This was a required text in my policy class and I don't feel like it helped me at all.It was one of those classes where the professor relies on the textbook to teach us how to write policy, and this book is short and kind of has the tone of assuming the reader knows the basics. I wish a different book was used, this book might be more appropriate for an average joe looking for help to write formal memos.

Catherine Smith has now given us the 4th Edition of the best publication I've found about the real world of policy writing. Her common-sense approach to various types of policy writing--including examples-- has made her book the "bible" for my graduate policy writing classes.

Required for a Graduate course in research and writing. If you have a background, it is probably not a good buy but for anyone without a public policy background it is a very easy read with a lot of examples.

I am using this book in a Masters of public adminisration course on Emergency Management and my first brush through it indicates that it will be a useful tool for 1) writing graduate level papers concerning public policy, and 2) a painless introduction to process, content and delivery for all current media used in the public policy arena.

The book is written in easy to understand prose, well organized, and even comes with recomended short cuts for skimming and maximizing value for time invested.

This work is a basic overview of writing public policy. There's nothing new here (and not much you couldn't find for free with a Google search). Taking this book's lessons to heart would certainly make you an adequate memo/etc. writer, though your work would never be accused of being inspired. Perhaps a more fitting title: 'The Middle-Manager's Approach to Writing Public Policy'

Okay.
The language is simple and easy to understand. The example are straight forward. Wish I knew about this book in my under graduate years.
