9780615909080: Making Ideas Matter: My Life as a Policy Entrepreneur

This book is a primer on mobilizing political power to achieve enlightened goals in a democracy. This is a book about how good politicians can compromise without abandoning moral principles. This is a book that will inspire future political leaders to hold on to their idealism rather than spiral into a cynical distrust of politics and government. Rep. Dwight Evans shows us that politics is a noble art, and with enough research, hard work and knowledge of the legislative process, politics can be the art of the impossible.

About the Author:

William Ecenbarger is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of Walkin' the Line: A Journey from Past to Present Along the Mason-Dixon,  Kids for Cash: Two Judges, Thousands of Children and a $2.6 Million Kickback Scheme , and "Glory by the Wayside: The Old Churches of Hawaii.  And he is the co-author of  Catching Lightning in a Bottle: How Merrill Lynch Revolutionized the Financial World.

Review:

"When citizens -- and their leaders -- can talk with each other, and truly listen to each other, they can put aside differences and find ways to agree and problems that can be solved. Dwight Evans talks, and listens and acts, and in his book -- especially the chapter on School Choice -- he shows us all how to do it."
-- Tom Ridge, Governor of Pennsylvania 1995-2001

"Good public leadership is about both thinking and doing: developing a solution to a public problem and then bringing people together to make it happen. As his story richly demonstrates, Dwight Evans is one of those rare public leaders who can do both."
-- Dick Thornburgh, Governor of Pennsylvania 1979-1987

"Dwight Evans is an incredibly creative innovator of public policy. Whether it was financial literacy, supermarkets in underserved areas or neighborhood development he found new ways to meet these challenges."
--Edward Rendell, Governor of Pennsylvania 2003-2011
