This is one book that should be required reading for every current and incoming member of Congress. I quote from the National Notary Association on this book: "Calvin Coolidge provides a legacy of ideals, integrity and commitment to public service. His civility, even-handedness and propriety provide wisdom and commonsense guidelines for all. And his extraordinarily successful Presidency proves that civility in politics works. Beautifully designed with seldom-seen photographs and images, and exclusive essays from American thought leaders, Why Coolidge Matters offers a compelling reflection on a special President. Coolidge matters. And this important volume tells us why he matters now more than ever."

The book includes excellent essays by Democrats, Republicans, as well as historians who have studied the Coolidge presidency and style of leadership. There is no doubt in my mind that this book reflects a most excellent portrait of his leadership and common sense approach to national and world problems. His religious faith, and his mentor at Amherst College, Professor Garman, was his two guiding "lights" for his daily walk. Our nation could return to its former greatness if its leadership would mirror Coolidge's world view. I say "could," because, what with all the rancor of the Iraq war dragging on, the economy on the skids, rampant unemployment, and an unpopular presidential healthcare initiative, our country needs to return to the thesis propounded in this book. It is a book that "builds" on several of the excellent books recently published about Coolidge, his life, and his family. It is a page-turner...it represents all that was best in this country, under his leadership, and today, presents a clarion call for Presidents and Members of Congress to return to a civility in politics that can bring our nation together.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Adam G. Katz on July 5, 2012
Coolidge appears to be a man who distinguished himself by what he didn't do... which is frequently mistaken for inaction. It's rare that a politician can hold power without having to exercise that power, just for the sake of doing so.

The authors of this book have done a fine job of profiling our 30th President. Read it and learn why Coolidge would be a good model for both Republicans and Democrats, as the book features sections from both sides of the political aisle.

Highly recommended.

I keep this book out on the coffee table in order to start a conversation with guest because they will almost always say they never heard of him. That gives me the chance to explain how Coolidge was the last President to reduce the size of government and truly believed less government was best government. Furthermore, I explain that he was Reagan's favorite President.
