"Some people study policy making, other people do it. . ..McDonough's spirited account of his dual life in the political trenches of the Massachusetts legislature and the analytic turf of the academy carries two powerful messages: scholars have reason to care deeply about the consequences of the governing processes they research and—here's the shocker—a healthy peppering of political science can actually help practitioners become more effective policy makers."—Mark A. Peterson, author of Healthy Markets?: The New Competition in Medical Care

Journal of the American Medical Association

McDonough's book deserves a wide medical audience as we reflect on where to go from here.
