A revolution is stirring in America. People are increasingly dissatisfied with the way the government works. This New York Times bestseller is both a call to arms against bureaucratic malaise and a guide for those who want to build something better. Using case studies from around the country, the authors lay out a road map for entrepreneurial government which applies results-oriented philosophies to public policy.
