Editorial Reviews

Historian and writer John Pafford's The Forgotten Conservative: Rediscovering Grover Cleveland is a straightforward, highly informative attempt to reexamine one of America's most inexplicably overlooked presidents.
The aptly-named Grover Gardner's performance of this well-organized historical survey is well suited to the text, and his measured, highly articulate style serves to emphasize both Pafford's strong writing and Cleveland's oft-forgotten strength as a two-term president during some of America's most trying years. History buffs will find this comprehensive and engaging audiobook well worth a listen, and a fine addition to the pantheon of work about the US presidency.

Publisher's Summary

Grover Cleveland is truly the forgotten conservative: a man of dignity, integrity, and courage often overlooked by the history books. Historian and author John Pafford reveals a president who deserves more attention. Cleveland might not have presided over deeply troubled times, but he set a standard for principled leadership in office that is especially relevant today.

A book much like Cleveland himself

This short biography is much like Cleveland himself: conservative, earnest, and solid, but by no means spectacular.

Great Biography

Great biography about a mostly forgotten president and fascinating man with an excellent synopsis of the big issues of the late 19th century.
