Reviews - What do customers think about The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt (Modern Library Paperbacks)?

A Classic Biography and a Work of Art   May 25, 2008
What a tremendous biography, or actually one third of a biography, as this is the first of a projected three volumne work. It is hard to imagine someone having a career like this today, although to be fair to our own times, Teddy Roosevelt was a dynamo by the standards of his own era as well.

The books only covers Roosevelt's life up until he becomes president, but because of Roosevelt's statue, drive and intellect, and Morris' thorough research, expert analysis and superb writing, it is also a very exciting view into America in the second half of the 19th century. A total of 700 pages and at the end I could not wait to start the next volume, Theodore Rex (Modern Library Paperbacks)
Fascinating  Apr 6, 2008
I knew little of TR's life prior to reading this book, but having read it, I feel like I have a very good understanding of the man. In this thoroughly researched book, you are treated to every struggle TR had, starting with his battle with asthma and continuing through his political battles. The man loved a challenge and if he didn't have one, he created one. Love him or hate him, he was a fascinating man, and this biography does justice to his life. Once I started the book, I couldn't put it down.
TR  Mar 16, 2008
Excellent and highly entertaining book. Arguably the greatest President in US history. Reading this makes you realize some people are truly born to do great things and make a true and profound difference in this world....Theodore Roosevelt without a doubt is one of these people. If there was any way we can make TR reappear today and take over the country I'd do it in a heartbeat. We need someone like him today...unfortunately we don't and it's painfully obvious there's no one like him on the horizon either. I know this book pertains to his life before he takes office, but the seeds of those years are sewn here..A++++
The Greatest of the all  Dec 30, 2007
While the debate over the who the best president was, you could put Theodore Roosevelt on the top of the list. Genuine, Respected, Hard Working and an inteltual. One of the smartest to hold the office next to Thomas Jefferson.

His talent far out way what he did in office and he only wanted the best for the country. After the book was writen, he earned the Medal of Honor and has been give many tributes such as his likeness at Mount Rushmore along the other great presidents.

This book shows Roosevelts life in it's entirety and with great passion. One of the best biographies I have experienced in many years.
A well done biography on TR's life leading up to his ascendency to the Presidency  Oct 30, 2007
I enjoyed going through the condensed version of Edmund Morris' book on the rise of Theodore Roosevelt. Please notice that the book abruptly ends when President McKinley dies after being shot, leading to TR becoming President. At times I wondered what I was missing by experiencing a shortened version, but, nevertheless, I enjoyed the 8 CD set and got a much better idea of who TR was. I'm currently going through the second part in the trilogy, which focuses on TR's presidency. The third in the trilogy will be about TR's life after the presidency and has yet to be written. My guess is that TR ascendancy is the most exciting part of his life to read about.

I most liked learning about TR's rise through New York City and New York State politics, his championing of fair play and the individual, and his valiant attempts to deal with long-standing corruption in New York City (Tammany Hall). Having said that, I do wish the book delved more into TR's relevance today and his more long-lasting affects. I also liked learning about his personal life, his two marriages and his upbringing, and his truly admirable publishing accomplishments, writing several most highly respected books on history and science.

Of interest, David McCollough wrote "Mornings on Horseback" which covers the same period of TR's life as "The Rise of TR". I wonder how the two books compare? I know both books are top rate, and I am seriously considering either reading or doing the CD version of that one, too!
