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.
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.
