Editorial Reviews

The Washington Times
The key book is titled The Operator's Manual for the New Administration. It comes with a companion book, Getting It Done: A Guide for Government Executives. Bruel explained that the works are written more for top federal executives than the president. They focus on how agencies work, how they interact, and how government contracting is conducted. They do not delve into policy since that is left to the president's appointees.
