This book is an excellent read; giving the first real insight into Hyde's tenure in the Aras. As the author makes clear he did not sleep through his tenure and was an active President despite his physical infirmity. He did try and engage in bridge-building across the Civil War divide in respect of his Council of State appointments. He was not afraid to refer bills to this Council to test their constitutionality and thus exert his powers. He did set the office up on a firm foundation and should not be overlooked from history.
