    Story

    Congressional scholars Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein identify two overriding problems that have led Congress—and the United States—to the brink of institutional collapse. But they offer a panoply of useful ideas and reforms, endorsing some solutions, like greater public participation and institutional restructuring, while debunking others, like independent or third-party candidates. Above all, they call on the media as well as the public to focus on the true causes of dysfunction rather than just throwing the bums out every election cycle.

    Story
    If you could sum up It's Even Worse Than It Looks in three words, what would they be?

    Anyone concerned with the future of governance must read/listen to this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's Even Worse Than It Looks?

    The solutions section at the end is thoughtful and pragmatic, showing how change can be accomplished.


    What about William Hughes’s performance did you like?

    His was a steady reading appropriate for nonfiction.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    There is clear evidence that gridlock is not caused equally on both sides of the aisle.


    Any additional comments?

    Importantly, these two authors represent think tanks, one that leans left and one that leans right. It is not a partisan rant.
