A Book by Lance Simmens

 

WHAT POLITICAL LEADERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THIS BOOK:

"Many of our elected officials have lost their way. This book offers a road map back to good governance through dedication to true public service and statesmanship. Lance Simmens not only talks the talk but he walks the walk. A must-read for all those wishing to preserve our democracy."

-- Edward G. Rendell, former Governor of Pennsylvania and Chair of the Democratic
National Committee

"This book is a civics lesson for those who want to fix government.It offers common sense solutions to complex problems, but most of all, it provides a framework for restoring confidence in our government leaders and institutions."

-- James R. Sasser, former Chair of U.S. Senate Budget Committee and Ambassador to China

"The Evolution of a Revolution reintroduces to the public discourse important principles of statesmanship that are a key to fixing what ails our body politic."

--Pierre Howard, former Lt. Governor of Georgia

"This book offers answers to daunting questions about the viability of government in a time of dysfunction.It is essential for all those interested in preserving representative democracy."

-- Paul Soglin, Mayor of Madison, WI

"It’s rare to find such a fascinating treatment of the genuine importance and value of public service.It’s a compelling case and an equally compelling read."

-- Rob Shapiro, former Under Secretary of Commerce for Economic Affairs

"At a time when confidence in government and its leaders is at an all-time low, this book is a refreshing commitment to the proposition that government can work."

-- Morris Dees, Founder, Chief Trial Attorney, Southern Poverty Law Center
