    About the Book

    Working in the public sector can be tough. You want to make a difference, but too often you find yourself trapped in a labyrinth of ridiculous and impossible obstacles, facing down the three-headed monster of government itself: policies, procedures, and regulations. It’s enough to make anyone want to give up. Now you don’t have to. Fires, Floods, and Taxicabs: Taking a Bite Out of Big Apple Bureaucracy offers a complete kit of effective tools for your own projects, programs, and initiatives. Jeff Roth has spent twelve years inside the New York City government, facing setbacks, slowdowns, and outright knockouts. Now he shares the tricks and methods he has developed to push back against bureaucracy and make a difference. Strong government depends on dedicated stewards who can earn the public’s trust and make sound decisions for the people they serve. Recharge your passion with Fires, Floods, and Taxicabs, and discover the triumph of making real change happen.
