  • The Bully Pulpit: Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the Golden Age of Journalism

    Story
    (916)

    Goodwin describes the broken friendship between Teddy Roosevelt and his chosen successor, William Howard Taft. With the help of the "muckraking" press, Roosevelt had wielded the Bully Pulpit to challenge and triumph over abusive monopolies, political bosses, and corrupting money brokers. Roosevelt led a revolution that he bequeathed to Taft only to see it compromised as Taft surrendered to money men and big business. The rupture led Roosevelt to run against Taft for president, an ultimately futile race that gave power away to the Democrats.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    What a great Book! The history of TR and Taft as well as the publishing industry of the day. Very informative and well performed. My only wish was that the book be shorter. Although very interesting their was much to much detail. These famous people who where much more liberal then any current day Republican could have been fleshed out with fewer words


    What did you like best about this story?

    What a way to learn about some of our most important political statesmen. a great listen. From Teddy Roosevelt to Woodrow Wilson all the in fighting and back room dealings a great insight.


    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Hermann's reading was fantastic! Of course he had great material to help him along the way with this very long book.


    Any additional comments?

    About two hours shorter would have been great!

    Always enjoy listening to George Guidall. He is one of the best narrators.
    The book was a little weak, but still can't wait for the next one.
