What the community says about The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt
- "This book is about one of the best known US presidents, and very much what I am looking for. I haven't personally heard of this author, but the quality of the book appears to be very high. The user reviews are also extremely positive, and there are a large number of reviews, which tells me this is a popular pick for this genre."
- "This first volume of Morris’s Theodore Roosevelt biography was magisterial, and bodes well for the subsequent books in the series, in my opinion. You come away from the experience feeling as 5ough you were watching a film of the young man and polymath who would become president, and it is a thrill to faithfully relive history from this perspective. Did you know he was a prolific author? You will soon, and much more that is not commonly known about Theodore. I have already ordered the next book!"
- "Sometimes you think you've read every biography and know every detail about someone's life. Then you stumble upon a book that gives you new insight into their history. This is that book! The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt is thoroughly researched, including many new details and information about him that I hadn't known before! Edmund Morris really delves into the man himself, as well as the history we've read about in books, and provides many interesting facts in such a way that he creates a beautiful (true) story."
