Hardcover: Regnery, 2010.
The world of sports usually makes sense: hard work is rewarded, rules are rules, referees know their place is on the sidelines, and winners know there is no “I” in Team. But in Washington, things seem to be quite the opposite.
In What Washington Can Learn from The World of Sports, former Governor and U.S. Senator George Allen describes some of the most memorable moments in sports history—and the lessons politicians can learn from them. From wasteful spending to national defense and beyond, Allen says Washington needs to take a page from the playbook of our nation’s other passion—sports.
What Washington Can Learn from The World of Sports argues that Washington can be fixed and how America can return to what works—the spirit and principles of fair play, hard work, and keeping score.
