‘What they’re reading’ — R.T. Rybak

“What they’re reading” appears as an occasional series in MinnPost’s Book Club Club section. We’re asking well-known and not-so-well-known Minnesotans to tell us about the books they’re reading and recommending to others — and why. In today’s  installment, we hear from Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak, who’s reading:

Douglas Brinkley, “The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America” — the third biography he’s read of Theodore Roosevelt. Rybak calls it “the best yet.” He said it “makes you fall in love with what Roosevelt did to preserve the national landscape.”

Matt Miller, “The Tyranny of Dead Ideas: Revolutionary Thinking for a New Age of Prosperity.”
Rybak describes it as “new ways of looking at old problems.”
