A fascinating biography of one of our most interesting presidents. Mr. Morris thoroughly researched his life and has written an excellent book.

This book got me hooked on Presidential biographies. A thoughtful and insightful look into a man who overcame many physical obstacles and beat the Republican establishment to become the President who shepherded the country into the modern age of superpowers. This book does overlook some of TR's shortcomings, but combined with Theodore Rex, provides an amazingly complete portrait of the man and his time.

"Review" by , "A shining portrait of a presciently modern political genius maneuvering in a gilded age of wealth, optimism, excess and American global ascension."
"Review" by , "Morris excels at placing TR in the context of his time, showing how he outmaneuvered powerful but ossified opponents from the Gilded Age and trumped isolationists by averting war, in the process winning the first Nobel Peace Prize."
"Review" by , "[Morris] writes with a breezy verve that makes the pages fly, and that perfectly suits his subject....A combination of diffidence and enthusiasm allows him to write of our past — which looks like our future — with energy and clarity."
"Review" by , "In Edmund Morris, a great president has found a great biographer....Every bit as much a masterpiece of biographical writing as The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, which won the Pulitzer Prize."
"Review" by , "Take a deep breath and dive into Theodore Rex, Edmund Morris's sequel to his 1979 masterpiece, The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt....He writes with a breezy verve that makes the pages fly."
"Review" by , "As a literary work on Theodore Roosevelt, it is unlikely ever to be surpassed. It is one of the great histories of the American presidency, worthy of being on a shelf alongside Henry Adams's volumes on Jefferson and Madison."
"Review" by , "Roosevelt is a biographer's dream, an epic character not out of place in an adventure novel."
"Synopsis" by , US
"Synopsis" by , Theodore Rex is the story—never fully told before—of Theodore Roosevelts two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundred years before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, “TR” succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fifty years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents.
