How to Win Business from the Government: A Tactical Guide to Understanding the U.S. Federal Government Information Technology Marketplace

This "how to" book should be mandatory reading for every new fledgling government contractor. After six months of struggling up the government contracting and procurement learning curve, Jimmy Baker's book was my "helicopter" to get on top. Not only does he provide a verifiable template and strategy to learn and understand government contracting, he provides a 45 minute interview which I found to be absolutely invaluable.....and one hell of a value for $5 on Kindle. Read this book and move to the top of the learn curve...Don't read this book and continue to struggle with the masses.

Books are one of the best ways to gain new insights and get ideas into your head. James Baker's book, "How to Win Business from the Government," nails this concept. Get your highlighter and pencil ready, because you will want to write notes and highlight key information, that you'll refer to time and time again. This is an excellent resource for anyone targeting the federal government.

Our company provides information technology services, and we include the Federal government among our clients. Business development is a topic that eludes many tech-heavy boutiques such as ours, and Jimmy's book puts it all in our hands with relevant, current, and actionable steps. If you sell IT services to the government, you need to explore this book. It costs less than four grande lattes! The front covers research -- all of which you can try on your own in step-by-step fashion. The latter parts are great to help you take the results of research and move it toward a sale. Includes prepping call plans, and expressing your value. The best part about this book is that there are several points where you can just tell Jimmy really has sold and is sharing his accumulated knowledge. A great value!
