Editorial Reviews

Review

Named one of 16 New Business Books You Need to Read in 2020 by Inc. magazine

Advance Praise for The Politics Industry:

"Business leaders who advocate for special interest cronyism and corporate welfare do so to the detriment of the larger business community and our country as a whole. This book shines a light on how the current political system enables those in power—both in and out of government—to stack the deck against people who start with little or nothing. The consequences extend far beyond the obvious economic waste to injustices that give rise to civil unrest and division among people that threatens the very core of our democratic republic. Whether you agree with every aspect of the proposed solutions or not, this book makes an important contribution to the conversation about how to change our political system for the better. I applaud Gehl and Porter for taking on such a crucial and timely topic." — Charles Koch, Chairman & CEO, Koch Industries and Founder, Stand Together

"A noted business leader joins America's preeminent business strategist to diagnose what ails our political system and prescribe a cure. Timely indeed." — US Senator Mitt Romney (R-Utah)

"Gehl and Porter's powerful book is a deep and persuasive analysis of our current political dysfunction and practical steps for change. Let us hope the public and our leaders take heed." — former US Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana)

"This book is an actual manual for how Americans can reclaim our democracy and make it work for the people rather than for the political-industrial complex. Read it and act!" — Anne-Marie Slaughter, CEO, New America

"Whether you are the candidate on the ballot or the citizen casting the vote, we can all learn from Gehl and Porter's blueprint to improve our democracy." — Mellody Hobson, Co-CEO and President, Ariel Investments

"A revealing perspective on why our $16 billion political industry is failing the American people. The proposed solutions reflect the heart of the American ethos—innovation, determination, courage, and the will to reinvent the status quo." — Howard Schultz, Chairman Emeritus, Starbucks

"Gehl and Porter deliver a stunning indictment of American politics and government. But [they] provide us with much more than analysis and diagnosis. They offer practical reforms to end this destructive political gridlock and dysfunction. This is an impassioned and timely book that deserves wide readership." — Drew Gilpin Faust, former President, Harvard University

"Gehl and Porter are true experts. They provide not just analysis or endless commentary but a plan for real change—all for the better. This is a fresh look at American politics." — Bud Selig, Commissioner Emeritus, Major League Baseball

"This book could not be more timely, as people in this election year reflect on the future direction of the United States. The Politics Industry makes it clear that we have to roll up our sleeves and look for new solutions to overcome political gridlock and partisanship. Our Constitution gives us the latitude to do that. The reform steps laid out here are just as "constitutional" as the current rules. They promise to unleash much-needed competition for the best leaders and policies." — Mark Schneider, CEO, Nestle
