This is a great book. If you're headed there, you'll find real-world survival tips. If you're intrigued by the place, you'll get a good, honest take on the inner workings. Not too cynical, no rah rah. Just the facts. If you are a leader/supervisor/manager in government service or the military, read everything Perry Smith has written.
