Penguin Putnam Inc. Theodore Roosevelt: The Rough Riders and an Autobiography

In An Autobiography (1913), Roosevelt recalls his lifelong fascination with natural history, his love of hunting and the outdoors, and his adventures as a cattleman in the Dakota Badlands, as well as his career in politics as a state legislator, civil service reformer, New York police commissioner, assistant secretary of the navy, governor of New York, and president. Roosevelt writes of his battles against corruption, his efforts to establish America as a world power, his passionate commitment to conservation, and his growing conviction that only a strong national government and an energetic presidency could protect the public against the rapacious greed of modern corporations. Combining vivid and amusing anecdotes with clear and eloquent statements of progressive principles, An Autobiography is a classic American memoir.

For someone who lived such an exciting life President Roosevelt does not write with much excitement. I found his writing style to be tedious and quite boring. I am going to finish this book to honor the man but I would not buy it a second time.
