Editorial Reviews


"You can make a difference in your community. With this book you can actually create laws in your city, county or state. If you see things that need to change, buy this book and make it happen."
- Robert A. Schuller, New York Times best-selling author, Walking In Your Own Shoes

"The United States Supreme Court has acknowledged that lobbying elected officials in our democracy is 'among the most precious of the liberties safeguarded by the Bill of Rights, and intimately connected, both in origin and in purpose, with the other First Amendment rights of free speech and free press.'

"How to Change a Law" provides step-by-step, insider knowledge about how to enact or amend a statute.  Everyone is frustrated with the level of inaction in Congress and our state legislatures.  Now you can do something about it." 
- Steve Churchwell, Churchwell White LLP, and former General Counsel, California Fair Political Practices Commission

"I have been deeply interested in politics and the political process my entire life, but it never even occurred to me that an average citizen could have any influence on the laws. A book like this is an act of optimism, because in the cynical age we live in, it takes a voice as passionate and persuasive as John Thibault's to mount the argument that if you really believe in something, you can actually start the wheels turning to make a difference.

John's book, and iLobby itself, are both constructive tools offered to citizens who, until now, didn't know they could be change-makers in a democracy which benefits from their participation and engagement in an age where apathy is, in most cases, the status quo."
- Tim Knight, Founder, Prophet.Net, Author of Panic, Prosperity, and Progress

"I've been a fan of John's for years now and "How to Change a Law" does not disappoint.  As Mayor of the Town of Atherton California, John's insights into the political process are acute and his passion to empower people is real. If you're a concerned voter looking for a road map to create new policy ideas and solve some of our greatest challenges as an advocate for a cause, this is for you."
- Elizabeth Lewis, Mayor of Atherton, CA

"The whole concept of an i-lobby -- an individual process that anyone can utilize -- is an incredibly important contribution to today's political and cultural eco-system. An excellent contribution to our understanding of politics and the real workings of government -- and highly recommended."
- Kevin O'Malley, President, TechTalk / Studio and Chairman, Business and Leadership Forum, Commonwealth Club of California

"The challenges involved in understanding the process of effecting laws are daunting to most. John Thibault's "How to Change a Law" is the first book that simplifies and literally lays out a blueprint on how to effectively have an impact on government and get things done. A first of it's kind in terms of simplicity and directness to how to actually be impactful in getting government to work for you."
- Rob Smith, CEO, Pecabu

"This is one of the most important books written on the legislative process and how to participate in it. It is well-written and well-researched, so much so that I think the book should be part of the required curriculum for government classes at the high school and college level."
- Gerri Knilans, President, Trade Press Services

About the Author

When John Thibault was still in school at Ryerson University, he knew he had something to say, that he had to do something to make a difference in the world. But that "something" hadn't yet taken shape. After receiving his MFA degree from UCLA, he was offered a full-time position in Government Relations at Universal Studios, MCA. It was then that he got to interface with Congressmen and Senators and their staff, administration, heads of state, civic leaders, and state legislators. He received a first-hand lesson in political persuasion at the highest level, learning about issues, policy, Federal Election Commission reporting, Fair Political Practices Commission compliance, working with lobbyists, fundraisers, electioneering, security details, and protocol. He recognized the experience was invaluable but was still searching for his "one big thing" that he was meant to do.After leaving Universal Studios, MCA, John's fascination with Internet technology led him to a young eBay, where he served as the first Vice President of Business Development & Marketing. From there he served as the first Vice President of Marketing at Financial Engines. It was during this time, by 1996, that his mission became crystal clear, and his combined fascination with Internet technology, influence and politics resulted in How To Change A Law and the founding of"Americans needed to understand what Washington insiders have taken for granted. Voters needed to recognize that laws affect every aspect of our lives, that public policy matters!"Today, John is the CEO of iLobby. Several magazines have featured John's work, including Association News, Manufacturing Today, CEO for High Growth Ventures and Millennial Magazine. During his free time, John enjoys skiing and most recently, fly boarding. He lives with his wife and three children in Northern California.
