This book skillfully captures Coolidge as an individual as well as providing a good account of the history of the time and Coolidge's political and philosophical thought. It is not hero worship, and the author takes care to present those in opposition to Coolidge in a fair minded way that avoids demonizing.
I finished the book having a better understanding of the man, the nation, and the history of the time than when I began.
I have a new favorite President. If only the politicians of our age were of a similar mind to Coolidge.
I found myself listening to 2-3 hour intervals, but the narration style demands attention. If I was even a little distracted, the narration was unable to demand by attention and draw me back in.
