Dr. Schick's book is outstanding. If you use this book in the classroom or teach the congressional or federal budget process, you should also look at the Congressional Operations Poster.
One side of the poster covers the federal budget process, with a flowchart that is very useful when teaching about the federal or congressional budget process. (But don't take my word that the poster is useful - I have seen it hanging in federal agency offices in Washington, DC.) The publisher, TheCapitol.Net, has more information about the poster, and many useful links, on their web site:
Best bet is to buy Dr. Shick's book and the Congressional Operations Poster.

This book analyzes political and economic aspects of U.S federal budget. We can learn U.S budget institutions and history by reading this book. Professor Schick especially focuses on political aspect and budget process. According to his opinion, politics means change and process means stability+incrementalism. I absolutely agree with his opinion because government budget has two features together. Also, we can learn the general budget cycle and government accounting by reading this book. If you are interested in macro-economic fiscal policy, you just need to read macro-economics textbook(Mankiw or Krugman)together. Good Luck.
