I read this book for my public private partnerships class in grad school and I liked it but wanted to re read it for pleasure... Pity the book became repetitive by the end but still some great cases to read about.
There is the potential for some interesting ideas and discussion but the writing style was just too cumbersome for me to get through this book.
