effect that this father's death had on the Harvard student. As president, TR would remark that he never took any serious step without contemplating what his father would have done.
Much attention is given to the "Roosevelt Museum of Natural History" assembled by the young taxidermist.
