Aida D. A former Fulbright Fellow at Oxford University, Donald holds a P. in American history and has taught at Columbia University. I always enjoy a read about TR and the original works OF TR, since he's a genuine hero. Lion in the White House is a good, solid, basic biography which adds very little to the scholarship of the extensive biographies of the past decade.

For one thing, Theodore Roosevelt’s life is filled with action and adventure. He was certainly much more than just the United States’ 26th president. He was a colonel and lat Overall, Lion in the White House: A Life of Theodore Roosevelt, by Aida D. Donald, is a very informative, enjoyable read. Published on October 23, 2007, this book focuses on the life and accomplishments of Theodore Roosevelt. The ability to be creative with the plot would have contributed to Lion In The White House: A Life Of Theodore Roosevelt. Another negative factor of this novel is the often usage of unfamiliar vocabulary.

Some of Theodore Roosevelt’s most effective achievements were in conservation. He added enormously to the national forests in the West, reserved lands for public use, and fostered great irrigation projects. The life of strenuous endeavor was a must for those around him, as he romped with his five younger children and led ambassadors on hikes through Rock Creek Park in Washington, . Leaving the Presidency in 1909, Roosevelt went on an African safari, then jumped back into politics.

How we measure 'reads'. Zenith: In the White House with George H. W. Bush is the third in Ambassador Untermeyer's series of books based on his personal journals compiled during his tenure in the service of George H. Bush, first as vice president, then as president.

New York state assemblyman, assistant secretary of the Navy, New York City police commissioner, governor of New York, vice president and, at forty-two, the youngest president ever--in his own words, Theodore Roosevelt "rose like a rocket." He was also a cowboy, a soldier, a historian, an intrepid explorer, and an unsurpassed environmentalist, all in all, perhaps the most accomplished chief executive in our nation's history. Roosevelt built the Panama Canal and engaged the country in world affairs, putting a temporary end to American isolationism. And he won the Nobel Peace Prize--the only sitting president so honored. In Lion in the White House, historian Aida Donald masterfully chronicles the life of this first modern president.

I give this book only three stars because of Donald's inability to be an objective biographer.

I was excited to read a short biography on one of our greatest Presidents. However, I was only two chapters in when I realized that liberal author Aida Donald is an extremely biased biographer. Now, I would expect some interpretation of events to be a bit off, but Donald puts her political beliefs right there in the text for everyone to read, even when they aren't directly related to comments about Roosevelt. For example, she states that the Republican party "never again" really cared about people the way Teddy did, thus playing on the stereotype that Republicans are a bunch of rich, heartless cronies. Later on she says that only a "central government" can truly "care for the poor". She also keeps referring to Roosevelt's upbringing as that of living in a "cocoon" simply because he was home schooled. Nevermind the fact that he lived in Europe for a year before the age of 16, and also traveled to the Middle East before entering college. In my opinion, that is no cocoon, but rather a global upbringing that would do many of today's youth some good.

Overall though, it's a good short read if you're not interested in reading a 700 page biography, which does exist, but I wasn't interested in reading.

I always enjoy a read about TR and the original works OF TR, since he's a genuine hero. Lion in the White House is a good, solid, basic biography which adds very little to the scholarship of the extensive biographies of the past decade. The unique thing I really got from it is a reasonable interpretation of TR's intervention in the 1902 Anthracite Strike, reasonable being defined as I agree with it and it's a noble conclusion. (I have a strong Progressive bent. I'm allowed to. It's America - the America that TR believed in and worked for.) Edmund Morris's The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt, Theodore Rex, and the (hopefully) to-be-written volume about the post-presidential years remain the gold standard of TR bio's, and H.W. Brands' TR: The Last Romantic runs a close second. Lion in the White House is a great place to start study of TR. The Library of America has published a volume called Theodore Roosevelt: Letters and Speeches, which gives thinking people some original source matter to read for themselves. One recommended and fun (if quirky) TR tome is My Last Chance to be a Boy, by Joseph Ornig, which is a detailed account of the 1913 - 14 Brazilian expedition.
The Democrats and Republicans of 1900 wouldn't recognize the parties of today. TR's policies and passions were not shaped around tired but limited modern menus of the stereotypical "right" and "left." For example, he was for open immigration, which would displease many today. He also strongly believed that immigrants needed to speak English and become Americans, rather than something hyphenated, which would displease the rest of modern politicos. Get a grip, we're not going to bring America forward by wrapping ourselves in emptiness, we need to actually READ TR's advice and get off our collective butts, THINK, REASON and ACT:
"It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly, who errs, and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Was forced to read this book for an upper-level history class. (That should give you an idea of the state of higher education in the United States.) The positive reviews from both critics and some readers astound me. This book is badly written and offers zero insight.
Lonesome Orange Kid
The life of one of the world's most daring souls, who accomplished more in his time than many men might have in three lifetimes.
Beautifully written, Teddy's achievements are detailed here- one great man whose actions and foresight laid the foundation for a greater America than the world might have known otherwise.

Excellent read!
doesnt Do You
A simple, positive review of the life of a notable American leader. It does not pretend to be an original scholarly or detailed work. Probably best for the person desiring only to become reacquainted with the always-exciting Theodore Roosevelt from a book that can be read in one transcontinental airline flight.

The author is a liberal who does not hide her disdain for the modern Republican Party. She also excessively highlights the influences of Lincoln on TR. (I wish the gentle influence of Lincoln, who was kind to animals, had been felt by TR when he went to Africa on safari and where he thought it useful to kill thousands of game animals.)
