Format: Paperback
When the media report that there are budget issues in Washington and that Congress and the President can't agree, Collender is the one to read to understand what is going on. He explains all the essential relevant economic, social, political, and legal factors that drive the Federal budget process and that result in the headlines that we see. Collender summarizes many complicated facts well, and uses clear language and illustrations to make his point. The annual versions are up to date and timely. This book comes out every year shortly after Collender presents his findings for the year in live briefings and seminars, where he uses state of the art presentation techniques. His entertaining and informative presentations transfer well to the paper medium. Unfortunately, you do have to buy it every year to keep up with developments in Washington. Things do change.

Format: Paperback
Mr. Collender's book is good and well written. 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: congressposter.com
Best bet is to buy Mr. Collender's book and the Congressional Operations Poster.
