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.

"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
"This book is filled with invaluable lessons for twenty-first century leaders. It deserves a place on every executive's bookshelf." -- John C. Maxwell, author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, founder of INJOY
"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

Each chapter in Theodore Roosevelt on Leadership recounts episodes from Roosevelt’s career, and distills this information to generate useful, point-by-point leadership guidelines. “Ceasing to Be Afriaid”, “Always Learning”, and “Action, Action, and Still More Action” are a few of the themes that Strock has chosen. To provide a more standard survey of Roosevelt’s life, Strock has also provided a helpful timeline. But it may be best to wait on this until after you have read all the way through Roosevelt on Leadership: by the end of this book, you will feel that Roosevelt’s greatness has been reaffirmed, but will also understand that greatness in a new light.
The author chose very interesting slices from the life of TR to illustrate his principles of leadership and, unlike other biographies or leadership books I've read, the illustrations truly illustrated the principle being discussed. The writing is vigourous and clear. I ordered the author's Leadership book on Reagan in part due to the skill of the author. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
This book helps you become an effective team builder, communicator and contributor to make a difference to the world. It keeps the flame of your vision alive. I always dream big, and this book helped me dream much bigger and broadened my vision to serve others globally. Most of TR lessons are relevant not only now but also in future. The present generation leaders and 21st century leaders must learn lessons from TR.
The book is readable, and is written in a conversational tone. The book arouses the attention of the readers and sustains the interest from beginning to the end of the book. James Strock holds the attention of the readers from the beginning to the end of the book with his gift of writing, and his ability to present ideas and insights amazingly well. He moves the readers with his magical words. He has been gifted with the power of writing in a simple and straightforward language that glues readers throughout the book. He has the ability to hit the bull’s eye. It is an inspiring book on TR reflecting his leadership ideas and ideals. It is a bible on leadership.
It is one of the rarest books I have read in my life. I strongly recommend reading this book to share TR’s leadership lessons to leaders at all levels including executive education and coaching. Read this book again and again to grow as a great leader. You can also gift this book to your friends and well-wishers to inspire them to grow as great leaders.
