Just what we need!
This is a fascinating interview with the author of River of Doubt, the story of Teddy Roosevelt’s expedition into an uncharted Amazon river. It offers incites into Roosevelt’s character, and the traits he shared with Winston Churchill and other great leaders who were willing to take great personal risks while doing everything to protect others they worked with. An inspiring talk, with the answer so many of are asking - what does our broken country need - kindness, with the willingness to listen intently to people with diametrically different points of view.
