What People are Saying About This

Douglas Brinkley

“Daniel Ruddy’s Theodore Roosevelt’s History of the United States is a marvelous omnibus showcasing our twenty-sixth president’s flashy wit, statesman-like grace, and original thinking. A real gift to the world.”

Thomas Fleming

This is a book that everyone even faintly interested in American history will read with amazement and delight. It is nothing less than an historical experience, a journey into our past in the company of a unique and often startling time-traveller.

Edmund Morris

I have nothing but admiration for a young historian’s ingenuity in putting together what is, in a sense, a Rooseveltian apologia pro vita sua, with not one word of other argument interpolated...A splendid piece of work.

I purchased this book for my husband. He has enjoyed reading it; and has found it very interesting and informative. If offers insights into his brilliance and sometimes caustic opinions, some of which were not known to him prior to receiving this gift. I believe it would make a great gift for anyone with an interest in one of the most "larger-than-life", vibrant President to ever hold office.
