Regular readers of this blog (or my others) know I am a huge TR fan. I’m looking forward to listening to this EP of the Art of Manliness podcast and potentially reading this book.
If you’ve been following the Art of Manliness for a while, you know we’re big fans of Theodore Roosevelt. His life is a truly inexhaustible repository of interest and inspiration. Well, there’s a new biography out about him that talks about one of the lesser-explored sides of that life: Roosevelt as a journaler and diarist.
It’s called Theodore Roosevelt in the Field, and on today’s show author Michael Canfield and I discuss what we can learn about Roosevelt’s approach to life and his work as a natural historian, conservationist, hunter, and soldier from TR’s own field notes. We discuss how this note-taking habit honed Roosevelt’s keen sense of observation, and of course, the lessons that men can take from his adventurous life.
