This was a comprehensive and well-researched account of Teddy Roosevelt's early years before he became president. His family is discussed in detail, and the author provides rich insight into events that impacted what kind of a person Roosevelt eventually became, from his bouts of childhood asthma to the tragic early death of his first wife Alice. I especially enjoyed the account of Roosevelt's year out West--it is amazing that that rather short period of his life became such a defining part of his subsequent actions and image.

It's books like this that make us reconsider how we perceive our former presidents. After reading this, I don't think I like Teddy Roosevelt so much. As with John Adams, McCullough gives us a glimpse of the man, not the myth.

Remarkable story about a remarkable man and his remarkable family. This volume covers Theodore Roosevelt and his family BEFORE he became president. Highly readable, entertaining and informative.
