This biography by Edmund Morris, the Pulitzer Prize– and National Book Award–winning author of The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and Theodore Rex, marks the completion of a trilogy sure to stand as definitive. Of all our great presidents, Theodore Roosevelt is the only one whose greatness increased out of office. What other president has written forty books, hunted lions, founded a third political party, survived an assassin’s bullet, and explored an unknown river longer than the Rhine? Packed with more adventure, variety, drama, humor, and tragedy than a big novel, yet documented down to the smallest fact, this masterwork recounts the last decade of perhaps the most amazing life in American history.

A Perfect End
The long awaited third book in Morris's trilogy does not disappoint. He has worked on the story of one of our most interesting and diverse presidents for over 30 years. The evidence of his ardent research is made apparent in this book.
To read and immerse yourself in this 3 volume biography of Theodore Roosevelt is the fastest way to learn that the lessons learned in the early 20th century are lessons that apply perfectly still to the early 21at century.
Great subject matter-unnecessarily cluttered
I have always been fascinated by the life of Theodore Roosevelt and have read several books and articles about him, among those are the two previous books by this author.
I have to say that if he had intended that this book only be read by professional historians and others within the academic community, he should have said so at the outset.
Mr. Morris should be commended for the depth of research obviously done to produce this book, however it is unnecessarily peppered with words and foreign language terminology that I have never heard in my six decades of life nor am likely to ever hear again, with no hint in the surrounding text as to their meaning.
Mr. Morris should realize that not all admirers of historical figures, as important to our national identity as this one, are Intellectuals but we still deserve to learn about them
As I stated earlier, I've read the earlier two volumes, however, this one I'm quitting on page 71.
