really liked it

This is the second book in a trilogy biography of Teddy Roosevelt. The first in the series, "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt", was more enjoyable for me than "Theodore Rex", but I still enjoyed this one. Although this is the fourth book I've read about Teddy Roosevelt, it is the first one I've read that covers his time as president. Ironically, I found this part of his life less interesting than his pre- or post-presidency period. Still, I would definitely say that Roosevelt is the most interesting person I've ever read about...so even his dullest moments are pretty fascinating. I was very excited to discover that the third book in this trilogy will come out this November (called "Colonel Roosevelt"), 9 years after the publication of "Theodore Rex" and 31 years after the publication of "The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt" - yes folks, this trilogy has been in the works for 3-4 decades. I would recommend that everyone read at least one book about Teddy, and this book is certainly worth your time.
