Reviews

Praise for The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt

"Magnificent . . . one of those rare works that is both definitive for the period it covers and fascinating to read for sheer entertainment."--The New York Times Book Review "A towering biography . . . a brilliant chronicle."--Time "Theodore Roosevelt, in this meticulously researched and beautifully written biography, has a claim on being the most interesting man ever to be President of this country."--Los Angeles Times Book Review "Spectacles glittering, teeth and temper flashing, high-pitched voice rasping and crackling, Roosevelt surges out of these pages with the force of a physical presence."--The Atlantic Monthly "[Morris's] prose is elegant and at the same time hard and lucid, and his sense of narrative flow is nearly flawless. . . . The author re-creates a sense of the scene and an immediacy of the situation that any skilled writer should envy and the most jaded reader should find a joy."--The Miami Herald "A monumental work in every sense of the word . . . a book of pulsating and well-written narrative."--The Christian Science Monitor
