Coolidge: When Less Led To More

I just downloaded my eBook of the new Calvin Coolidge biography by Amity Shlaes. After reading a number of pieces about it, I had to get it. I hope those presidential wanna-be's on the right who think they can be president in a post-Obama America read the book. A piece in The Economist, "When Less Led To More" is a good one to get an idea about Shlaes' bio. Here's one sentence from it:

Coolidge felt that his duty to the public did not include protecting Washington’s influence, and he set to shrinking it.

I'll likely be tweeting and drawing posts about the book as I read it.
