    Very slow and little depth

    Although I am still reading this book, I am not sure my opinion of it will change. While I like to read presidential autobiographies, and I know that they can be very one-sided, this book never seems to bring up any issues. Its writing is without judgment of anyone or anything. Maybe it was because of the times or maybe its because President Coolidge felt it impolite to point out things that cannot be changed despite their outcomes...I am not sure but in a nutshell the book reads like this:

    "I learnt the law so I could become a country lawyer. Then one day, I was indorsed (his word - not mine) to become president and didn't think it wise to say no." THE END
