Overview

If you have never read a book about Theodore Roosevelt, read this one first. If you have read other books about him, read this one to discover more about his philosophy and spirituality based on his own works. It covers his entire life from birth to death.
The Joy of Life distills the personality of Theodore Roosevelt into one medium-sized book. Quotes appear in this book which show him to be funny, hyperactive, energetic, exciting, enthusiastic, entertaining and lovable. His contemporaries say such things as: the more I see him the more and more I love him; work was an entertainment with him there; it was love at first sight; never have we laughed so much as when T.R. was our host.
The book shows what motivated him at each stage of his life. During his Police Commissioner days he said to Jacob Riis, author of How the Other Half Lives, "I have read your book and I have come to help." Charging up San Juan hill he realized that he was destined to become a great leader of people like his Rough Riders: a mixed group who included cowboys, Indians, Ivy Leaguers, hispanics, marshals, negroes and Texas Rangers. His greatest effort was in conservation. He preserved millions of acres of land including wildlife refuges, national parks, national monuments and irrigation projects. He accomplished many things in his life but would have obtained a place in history for that alone.

    The book tells a story of a very interesting man.  True, he was hyperactive but he learned to control that by the time he became president.  He became very thoughtful and carefully made decisions.  Hd did use his energy to play tennis and go hiking with his cabinet to bring them closer together and to discuss problems while they were exercising.  when the work became too pressured, he would go to his little cabin called Pine Knot which is still there in Virginia.  He is best known for the Conservation movement where he saved millions of acres of land.  The book also shows how his cousin Franklin got his ideas from Theodore and used them later.  Eleanor Roosevelt was Theodore's favorite niece.
