Editorial Reviews

Review

"Presidential appointees arrive in Washington eager to do a good job but often unclear about how to get started. This is the book they should read first." —Alice M. Rivlin, former director, Office of Management and Budget



"There's never been a time when strong executive branch leadership has mattered more —or when the puzzle of how best to provide it has been more difficult. In this lively and provocative handbook, Ed DeSeve draws on his frontline experience to outline the competencies that top leaders need to lead well. American government —and the citizens it serves —will be far better served if its top officials follow the straightforward counsel in this primer." —Don Kettl, Robert A. Fox Leadership Professor and professor of political science, University of Pennsylvania



"The Volcker Commission stressed that a key to effective government is having a cadre of talented, committed, and empowered leaders in place. The guidance provided in this handbook will be important to the success of presidential appointees as they assumed their new posts and throughout their tenure. Concurrently, it can make the difference to the new administration's ability to effectuate its policy goals." —Hannah Sistare, former executive director, National Commission on the Public Service (Volcker Commission), and staff director, U.S. Senate Committee on Government Affairs
