Book Recommendation: “The Bureaucratic Entrepreneur”

Under the category of "Books I Wish I had Read 20 Years Ago", I have recently discovered "The Bureaucratic Entrepreneur: How to Be Effective in Any Unruly Organization" by Richard Haass.   Don't let the unwieldy title fool you: this is a slim, easily digestible volume that is chockfull of practical advise on how to be successful in your job, be it government, business or the non-profit sector.
