Rice Lake, WI (PRWEB) September 22, 2005
There's nothing like experience to master the fine art of politics and that's just what Al Arnold is offering in his new self-help book, Moving Mountains and Molehills: Local Politics 101.
Arnold, a retired Mayor from Rice Lake, WI, says "In my more than 25 years of local government involvement, I have seen a large number of people not just lose a political battle, but make a fool of themselves in the process." They make fools of themselves "by being unprepared to go into that political battle. Politics on all levels is a combat sport. If you lose, you at least want to lose with your dignity still intact. But, the real reason to read the book is so next time you will win! Winning is what it is all about."
What those who pick up and read Arnold's 108-page softcover book will discover is the answer to many political mistakes, such as you can write too many Letters to the Editor, it is better to say less and keep your speech short at a meeting and know when to compromise, and when to go for it all.
Others agree. Curt Snyder, City Administrator of Rice Lake, WI, said, "Somewhat like driving a car or running a computer, much of local politics is not 'rocket science,' but if you don't know where to begin, it might as well be." Moving Mountains and Molehills Local Politics 101 is a "how to" book which not only tells you where to begin, it gives you practical, straightforward advice about how to get what you want.
Michael Theo, Vice President Public Affairs of the Wisconsin RealtorsÂ® Association said, "Enjoy the writings of Al Arnold, but more important, learn from his experiences. Enjoy his wit and wisdom. Follow his teachings in this book, and you will become a more effective local government activist."
