From the Introduction- "Much of Roosevelt's exuberant lifestyle can be traced to his fight to overcome asthma as a child. He hardened his body through physical exertion and by learning to ride, box and shoot. But he never justified sport for its own sake; rather vigor of body was valued chiefly as a stimulant to the development of intellect and, above all, the formation of character."
