The Wisdom of Theodore Roosevelt

Front Cover
Citadel Press, 2003 - 192 pages
Theodore Roosevelt is remembered as the twenty-sixth President of the United States, but this multi-faceted man was so much more. He rose through the political ranks to become Governor of New York; Vice President; Police Commissioner of New York City; Assistant Secretary of the Navy; and Colonel of the Rough Riders; all by the age of 42, when he also became the youngest man ever to hold the office of President (for two terms). The Wisdom of Theodore Roosevelt presents his words and ideas on a range of subjects, personal and political, and provides a fascinating picture of his personality and beliefs as they evolved over time.
