Review quote

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" "From the Hardcover edition."
