ALSO BY DAVID PIETRUSZA:
"SILENT CAL'S ALMANACK"
"Calvin Coolidge was one of the greatest presidents of the 20th century and is certainly the most underrated. This book, compiled by one of my favorite historians, will give readers a full appreciation of why Silent Cal's wisdom shines like a beacon through the fog of historical amnesia."
-Jonah Goldberg, author of "Liberal Fascism"
"David Pietrusza reminds us that decades before the age of the sound bite, Calvin Coolidge mastered the art. But unlike most politicians today, he used few words to say a wisdom-packed mouthful."
-David Stokes, author of "Apparent Danger-The Pastor of America's First Megachurch and the Texas Murder Trial of the Decade of the 1920s"
