A focus on Roosevelt’s more interesting exploits. Well over an hour of this 19 hour tome is dedicated to every nuance of asthma. We get a detailed account of what asthma suffers experience along with a collection of historical & contemporary opinions on its causes. I get it was an important aspect of his character development but please... The book also suffered from horrible narration. Highly recommend you double the speed as it will make the narration cadence appear normal. If nothing else it cuts the pain in half. When they get to asthma turn it up to 3x.
No I really enjoy historical biographies.
Not if I can help it. Unfortunately he seems to narrate many of the books I gravitate to.
It was good to get an inside look at one of America's legendary families. Just wished the author spent more time on the entree and less time on the appetizer
I was deeply disapointed in this book. I have enjoyed many of McCulloughs other works; John Adams, 1776 but can't recommend this one. He has managed to make one of our more influential and dynamic presidents a complete bore. Need to think long and hard about that Runger narrated 54 hour Truman book on my wish list...
