This is a brilliant book, and Roosevelt creates a wonderful autobiography This is required reading for most in the area of American History, begining of the 20th century, and late 19th century This is wonderful primary source material.
This book was ridiculously good Roosevelt was a one of a kind.I wish we had like him His speak softly and carry a big stick rhetoric won him the reputation of a war monger but the fact is that in his 7 1 2 year term as president he took over for McKinley when he was assassinated 6 months into his presidency , America was totally at peace and not one round was fired at an enemy.A couple of other interesting facts about TR He lived in Oyster Bay, Long Island He started life asthmatic and puny He [...]
Whether in national or in private affairs it is ordinarily not advisable to make a bluff which cannot be put through Many of us don t recognize the fourth person on Mount Rush Many , knowing only the caricature he s become, don t know why Teddy Roosevelt is there Reading his autobiography helps bridge that gap Roosevelt was a Progressive We who see the world through the lens of Democrat or Republican will not readily understand what that means In our terms, Roosevelt was a liberal in domestic po [...]
TR s autobiography suffers from two problems First, the author has an exceptionally high opinion of himself and his causes, and never acknowledges the slightest possibility of error in principle even when he acknowledges that his opponents were equally high minded men As often as not, he lacks that acknowledgement, though, which leads to his autobiography being a series of moments where he describes his awesomeness as awesome stuff happens while he does awesome deeds because he is a man and men [...]
After reading H.W Brands s biography on Theodore Roosevelt, I knew that I wasn t done with him I needed And who better to go to than the horse s mouth At first, I simply read some of his speeches and his account of the Rough Riders, but then I found his autobiography and decided to take a big bite.As writers go, Roosevelt is engaging It s comforting to be able to recognize his own style and know that you re not dealing with a ghost writer That brash, sincere, and self aware voice is no doubt th [...]
I was surprised at how well President Roosevelt wrote With few exceptions, he kept my attention, and with good humor Like most autobiographies, the book was partly a defense of his beliefs and actions On periphery and personal character matters I agreed, but I was not convinced by his core political views, especially his ends justify the means defense of government overreach and his overstepping the constitutional limits of his office But personally he appears to have been a courageous, likeable [...]
This is an excellent volume Roosevelt s autobiography is quite interesting, particularly how he describes his time out West as well as with the Rough Riders It s also quite valuable because he gives an estimate of his own actions in office and defends them according to his principles He does go into quite a bit of detail on several situations so it can be a bit dry reading at times Included in this volume is The Strenuous Life a speech T R gave in Chicago Absolutely fantastic and quite timely fo [...]
One of my favorite people, not because he was President, we had many of them but because what he did with the office he held.In this book it explains his feelings on all types of issues and lets us see for ourselves how he was before his time In this book it is also written how he respected nature and it is a great read so enjoy
Muito melhor arriscar coisas grandiosas para ganhar vit rias gloriosas mesmo que estampadas pelo fracasso do que se alinhar com aqueles esp ritos pobres que nem aproveitam muito nem sofrem muito, porque vivem em uma penumbra cinzenta que n o conhece nem a vit ria nem a derrota Theodore Roosevelt
More of a memoir than an autobiography While Roosevelt was a genius and a work horse it seems he couldn t get past the self aggrandizing in his writing The book is quite inspiring and well worth the read.
I m about halfway through this amazing book So far it is an amazing tale I can t wait until I can sit down and finish it.
This should be required reading for college students studying American history or politics.
An amazing book I listened to the audiobook from librivox It was well read But now I do want to go back and read it from a book, take notes, highlight stuff It has too many great quotes to miss out on Loved listening to it The book starts off with Roosevelt s early life experiences and references the American Civil War I had never before read a book that talks about those experiences directly and of horse drawn carriages So it was an eye opener right away It goes through his life experiences and [...]
I wasn t sure I would ever finish this Teddy really needed a editor One hundred word sentences tend to be hard to follow Despite the wordy style the content was quite interesting, although, except for some childhood memories, it was devoid of family remembrances He gave great descriptions of cattle drives in North Dakota, but said nothing about the family tragedies that drove him out there His military and political careers are covered in great detail and, considering today s political mess, you [...]
I have highlighted and saved sections in this book than any previously Theodore Roosevelt held high ideals, and he writes very persuasively about them His ideals about honest, fairness, justice, America s place as a great power, military might, globalism, environmentalism are timely with our modern struggles and problems Just as the industrial revolution and the technological advances of the beginning of the 20th century upended all aspects of society, such disarray can be found in the disrupti [...]
I did not like this book and would only recommend it to someone who either wants to know why President Roosevelt made specific decisions or someone studying early 20th century American politics That said, TR is one of my favorite characters in American history Parts of this book were fascinating his early life, his time on a ranch in Nebraska, his love of nature, and his contributions during the Spanish American War The rest of the book is a long winded memoir where TR justifies his policy decis [...]
Theodore Roosevelt, in my opinion, was one of the best Presidents the United States has ever had In his autobiography, he takes great care to detail key moments of his upbringing, which he believes molded him into a proper man, and suggests the importance of each event as valued knowledge to the American Roosevelt believed it was his duty to treat the common man the same he would any captain of industry Each page of his autobiography seems relevant today and will remain a timeless read as each o [...]
A very interesting life He grows up loving the outdoors, becomes a lawyer, enters politics, fights in wars, is a farmer, is a governer, is president etc The amount of things Teddy gets up to is incredible He sticks to his principles regardless of what others say about him A really tough macho man who loves to read and cares about his family What a guy, no wonder they put his face on a mountain.
This book has changed how I view Teddy R and America Seeing that things swing back and forth, that great people change this nation, suffer setbacks and that the forces of greed and abuse are never absent, but that there are always good and strong people out there that can and do reign them in makes me hopeful about our country An amazing read.
A man for our timesMuch of what took place during Mr Roosevelt s term seems to me similar to the US presidential campaign for 2017 2020 I hope soon to be President Trump reads the book I think he will find it invaluable.
Learned a lot about this president, and liked what I learned read Different time in out nation s history different writing style.
I never knew what an interesting man he was, really glad I read this autobiography
BoringRoosevelt was a great man and one of our greatest Presidents The book was very dry Not one I would recommend Move on to one with a different point of view.
How remarkable that he was able to single handedly solve all of the problems of American government Seriously though, while bombastic at times, he was a fascinating person with great ideas.
Interesting book to learn about Theodore Roosevelt This book covered too much information if anything.
Very informative detailed history into one of my heroes A true gentleman, statesman adventurer To see the life he lived unfolding on paper was amazing.
It s difficult to even wrap my head around a man like Theodore Roosevelt Here s a guy who went to Harvard, majored in Natural History which I imagine is a bit akin to a modern day Conservation Biology degree feel free to correct me , wrote a book on Naval History, roped steers, punched out cowboys, etc etc It s difficult for me to imagine somebody with such a vigorous personality and I certainly haven t met anybody like him in my lifetime It s even difficult to imagine today a member of the Pre [...]
While President I used to box with some of the aides as well as play singlestick with General Wood After a few years I had to abandon boxing as well as wrestling for in one bout a young captain of artillery cross countered me on the eye and the blow smashed the little blood vessels Fortunately it was my left eye but the sight has been dim ever since and if it had been the right eye I should have been entirely unable to shoot This is kind of a strange book because Roosevelt is practically a caric [...]
This is a treasure for the ardent Roosevelt scholar, but for the casually interested reader it got a little long His voice strikes me as a curious mix of Mark Twain and Donald Trump the vocabulary and verve of Twain with the self importance of Trump Though granted when you are Teddy Roosevelt a little self importance is probably well warranted To be honest, I was interested in his discussion of family life and bird watching than in his political life, so that is probably most of my problem as a [...]
I was surprised at how progressive this was considering he was a Republican politician from 100 years ago I was also surprised at how little things have changed in the political machine over the last century and gives me some perspective next time I hear a politician promising change I also thought he had a very balanced and progressive view on the military, workers rights, work life balance and gasp socialism It is an auto biography, and he does talk very favourably of himself and his accomplis [...]
