No Labels is an effort by people within the political establishment to make the system we have work better. The book -- and the organization -- has some worthwhile recommendations (and some less good ones as I'll discuss below). But ultimately it ignores the deeper causes of the problems they say they want to fix. In particular, the whole issue of money in politics is ignored or, in the one case it is mentioned, dismissed as too hard to accomplish.

We can all agree that Washington, D.C. is not working. This book claims it's ideas will fix that. But they won't really.
No Labels has some good ideas but this book doesn't really discuss them. And they ignore the more fundamental problems. This is basically an approach to fix Washington without making major changes. As I discuss below, both their goals and their strategy are questionable.

This isn't really even a book. It is collection of 2-page "essays' that mostly repeat the same platitudes over and over again. Everyone should work together as they did in past administrations.

I attended an event they held last year. At their event, and on their web site, they have some good ideas about how to improve the process. See "Make Government Work"."Make the Presidency Work" and "Make Congress Work" on their web site. But these ideas are referred to once in the book and never explained. So, rather than buying the book, you'd be better served to see their web site.

But, my bigger problem is with the overall agenda. First of all, it's not working even on their own terms. As of the event I attended, they had about 60 members of Congress (a number from each party) pledged to work together. That number was over 70 by the summer. But we still had a Government shutdown in October.

I agree with the sentiment wholeheartedly, but I found the book something of a disappointment.

A lot of self-congratulating nostalgia, references to "lots of simple procedural things we could to do make things better" but not a single specific. The big ideas, like "Create millions of new jobs", what politician doesn't say that?

Tough-choice compromises like the Simpson Bowles proposal and the Domenici-Lavin proposal are great, but we still need to find a way to get them passed and the book fails to present any ideas how to get it done.

Format: Kindle Edition
The narrative in Washington has become a tired one of late: relentless partisan bickering, inflexible adherence to ideology with no clear beneficiaries (save for reelection campaigns), a "he said, she said" mentality more suitable for reality television than for a congress of adult leaders charged with deciding the future of our great American experiment. The political waters seemed poisoned with vitriol and infantilism, but is Gotterdammerung truly upon us?

Fortunately, the answer is "no," thanks in large part to the sensible proposals of those working with organizations like No Labels to provide solutions of compromise and reason to the inflamed rhetoric that has recently dominated Capitol Hill. Using examples from past and present, the authors of this fast-paced read show that reaching across the aisle doesn't have to be anathema to our political mindset. A shared vision of achievement and progress through productive leadership awaits, if we can listen. Will America heed the call?
