Theodore Rex
Theodore Rex | Edmund Morris
Theodore Rex is the storynever fully told beforeof Theodore Roosevelts two world-changing terms as President of the United States. A hundred years before the catastrophe of September 11, 2001, TR succeeded to power in the aftermath of an act of terrorism. Youngest of all our chief executives, he rallied a stricken nation with his superhuman energy, charm, and political skills. He proceeded to combat the problems of race and labor relations and trust control while making the Panama Canal possible and winning the Nobel Peace Prize. But his most historic achievement remains his creation of a national conservation policy, and his monument millions of acres of protected parks and forest. Theodore Rex ends with TR leaving office, still only fifty years old, his future reputation secure as one of our greatest presidents. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Morris provides context to the adage that's most commonly associated with Roosevelt, speak softly and carry a big stick.

"If a man continually blusters, if he lacks civility, a big stick will not save him from his trouble; but neither will speaking softly avail, if back of the softness there does not lie strength, power."

How did surgeons prepare the president for surgery? Give him whiskey to drink and rub cocaine around the wound. 😳

Moving, powerful, deeply informative - this is not only one of the strongest biographies I have ever read but a very galvanizing one. Roosevelt strides like a colossus over every page, from first to last. Heady, fascinating stuff.

I actually own this hardcover, but I don't think I'll ever actually read it - so I'm going to try the audio instead. I tend to gravitate towards nonfiction audio, for the most part.

Zelma Me too. I only listen to nonfiction - books and podcasts. Fiction just doesn't work for me on audio. 5y
caitlin.reads.books I'm the same way - nonfiction is better on audio than fiction for me. 5y
Kristy_K I recently started listening to audiobooks and have found I'm the same way. 5y

Regardless of your political leanings, this is a great look at history through an objective lense. Morris starts this book at the beginning of Roosevelt's first term and ends it at his leaving office. A must read for history buffs. Note: this reads like a novel and not a history book.
