This is about as good a treatment of Roosevelt's ridiculously epic pre-presidential life as you are bound to find. Morris balances his painstaking research with prose that feels almost too stylish for a biography, yet he manages to make it work in the end. T.R. himself almost explodes out of these pages, which seems in keeping with his character as Morris renders it. One day I'll get around to reading Theodore Rex.
