Coming back for republication is the book originally published in 1998 that first introduced me to the great man from Vermont, President Calvin Coolidge. It came at a time and from a source that left the intelligentsia scratching their heads and the rest of us inspired to learn who Cal was and why he matters so much today. They thought they had Reagan’s ideas on the retreat and then, to their chagrin, Mr. Sobel started explaining Coolidge to a whole new generation. Regrettably author Sobel is no longer with us to witness the influence his study of Cal helped keep aflame. However, good for Regnery in republishing a great and worthy introduction to one of our best Presidents.
