Reviews

"Should be on the summer reading list of people interested in the opportunities and challenges of technology for public stuff."---Mitchell Weiss, Harvard Business School Working Knowledge
"Power to the Public is an accessible and quick read aimed primarily at nontechnologists, with a clear-eyed take that technology is not a panacea. The book makes an important contribution to the literature on how government needs to reform its traditional approach to solving problems."---Jim Fruchterman, Stanford Social Innovation Review
"Recommended"-- "Choice"
