ADVANCE PRAISE

"In this important book, William Eggers shows convincingly just how much promise technology holds for making government more efficient, transparent, and responsive to its citizens. Eggers displays a keen understanding of policy-making in the digital age. Accompanying his insightful policy prescriptions are invaluable tips for putting the ideas into practice. Government 2.0 is a great contribution to freedom and democracy."
- Governor Bill Owens,
Colorado

"Government 2.0 should be required reading for all policy makers; it showcases the power of harnessing new technologies in a readable fashion with wonderful, real-life anecdotes. The information is vital for anyone helping to chart the political, cultural and economic future of our country."
- Cathilea Robinett, Executive Director, Centers for Digital Government and Education Executive Vice President, e.Republic, Inc.

"Bill Eggers effectively identifies that democracy in America today is increasingly being played out by everyday citizens in front of computer screens. He shows that political leaders can be in constructive two-way conversations with their constituents if they understand the dynamics of today's technologies."
- Minneapolis Mayor
R.T. Rybak


"Bill Eggers is one of the country's leading experts on government reform. I have been reading and listening to for a decade, since I first was elected mayor of Indianapolis. His new book, Government 2.0, provides a major contribution to the public policy debate."
- Stephen Goldsmith, Professor, Faculty Chair of the Innovations in American Government Program, Harvard University and former mayor of Indianapolis

"Every year, more governments are using technology to become more user-friendly and transparent for citizens, and, ultimately, more effective - moving from old-style patronage politics to performance politics. Government 2.0 is a great place to start for government leaders who want to make the right choices to have the biggest impact."
- Baltimore Mayor
Martin O'Malley

"Bill Eggers is out front ably tackling the huge challenge of making America's governments more rational and more electronic. This is the last frontier of the information age. Let's hope Eggers is right that "IT" shall overcome!"
- Richard P. Nathan, Director, Rockefeller Institute of Government, State University of New York
