This is a very quick well edited read. If you want to know about people who make things work in the beltway it's worth it.

There are very few interviewers in Washington who combine the personality, expertise and insight to talk effortlessly about federal issues that Francis Rose possesses and now, with the publication of DC Newsmakers, we can read (and savor) his interviews with policy makers and influencers - something we could only enjoy with our ears previously. For that, I am quite grateful.

Francis has a special way of asking questions that don't come across as adversarial but that cut to the heart of the issue being discussed. He doesn't challenge an answer as much as he advances a conversation and he does it so smoothly that the technique is easy to overlook until you see it in written form.

DC Newsmakers is more than an anthology of interviews Francis has conducted. It is a significant contribution to the dialogue members of the political, policy, personnel and procurement community have with each other. It provides context and color to the decision-making process. It is a "must read" for those of us inside the Beltway and an even more important resource for those who live and work outside of Washington who want to understand how and why things happen the way they do.

With the rise of social media outlets that convey "news" in snippets, it is helpful that DC Newsmakers provides depth and original content unavailable elsewhere. And if the first issue is an indication of what is to come, there are a lot of us looking forward to the April edition.

Well done!

Francis continues to demonstrate his ability to communicate relevant, timely information to his target audience. The articles on DoD and DHS continue to demonstrate the challenges and the needed discipline and focus required to bring accountability onto these most untenable agencies, which account for an enormous expenditure of taxpayer funds, along with the perfunctory waste.

I have had the privilege of being interviewed by Francis on his radio program on FederalNewsRadio, and his ability to ask insightful questions and get important information to his audience is evident in this new medium and project. I look forward to future issues, and will be a loyal reader.

I read "Show Us the Money: Pentagon Says It Can--In Three Years," and for the first time I got a sense of the scale of waste in the Defense Department's budget and why it is so hard to reform it. The piece reports that the Pentagon spent almost a billion dollars for absolutely no result. Secretary Gates had the sense to cancel a project before even more money was spent--there was no hope of producing a workable product.

The great thing about DC Newsmakers is that it has facts and details that only insiders have. I also appreciate the clean writing and sharp analysis. This is where I am turning for insight on the Federal government.

Having been around the block a bit in DC, I read thru this edition to see what more author Francis Rose could add. Turns out, he adds a lot. Whether its the Pentagon, Capitol Hill or all the agencies in between, DC Newsmakers proved to be a good read. One that is as informative as it is entertaining...At least from the perspective of a procurement geek like myself.
