Incredibly joyful book to read. Tons of great photographs and political cartoons. Plenty of history surrounding the time of Roosevelt's life and the major circumstances that formed his mindset and presidency. This is perfect for teens as well as adults interested to refresh themselves on one of our more fascinating presidents.

Easy to read. Also kudos to the author for remaining objective. Only one or two lines I can think of where it becomes preachy and a bit self-righteous.
