Praise for An Insider's Guide to POLITICAL JOBS IN WASHINGTON

"Bill Endicott has written a remarkable description of what Washington political jobs entail, how you get them, and where they lead-a public service."
- Gerald Ford
38th President of the United States,
Former Minority Leader, U.S. House of Representatives

"Public service is essential to our democracy. Bill Endicott's book . . . is the best primer I have read to help those interested in serving in our nation's capital. For those of us who have had the opportunity to work in political jobs, this experience benefits both the individual and the country."
- Leon Panetta
Former U.S. Representative, Director of the Office of Management and Budget, and White House Chief of Staff

"A view of the process from the inside-from someone who's been there many times. No other source puts all the critical tips into one place as this book does. The perspective on the process is unique. The personal anecdotes and interviews are invaluable. We plan to recommend it to everyone who walks in the door hoping to find a job in politics."
- Jennifer Blanck
