He was nicknamed "Silent Cal"; his supporters were urged to "Keep Cool with Coolidge": The signature tone of our 30th President was so low key that even his contemporaries sometimes dismissed as a relative nonentity. That dismissive attitude might change with this new biography by journalist/author Amity Shaes (The Forgotten Man). In Coolidge, she argues that what this mild-mannered Massachusetts lawyer and government lacked in charisma; he gained in effectiveness and honest resolve. In her view, he deserves ample credit for presiding over pre-Depression prosperity and political stability. A presidential life certain to win wide attention in this new era of fierce economic debates.
