it was ok

I did not like this book and would only recommend it to someone who either wants to know why President Roosevelt made specific decisions or someone studying early 20th century American politics.

That said, TR is one of my favorite characters in American history. Parts of this book were fascinating: his early life, his time on a ranch in Nebraska, his love of nature, and his contributions during the Spanish American War. The rest of the book is a long winded memoir where TR justifies his policy decisions to future readers.
