Synopsis: Haass, a former special assistant to President Bush and a senior director of the National Security Council, offers a unique and invaluable book about how to work effectively in the public sector--a lively, useful guide about practicing the delicate art of persuasion to gain influcence and achieve success.

From Booklist: The power to persuade and the art of persuasion are vital in all walks of life, but for those in the public sector, persuasion is often the only tool at one's disposal. Haass was special assistant to President Bush and a senior director at the National Security Council and has a long record of government service. He has written extensively on foreign affairs and defense issues but here addresses his concerns with making government more effective. He contrasts his book with the many other books now out aimed at making government more efficient. With observations culled from his own experience and from more than 50 in-depth interviews with the likes of James Baker and Colin Powell, Haass shows how to manage relationships with and get results from one's boss, one's staff, one's colleagues, and those on the "outside." Included is a brief but valuable bibliography of books that show how and why government works--and doesn't work. Sure to be requested at the circulation desk. David Rouse
