Praise for the Book:
“Our company turned to Lanny Davis when we faced a legal problem in Washington. He found a way to combine his considerable legal, media, and political skills to find a solution satisfactory to all parties. This book demonstrates the effectiveness of his multi-disciplinary approach to crisis management.” – John P. Mackey, co-founder and co-CEO, Whole Foods Market

“Crisis Tales offers simple crisis management rules, told through riveting true-to-life stories, that can help everyone facing a business, governmental, or personal crisis. In my experience, Lanny applies his unique combination of legal, media, and experience to get the facts out early, develop the right strategy to communicate them effectively, and find the “sweet spot” solution among competing viewpoints to solve the problem.” – Gary Lauer, chairman and CEO, eHealth Inc.

Praise for the Book:

“Davis is a rare insider who is capable of being fair to all sides. He is willing to cast blame on his own party, his own candidates and even his own self, along with those on the other side who deserve blame. This perceptive look into the Washington world of equal opportunity scandal mongering must be read by Democrats and Republicans alike – and by all fair minded people who want to end the politics of mutually assured destruction.” -Professor Alan M. Dershowitz, Harvard Law School

“Lanny Davis has shown he understands the dangers from the left and right of the politics of personal destruction.” -Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT)

“I am confident that Lanny Davis speaks for most Americans when he decries the coarsening of our political discourse and the dysfunction it has created in Washington. Hopefully, his work will serve as a wake-up call and prompt a better, more productive kind of national political leadership.” -former Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN)

“To many conservatives, Lanny Davis is a cherished anomaly: a thoughtful liberal, a decent guy, and a fair-minded Democratic operative who loves his country even more than he loves his party. This challenging book offers a road map for helping America climb out of the current most pit of ugly, partisan mud wrestling and to substitute constructive competition for today’s mutually assured destruction.” –Michael Medved, nationally syndicated conservative talk show host and author of Right Turns

Lanny Davis’s important new book documents the growing number of Americans who want to take the country back from the ideological purists and haters on the left and right. Davis sees a new center majority of fiscal conservatism, social liberalism and cultural moderation and toleration-an ideological mix that happens to be where most Americans are and want their leaders to be…” –Al From, Founder & CEO, Democratic Leadership Council
