Publisher's Summary

Theodore Roosevelt was the president who changed America and molded it into the country that we know and love today. He was the man who took the Presidency to new heights and introduced new powers that were designed to tackle many of the pressing issues of the day.

Roosevelt governed at a time where corruption was rife. This book looks at a number of his policies and examines his early life, when so many of his ideas as to how the world should operate were developed. In addition, it looks at the story behind the man himself, from his argumentative ways, to his willingness to tackle lost causes that he believed in.

The story of Theodore Roosevelt is one that teaches us more about the role of the president than any other individual that came before him. His policies brought new rights to workers and protections to the environment. His actions took down large businesses and stopped their attempts to create a monopoly. His decisions changed the course of history, brought the United States into the new century, and built a future upon which it still stands today.

An ok summary of TR's many good points.

No mention of Brownville. For this reason alone it is clearly not balanced but it is a useful potted history.

How can you make Teddy boring!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Better writing and narrating!

Has Theodore Roosevelt put you off other books in this genre?

no, not at all! I love Teddy, and Theodore Rex is a great book!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

His tone of voice, which with the writing (including "we will come back to this later" phrases) really took away from the great story of Teddy Roosevelt, I don't know if the write was trying to summarize so much information or if he was being more thematic in his approach, but it really wasn't a good approach, The end of each chapter ended with the phrase "we can take away this from."
