It was such a relief to open the book up and find everything I needed.

Bill LaForge has written a highly accessible guide to demystifying and mastering the art of the Congressional hearing.
Bruce L. Moyer
The structure, organization, and "road map" approach makes the book an "easy read."

Bill LaForge has written a highly accessible guide to demystifying and mastering the art of the Congressional hearing. Mr. LaForge is a highly respected Washington lobbyist and teacher of the craft of public policy. He brings more than three decades of experience -- as a government official, Senate appropriations committee staff director and a Washington lawyer/lobbyist -- to write one of the best books of its kind. The text is an authoritative reference work for use by witnesses preparing to enter the lion's den on Capitol Hill, as well as those counseling and preparing a witness to testify before a Congressional committee or subcommittee.

I'd just received my copy of Testifying Before Congress when I'd gotten the call to come before a Senate committee to testify for a bill of great importance to me. It was such a relief to open the book up and find everything I needed. Mr. LaForge's practical, no-nonsense approach, enhanced with real life examples and a tad of humor, made it an easy read and helped to make my experience not just successful, but also fun. Thanks to the author for bringing us this great resource. I am keeping it within reach from now on.

This book, Testifying Before Congress, is an invaluable resource for anyone who faces the prospect of testifying in a Congressional hearing - particularly in today's highly partisan atmosphere wherein political points are often attempted at the expense of the witness and relevant testimony.

I cannot imagine anyone, and particularly those who serve and answer to public stakeholders, even considering sitting in the hot seat without having gained the invaluable counsel shared in this comprehensive work.

Kudos to Mr. LaForge!

I purchased Mr. LaForge's book and have found it to be tremendously helpful. This guide is invaluable in preparing to testify before any official body, not just the U.S. Congress. For example, I recently used it as a resource as I was preparing a client to testify before a committee of the Institute of Medicine.
