Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Roosevelt faced serious challenges personally and professionally as president. His wife and his mother died hours apart. Immersing himself in work, TR wrote hundreds of treatises and books, won the Nobel Peace Prize and launched the Panama Canal. Strock (Reagan on Leadership), a former government official, analyzes Roosevelt's leadership engagingly and insightfully, but draws few concrete business lessons from his career.

Review

"Filled with invaluable lessons for twenty-first century leaders."
— John C. Maxwell author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, founder of The Injoy Group
"This meticulously researched and highly readable book is a masterpiece on an up-front leader. Theodore Roosevelt on Leadership could be the primer that turns around a nation choking on guidance from 'leaders' who preach 'do as I say, not as I do.'"
— Col. David H. Hackworth (U.S. Army, ret.), author of the bestseller About Face
"It is about time someone wrote a book like this! This concise and valuable guide to Theodore Roosevelt's philosophy of action is interesting as history and useful for business people and other leaders."
— Tweed Roosevelt, great-grandson of Theodore Roosevelt and president of The Roosevelt Investment Group
"This book is a vivid work of history, an altogether absorbing practical guide—and the best introduction to Theodore Roosevelt I've ever encountered."
— Peter Robinson, host of the PBS television program Uncommon Knowledge
"James Strock has written a historically engaging narrative brimming with the affirmative wisdom of Theodore Roosevelt. If you want to succeed in business or education without compromising your moral compass, this marvelous book is an absolute must."
— Douglas Brinkley, professor of history and director of the Eisenhower Center, University of New Orleans
"James Strock captures the qualities and techniques of leadership as expressed and practiced by one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century. This book is a must for everyone with a desire to excel as a leader."
— George M. Scalise, president, Semiconductor Industry Association

From the Inside Flap

Harness the Power of TR's Charisma
Theodore Roosevelt was a leader of uncommon strength who, through the sheer force of his extraordinary will, turned America into a modern world power. Thrown headfirst into the presidency by the assassination of his predecessor, he led with courage, character, and vision in the face of overwhelming challenges, whether busting corporate trusts or building the Panama Canal. Roosevelt has been a hero to millions of Americans for over a century and is a splendid model to help you master today's turbulent marketplace and be a hero and a leader in your own organization.

"The great thing about U.S. presidents is that as chief executives of the most complex organization on earth, their wisdom is invaluable to business leaders. This book renders its subject as an aggressive, risk-taking master of PowerPoint-friendly advice." 
-- Forbes.com

"Vigorous is the best word to describe Teddy Roosevelt and Strock does a fine job of communicating the energy with which our 26th president approached every aspect of his life." --Business Review Reader

"Strock's book may well become a kind of Bible to many people, a manual for inspiration that people will keep in the office desk, on the bedside table, or in the briefcase for easy and quick renewal." --Theodore Roosevelt Association Journal
