Event Details

 The Alumni Book Club (ABC) focuses on recently-published, high-quality, and policy relevant fiction and non-fiction. 

 

January's book is: If We Can Put a Man on the Moon: Getting Big Things Done in Government (William D. Eggers).

 

 

It is marketed as "a guide to making our government work better."

The American people are frustrated with their government — dismayed by a series of high-profile failures (Iraq, Katrina, the financial meltdown). Yet our nation has a proud history of great achievements: victory in World War II, our national highway system, welfare reform, the moon landing.

The truth is, we need more successes like these to reclaim government's legacy of competence. In the forthcoming book If We Can Put a Man on the Moon, William Eggers and John O'Leary explain how to do it. The key? Understand — and avoid — the common pitfalls that trip up public-sector leaders during the journey from idea to results.
