Written primarily for incoming presidential appointees and those in the White House, Senate, and media who must identify, appoint, confirm, and report on them, Prune Books address the appointment and transition processes in their various dimensions. The 2000 edition explores at length the evolving leadership challenge for presidential appointees and, like its five predecessors, profiles 45 of the toughest leadership jobs in government -responsibilities, issues, and necessary professional credentials. The book is based on interviews with current and former appointees, other veterans of the executive branch and Congress, journalists, and political consultants.
