"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
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.

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
