Stories of government management failures often make the headlines, but quietly much gets done as well. What makes the difference? Ira Goldstein offers wisdom about how to lead and succeed in the federal realm, even during periods when the political climate is intensely negative, based on his decades of experience as a senior executive at two major government consulting firms and as a member of the US federal government's Senior Executive Service. The Federal Management Playbook coaches the importance of always keeping four key concepts in mind when planning for success: goals, stakeholders, resources, and time frames. Its chapters address how to effectively motivate government employees, pick the right technologies, communicate and negotiate with powerful stakeholders, manage risks, get value from contractors, foster innovation, and more. Goldstein makes lessons easy to apply by breaking each chapter's plans into three strategic phases: create an offensive strategy, execute your plan effectively, and play a smart defense. Additional tips describe how career civil servants and political appointees can get the most from one another, advise consultants on providing value to government, and help everyone better manage ever-present oversight. The Federal Management Playbook is a must-listen for anyone working in the government realm and for students who aspire to public service. The book is published by Georgetown University Press. 1.

As suddenly as Death, the bitter cold came, and with it, the armored tanks, sleek submarines, and mailed warriors of the invading legions! An international syndicate, fearing America's greatness and strength in war, had unleashed savage war-dogs to win the conflict before it fairly began. The greatest military genius of modern times commanded the enemy, and Operator #5 of the United States Secret Service - known to his dearest friends as Jimmy Christopher - was America's choice to oppose him. But with the Intelligence slaughtered, with Diane in the camp of the enemy, the federal government in hiding, Operator #5 faced the stiffest battle of his career, and the Gods tossed dice to determine the victory! Into this unprecedented crisis plunged Jimmy Christopher. Only one man, but a man who embodied the American spirit - and stands prepared to perish to protect his country. Attack of the Blizzard Men is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby. Originally published in the October, 1935 issue of Operator #5 magazine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

Dozens of men were called "robber barons", but few were as notorious or rich as John Pierpont Morgan, a financier and banker who bankrolled the consolidation of behemoth corporations across various industries. Morgan was behind the merging of Edison General Electric and Thomson-Houston Electric Company, which subsequently became General Electric, still known simply as GE across the world today. Similarly, he financed Federal Steel Company and consolidated various other steel businesses to help form the United States Steel Corporation. While critics complained about the outsized influence that these gigantic businesses had, Morgan's massive wealth also gave him unprecedented power in the financial sector and the ability to deal with politicians. In fact, Morgan played an important part in the Panic of 1907 and the subsequent decision to create the Federal Reserve as a monetary oversight. The industrial might wielded by men like Morgan directly led to a public backlash and made President Teddy Roosevelt the "trust buster", and there has since been countless regulations to attempt to avoid the types of monopolies found over 100 years ago. However, many 20th century historians and writers pushed back against the allegations hurled at the "robber barons" and even took issue with the name. Morgan may have used his wealth to collect everything from jewelry to yachts, but he was also celebrated for spending enormous sums of money on charitable works and public service projects. As a result, Morgan's reputation is still mixed, even as his legacy is felt over 100 years after his death. American Legends: The Life of J.P. Morgan looks at the life and career of one of America's most famous industrialists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Austin Downey.
