William Lehman has written a straightforward account of the unvarnished reality of life under the Capitol dome; how the nation's business is done, how problems are solved, and compromises achieved. Representative in Congress of the people of Miami, he served for a number of years as Chairman of the Appropriations Subcommittee for Transportation. He gives valuable insights into the daily workings of the intricate network of people who have significant influence on US government policy. His book also deals frankly with the role of lobbyists as information providers and technical specialists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This story is not just (of) a Congressman carrying out his duties but doing so in a way that honors his constituents and increases the credibility of the Congress, while serving as a role model, mentor, and most of all trusted friend. > -- Buddy MacKay, Lieutenant Governor of the State of Florida
A candid account, straightforward and unguarded, of the 100th Congress as only a participant could tell it. Seldom have readers been given an opportunity to share the multifaceted concerns that make up a congressman's life in such an intimate way. A reader will see the almost infinite variety of viewpoints and concerns a conscientious lawmaker must balance. . . indispensable reading for anyone who wants to know how Congress really works. -- Jim Wright, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, 1987-1989
