You may not agree with everything that he says but reading this book will certainly help you clarify your thoughts. Michael Barber deserves a lot of credit for taking these very difficult problems head-on. The book is very well written, and it is for that reason that I gave it the 5 stars. As far, as his ideas goes, I don't doubt that they may produce short-run successes. However, only time will tell if his approach is sustainable.

HASH(0x9d21a6e4) out of 5 stars A good read with lots to learn! June 28 2015
By Fathima dada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I found How to Run a Government very useful and interesting.
The conversational and simple, accessible way it comes across belies very in depth and useful ideas on delivery and accountability, which can be applied equally to government, business or other contexts. The case studies and anecdotes make the ideas come alive.
A very useful read and one to be kept and dipped into from time to time.
