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.

Should be required reading for all US presidential candidates and all elected officials. Roosevelt's presidency is a compelling and undeniable prescription for how to lead effectively from the intrinsically trustworthy center of the political spectrum.
Founder John Adams said, "Public business must always be done by somebody or other. if wise men decline it others will not. If honest men refuse it others will not. Riches will not console a man under the reflection he has acted a mean mercenary part in life." Theodore Roosevelt was a wise and honest man who rose to that challenge perhaps more than any US President other than Washington or Lincoln.
