    "Theodore Rex is one of my favorite books about Theodore Roosevelt written more recently. The book really brings "Teddy" to life. I hope this author decides to write more books with other historical figures. This one is really good."

    "I love historical novels and this is the subject of one of my favorite presidents Theodore 'Teddy' Roosevelt. I love how it details his childhood and how the suffering of asthma attacks as a child seemed to develop him into a great president. I also loved how the book details his relationships with his siblings and parents which could be why he developed into such a compassionate personality. Good biography and book."

    "When looking for a book on a subject which a lot of authors have written on already, checking if a book has won awards can help narrow the field. This book, Colonel Roosevelt, sounds like it covers his earlier years before the presidency, and may not be fully encompassing. However, it's long page count and various awards make me lean towards this being a good choice."
