I suggest to skip this book.
I loved the first book on Roosevelt. Couldn't wait to hear (read?) more. Due to my library queue, I got this third one next. I'm very disappointed. The reader/actor is great, so unsure if it's TRs life isn't as interesting, or if it's the writing/story telling that's dull.
I believe book 1 is 8 discs and I think this book is close to 20. That didn't seem to make sense, but soon realized that we get a day by day description of all the birds/animals he and his son killed while on safari, and the day by day travels where he is the toast of Europe, and disc after disc re every meeting and conversation leading up the election of 1912, then...and the author must have been paid by the word...month to month dull activities.
I skipped a bunch (have already read about his time in the Amazon) and then there is minutia regarding the start of and evolvement of World War I. There is so much detail, and nothing to do with TR that I thought that some TR discs were mistakenly swapped out for a book on WWI.
Nope, it came back around to TR. Ahem.
I read that the author was 70 when this was published, and based on how different it seems from the first book, I wonder if he had "help" in finishing it. Or again, he was paid by the word.
I will acknowledge that, to me, a "hungry" TR is much more interesting than a post presidential TR.
If you want a really good book on his Amazon adventure, I highly recomm Candice Millard's book.
