"What Should Think Tanks Do? A Strategic Guide to Policy Impact should be considered mandatory reading for anyone that is a part of a think tank operation, be it governmental, NGO, academic, or corporate." - James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review "The chasm between good ideas and making policy has confounded Washington for too long. Andrew's concise and informed work builds a bridge to connect these two realms and maps the five steps to successfully walk across it. Whether an academic or a legislator, think tank or government staffer, if you care about turning good ideas into good policy, Andrew's book will guide you down the right path." - Barry Jackson, former Senior Advisor to President George W. Bush "With its focus on outcome-oriented strategies, What Should Think Tanks Do? is essential for the directors and funders of think tanks, who want their institutions to make a real difference in informing and influencing public policy." - Paul Brest, Stanford University, former president, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and co-author, Money Well Spent: A Strategic Plan for Smart Philanthropy "This interesting and thoughtful treatise offers practical advice that will help think tank directors better manage how their organizations engage in research, and how they communicate their findings to multiple target audiences. It should prove enormously helpful both to think tanks and to scholars who study these complex and increasingly visible organizations." - Don Abelson, The University of Western Ontario "The policy world is filled with voices clamoring to be heard, but few organizations are consistently successful at getting the ear of policymakers and shaping the ideas that become part of public debate. This book shows how organizations that care about influencing policy can take a strategic approach to impact and deliver results." - Jane Harman, Director, President, and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson Center, former Member of Congress
