Publisher's Summary

Before Teddy Roosevelt earned his reputation as a strong, masculine hunter, explorer, and Rough Rider, he actually endured a sickly childhood. That's just one aspect of his life covered in this biography, which follows his transformation into a disciplined athlete and one of the world's best-known public servants and politicians. Renowned author John Garraty uses quotes from Roosevelt throughout, giving readers direct contact with the man's colorful personality. In addition, Garraty masterfully eliminates confusing details, while emphasizing the significance of Roosevelt's actions as he deals with opposing faction. He emerges as the first modern President and a great statesman.

very quick and interesting story.

Describes Roosevelt in a well rounded way and narration was excellent. It didn't take long to get through and felt I still got a detailed description of who Roosevelt was.

A brief overview of a fascinating life

This was a great short listen but I realy wish there would've been more detail into Roosevelt's life. The narrator was easy to listen to and follow.
