Henry Waxman

The Waxman Report, How Congress Really Works by Henry Waxman with Joshua Green published in 2009. Henry Waxman was a Democratic member of the US House of Representatives from 1974 until retirement in 2015. For six years prior to that he was a state assemblyman in Sacramento, California. The key to accomplishment in politics is organization–and patience is a necessary virtue. Through concrete examples, he demonstrates what it takes to get laws passed. Almost nothing major is enacted without bipartisan support. Definitely a must-read.
