"ADRIFT is a most compelling read of how and why the USA is slipping from the top, and one that offers a comprehensive national formula to change course. A must read for everyone who wants the best future for their children and grandchildren." --Lt. General John F. Regni, USAF (retired), former Superintendent, U.S. Air Force Academy
"Through some fortuitous confluence of circumstances and productive collaboration between academia, business, industry, and government, the United States has led the world in discovery and innovation to produce a standard of living and quality of life unmatched in scale. Emerging economic powers have studied the model while we have grown complacent. Bill Harris and Steve Beschloss describe our predicament and offer solutions. Recommended reading for policymakers and concerned Americans alike." --Michael M. Crow, president, Arizona State University
"Today's national security threats are fast, flexible, and technologically adept. Staying ahead of these adversaries requires strategic management, wise investment, and public-private partnerships that involve a mosaic of disciplines. Adrift is an astute, well-reasoned look at how America went off course and provides the thoughtful, keen road map the national security establishment needs to assure the nation's safety and prosperity." --Cody Monk, professor of strategic intelligence and cyber affairs, National Defense Intelligence College.
"This is a book that is just right for this time. William Harris and Steven Beschloss have given the clarion call for urgency in beginning the national conversation. They convinced me that our nation's survival—as we know it—is imminently at stake. They lay out the case for the critical four 'C's'—communication, collaboration, cooperation, and, above all else, commitment to moving our country forward. Now." --Sue Clark-Johnson, Executive Director, Morrison Institute for Public Policy/ASU, and former President, Gannett Co. Inc., US Publishing Division
"Adrift's immigration chapter should be required reading for all the Democrats and Republicans in Congress who think that preventing the world's smartest people from coming to America is somehow a good idea." ----Neil Patel, former Chief Policy Advisor to Vice President Dick Cheney and Publisher an co-founder, The Daily Caller
"Harris and Beschloss provide a readable and comprehensive overview of the political and economic threats to U.S. competitiveness along with a menu of policy prescriptions. Their examples of what's worked and what hasn't give a clear sense of what's at stake and what might be done about it." --David Goldston, former Chief of Staff, U.S. House Committee on Science
