Whew! A 910 page hardcover book with 160 of those pages for notes, thank you’s, and the index. I learned quite a bit about ole’ Teddy Roosevelt and his, on again, off again, buddy William Taft that I did not know. I love Team of Rivals so much that I thought this was going to ‘rival’ it. Not so much. She spent too much time on details that were related to Teddy and the times that helped understand what was going on, but I found myself skimming…lots of page about McClures Magazine and others.
If you are a history buff, you’ll like this. Lots of details, lots of people, politics, and more. Me, personally, I’m ready to move on to something I can get into. Sorry Doris.
