In the Arena by Pete Hegseth

 

In the Arena: How American Values and Power Can Save the Free World

Mr. Hegseth is certainly qualified to be writing a book about the Arena. A decorated war veteran who has served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo Bay, he holds two Bronze Stars is the former CEO of Concerned Veterans for America and Vets For Freedom. He is also a Fox News contributor, a graduate of Princeton University and Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.

He has served his country and dealt with enemies both foreign and domestic.

In the Arena takes a look at Teddy Roosevelt’s Citizenship in a Republic address and breaks it down in a very straightforward manner. We are to be good citizens of our country and ask ourselves if we are doing our fair share to ensure the well being of our values as a nation.
He reminds us of our responsibility to be productive, informed and ready to fight for the country we claim to love. Are there some hard truths in here? Yes, and he is very clear about how we must act if we are to not just exist, but to be leaders in the world. Are you ready to get into the arena? Are you ready to be a part of change?
Very well spoken and informative, his is a voice I am sure we will here more from.

I received a free copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
