Theodore Rex is the story—never fully told before—of Theodore Roosevelt's 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.

This was mostly a political history and I prefer social history, so this one felt a little dry. The parts of Roosevelt's presidency that are interesting to me, like the founding of the conservation movement and T.R.'s increasing progressivism, got short shrift in favor of Congressional scandals and political maneuvering. I look forward to learning about Roosevelt's post-presidential life in the next book.
