by. Michael L. Cooper (Author). Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer - no Kindle device required. Cooper draws on many sources to weave a story of the sickly child who grew into a robust, energetic man with seemingly boundless energy. He covers various facets of TR's life: naturalist, cowboy, soldier, author, loving husband, doting father, civil servant, and unexpected (but very successful) president. While striking an admiring tone, the author stops short of painting only a glowing picture of Roosevelt.

THEODORE ROOSEVELT by Michael L. Cooper. JOHN SHRANK HAD been stalking Theodore Roosevelt for three weeks. Roosevelt was running for an unprecedented third term as president of the United States. BABE RUTH by Wilborn Hampton. JOHN STEINBECK by Milton Meltzer. OPRAH WINFREY by Ilene Cooper. On October 14, 1912, standing less than ten yards from the candidate outside the Hotel Gilpatrick in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Shrank shot Roosevelt with . 8 pistol. The bullet pierced his overcoat, steel spectacles case, and a thick copy of a speech folded in his breast pocket before lodging between his ribs. The impact knocked Roosevelt back, but he didn’t fall.

In a superb biography both personal and opinionated, Cooper calls Theodore Roosevelt "the hero America needed. At the beginning of the 20th century, the United States was becoming a nation of big cities and huge corporations, and the major issue Roosevelt faced will sound familiar to readers today-the role of a strong federal government in dealing with the "unrestricted and ill-regulated individualism" of banks and corporations and ensuring a vital economy and social justice at the same time.

  • An astoundingly bad book. To begin with, there are major omissions, such as TR's trip to Brazil in 1914 where he caught malaria, affecting his health for the rest of his life. There are grammatical errors such as the statement that Roosevelt spent a lot of time "pouring" over the New York Times. And then there is this: "After McKinley's inauguration on March 4, 1901, exactly one hundred years after George Washington had been sworn in as the first president of the new republic...". Even elemtary school students are supposed to know that George Washington died in 1799. How can anyone who authors a book on an American historical figure even THINK this, yet alone commit it to a book? How can any editor or publisher allow it to appear in print? It has to be one of the most blockheaded sentences ever to appear between two covers.

    If you want to learn about Roosevelt you are better off reading about him on Wikipedia. Spend your money on something else. I rated it at one star since a score of zero is not allowed.

  • Excellent condition. Interesting book. Used for kid's school reading points. Thank you.
