It is also the story of the muckraking press, which aroused the spirit of reform that carried President Roosevelt to success while eventually destroying President Taft, who never understood how to deal with it.

It’s been almost a decade since Doris Kearns Goodwin wrote the incredibly influential A Team of Rivals. Now she’s given us The Bully Pulpit, the story of Teddy Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and the chaotic, dynamic America they led one hundred years ago. Her timing could not have been better. A polarized country, pit-bull reporters, greedy Wall-streeters, and corrupt politicians. Change the names and dates and this would be a book about modern politics – every page is relevant to our challenges, issues, and frustrations today. And more than that, The Bully Pulpit is packed with larger than life personalities; from reporters, publishers, and tycoons to Roosevelt himself. In Goodwin’s hands these characters explode off the page and turn a political profile into a riveting, entertaining story, as much a thrilling read as a definitive work of history. It should absolutely be a cornerstone for your history shelf.
