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.

"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
"suggests ways decision-makers can learn from the onetime President's exceptional leadership skills."
-- Business Week Online, May 17, 2001
...lots of lessons for leaders, ranging from self-discipline to managing teams to motivating the troops.

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.
