Yet, according to Brands, an examination of Roosevelt's private life reveals a man whose public strengths hid enormous personal deficiencies. His highly exaggerated, uncompromising ways drove associates and friends crazy. His historical writings (which Brands quotes extensively) are nothing if not a boy's endless macho fantasies. Even more revealing was Roosevelt as son, brother, father, and husband.
Beautifully written and meticulously researched, here is a presidential biography certain to take its place among the classics of the genre.
