Volume 1 covers his life before he became president. Volume 2 covers all his terms as president, the time between, and his life from presidency to death. The story is engaging, well-written, and seems to be very thorough. The narratives by Richard Dreyfuss are distracting, though, because his voice is so recognizable. Anyone not familiar with Dreyfuss won't suffer from that distraction. I was surprised to learn the background of the Panama Canal that had not been covered by other documentaries, as well as by the relationships to the tycoons of the era, the changes in law, politics, & society all due directly to Teddy's unique style of administration. It was also interesting to learn how he singlehandedly cleaned up corruption in the NYPD.
