"Featuring a two page listing of the contributors and their credentials, "Smarter Government: Governing for Results in the Information Age" is an impressively informative study that is unreservedly recommended for community, corporate, political think tank, college, and university library Contemporary Political Science collections and supplemental curriculum studies lists. Exceptionally well organized and presented, it should be noted for personal reading lists of students, academia, political activists, state and federal politicians, governmental policy makers and implementers, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject."
