Publisher Comments:

Described by the Chicago Tribune as "a classic," The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt stands as one of the greatest biographies of our time. The publication of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt on September 14th, 2001 marks the 100th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt becoming president.

Review:

?Magnificent...a sweeping narrative of the outward man and a shrewd examination of his character....It is one of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment. There should be a queue awaiting the next volume.? W. A. Swanberg, The New York Times Book Review

Review:

?Theodore Roosevelt, in this meticulously researched and beautifully written biography, has a claim on being the most interesting man ever to be President of this country.? Robert Kirsch, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

?Spectacles glittering, teeth and temper flashing, high-pitched voice rasping and crackling, Roosevelt surges out of these pages with the force of a physical presence.? The Atlantic Monthly

Review:

?Morris?s book is beautifully written as well as thoroughly scholarly-clearly a masterpiece of American biography....Hundreds of thousands will soon be reading this book...and will look forward, as I do, to Morris?s second volume.? Kenneth S. Davis, Worcester Sunday Telegram

Synopsis:

Focuses on Roosevelt's pre-presidential career, covering the period between 1858 to 1901, during which time Roosevelt built himself up from a frail asthmatic youth to a robust man with varied interest.

Anne R from Maryland, August 16, 2012 (view all comments by Anne R from Maryland)
This is one of the most enjoyable and well-written biographies I've ever read. My image of Theodore Roosevelt had been that of a macho, jingoistic imperialist--a crude caricature, it turns out. I didn't know he was a pioneering reformer who cleaned up the corrupt New York City police department, straightened out the federal and New York State civil services, and, as governor, initiated so much pro-labor legislation that party bosses and corporate titans conspired to run him out of the state by making him vice president in 1900. All this did, of course, was to make him president a year later when William McKinley was assassinated. And along the way, he was a cowboy, war hero, and author of many books. Morris tells the story vividly, gracefully, and with a sense of humor. I'm looking forward to the second book in this series.
