The secrets of successful government from Michael Barber, one of the world's leading experts on carrying outlasting improvements in public life. Billions of citizens around the world are frustrated with their governments. Political leaders struggle to honor their promises and officials find it near impossible to translate ideas into action. The result? High taxes, but poor outcomes. Cynicism not just with government but with the political process. Why is this? How could this vicious spiral be reversed? In this groundbreaking book, Michael Barber draws on his wealth of experience of working for and with government leaders the world over to present a blueprint for how to run a government. Using contemporary cases from every continent and classic examples from history, he makes a compelling case for a new approach.
