By Daniel C. Wilcock on December 18, 2003
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Learn some of the ins and outs of Congress by following the narrative of one bill: the Family Medical Leave Act from the mid 80s to its passage in 1993.
Elving constructs a solid narrative in which the main character is actually a piece of legislation. From this unique vantage point, the reader captures the atmosphere and culture of Congress.
This book is easy stuff for Capitol Hill longtimers, but more importantly its not too difficult for newcomers who want to wade into congressional politics with a good yarn rather than a dry and dusty book of rules.
Recommended.

I have not finished the book, but I have enjoyed the in dept background and process to get a simple law all the way to being signed and a law. The people and steps are fascinating.
