5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent description of the public service that stands the test of time, Sept. 22 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you want to know if all the challenges you are experiencing in the public service today are the reflection of our times, read this book! This is a good overview of what is public administration after all! Sure this is written in old english and sometimes hard to follow but it has all the essentials.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good overall review of public policy making, Sept. 22 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good introduction to understanding public policy making and recent development in the field. A good tool for teachers, academics and policy analysts. The use of concrete examples and past and recent political events make for a delightful and enjoyable read. However, this may not be the best product in understanding the day to day work of a policy analyst in government and the challenges they face.

5.0 out of 5 stars Human relations Analysed- we have not changed one bit, May 16 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great analysis of human behavior. Whether you believe it or not these technics still apply today. You can apply them to pretend or you can truly apply them sincerely to have a better relationship with others. It depends on you and why you want to read this book. I found it to be a great find and i understood what i have been trying to understand for a long time. Give and take the context is different, our physical environment may have changed but human interactions have not changed one bit!!!
