Editorial Reviews

Larry J. Sabato
Finally, a book that cleverly uses real politics to help people gain ground in their own lives. The ten commandments will get you to heaven, but Craig Crawford's 25 rules will help you survive the purgatory on earth. Read this —before it's too late!
Helen Thomas
Craig Crawford, a Washington pundit, has written a fascinating and insightful guidebook on the use of power in public life, and ways to avoid the pitfalls. He shows it takes a little bit of Machiavelli to play the game in politics—and life—and succeed.
