I amazed myself by actually getting through this tome. And I enjoyed most of it and learned ALOT more than I can remember ever learning in school about the times and TR. If anyone could accurately be described as being larger than life, TR fits the description. The timing and circumstances of his presidency shaped the USA in world events, from the Panama Canal to Japan's accession as a world power. He believed in an coined the the phrase "fair deal"....for the rights of business, labor unions, and African Americans. He was the country's first and most influential conservationist, and a published author on the subject. The book, for the most part, reads like a novel. It does bog down occasionally in it's language, but it was written as a scholarly record of his presidency, so I could live with that and still enjoy the read.
