5.0 out of 5 stars This is a book worth reading September 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is one of the very finest of autobiographies. Theodore Roosevelt writes with style and elan. He thinks profoundly, and he presents his own moral views with great vigor. Some of passages reflecting his experiences as a rancher in North Dakota - whose range extended into Montana - would have been exciting to read even if included in collections of the most popular western fiction ever written. Had such authors written them, the adventures he recalls in these passages would have enhanced the reputations of famed writers such as Zane Grey or Bret Harte, Louis L'Amour or even the great modern masters of historical Western lore such as Noel M. Loomis or Larry McMurtry. The days he recalls are those during which the West was as wild as it ever became.
His political experiences especially as a reformer intent on overcoming corruption wherever he found it also are detailed in these pages. They truly are historically important.
His experiences as Police Commissioner are revealing and because of them it is easy to understand why his picture hangs on the wall of the office of Police Commissioner (portrayed by Tom Selleck) in the currently popular TV series BLUE BLOODS.
The Theodore Roosevelt advocacy for women's suffrage and for thoroughly equal rights for women is wonderfully presented in his inclusion of his exchange of letters with a 45 year old woman who had given birth to nine children and reared them all only to find that her conscientious devotion to her family had put her at a disadvantage. It had limited her exposure to many exciting influences and made her believe she had become "boring" to her husband and even her own children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teddy Rides Again ! December 7, 2012
By nilo52
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book should be required reading for any student of American history. In it we learn how Theodore Roosevelt became one of America's greatest presidents. In his own words we can go back in time and see our country as he saw
It. It was a time in America when great wrongs were righted and great deeds we're done.
I THOROUGHLY loved this book !

3.0 out of 5 stars Good February 15, 2013

Written in his own words, this autobiography displays a personal side of Teddy Roosevelt. This does not replace a fully researched historical biography, but was easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars We could use a TR in the WH today October 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can't imagine any other president who has led a more interesting life than TR. Integrity and moral character were embedded in him from childhood and those virtues guided him throughout his life. He took no shortcuts, accepted no excuses for laziness, demanded physical fitness for himself and others, and inspired confidence in those around him whether they be frontiersmen, legislators, police and military personnel or "ordinary" citizens. It's been a long time since we have had a president who displayed such character and depth of experience....probably not since Bush I, or Ike before him. A very entertaining and inspiring read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it, or maybe i did. i cant remember January 21, 2013
By Pete M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
He is one of my favorite presidents that i have read the least about. i don't mean to sound crazy, but i am a ferocious reader and this book wore me down. it started good and glossed over every part i wanted his personal view on. it was written during the falling out with taft/pissed at everybody phase of his life and the second half of the book turns into a babbling run on ranting sentence like this one. in short, some people are not meant to write about themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Long and tedious June 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
President Roosevelt is very repetitive and obviously considers that he is absolutely correct in everything he ever did while President. However he was obviously an absolutely brilliant man and truly cared about the well being of the American people. I learnt a lot from reading the book and would like to read another less biased book on his political career

Really interesting read. He was a brilliant man. Wish we had more people like him holding political offices today. He must have been a real man's man. Strong moral convictions, good family values, a true leader.
