Amity Shlaes author of The Forgotten Man delivers a brilliant and provocative reexamination of Americas thirtieth president Calvin Coolidge and the decade of unparalleled growth that the nation enjoyed under his leadership In this riveting biography Shlaes traces Coolidges improbable rise from a tiny town in New England to a youth so unpopular he was shut out of college fraternities at Amherst College up through Massachusetts politics After a divisive period of government excess and corruption Coolidge restored national trust in Washington and achieved what few other peacetime presidents have He left office with a federal budget smaller than the one he inherited A man of calm discipline he lived by example renting half of a two family house for his entire political career rather than compromise his political work by taking on debt Renowned as a throwback Coolidge was in fact strikingly modernan advocate of womens suffrage and a radio pioneer At once a revision of man and economics Coolidge gestures to the country we once were and reminds us of qualities we had forgotten and can use today
