    The most eagerly awaited presidential biography in years, Theodore Rex tells the story of President Theodore Roosevelt in real time, reflecting the world as "TR" saw it. Full of cinematic detail, Theodore Rex moves with the exhilarating pace of a novel, yet it rides on a granite base of scholarship.

    Darwin8u says: "BULLY for Teddy the Übermensch!"
    "a good story line and approach"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Theodore Rex to be better than the print version?

    I feel that an audio edition of this book suits me better as I tend to leave a book more often. It is easier for me to listen while I am doing other activities at the same time. It is hard for me to find the time to just read. This is one that is easy to listen to as it is written in a style that is conversational.


    What other book might you compare Theodore Rex to and why?

    The Education of Henry Adams it was conversational also


    What about Jonathan Marosz’s performance did you like?

    He was very likable in his manner


    If you could give Theodore Rex a new subtitle, what would it be?

    His 1st year as an unexpected President. How he flexed his political muscle to accomplish his objectives

    Written in his early 60s, Tesla looks back on the events that shaped his life as the inventor of our modern world. Like many exceptional artists, scientists, and engineers, Tesla's senses and intellect worked on a higher level, which often afflicted him physically. Yet, he overcame, and used his special abilities and strong educational background to make electricity the servant of man.

    Would you try another book from Nikola Tesla and/or David Mitchell?

    yes, as I am interested in the subject the narration was good


    What was most disappointing about Nikola Tesla’s story?

    I was looking for more nuts and bolts. Having heard the Wizard the life and times of Nicola Tesla, which was packed with information, I found this book to be lacking


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Some of his childhood stories


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was nice to hear his stories in his own words
