Rocco Landesman is an ignorant illiterate jerkoff. Coolidge wrote his own speeches, some of the best of the 20th century, and is the most under-rated president of the last hundred fifty years. If he had not been devastated by the death of his son, the history of the entire world would be vastly different.
Coolidge actually wrote his own book, 0 had a felonious prig write his.
