This book, written by an eminent political staffer in a number of US administrations including the White House during both Bush presidencies tries to provide a frame of reference for a member in really any organization, and orientation as to how to get results and be effective in ones job.
The result is a very readable, not very thick book that is relevant not only for the public service, but really anybody who works in a larger organization.

I would, of course, never voluntarily pick such a serious book for myself, and was pleasantly surprised to find it surprisingly readable. There's so many MBA-type books out there for the private sector that it's refreshing to read something aimed at the civil service. Useful tips on how to frame your working relationships, but with a typical American slant- at the end of the day, it's all about you.

Recommends it for: government workers
This is a fantastic book for anyone working in the public sector. It really hit home on many fronts. Even though this book is 16 years old at the moment, it is still incredibly relevant. Government work doesn't change very quickly, and that is one of the goals this book tries to address. Fantastic on many counts.
