Seeking Bipartisanship, the new book by Secretary Ray LaHood with Frank H. Mackaman of the Dirksen Congressional Center, made front-page news this weekend.

An online article is also available. It notes that like Secretary LaHood, the atypical politician:

The writing for the book also followed an atypical pattern. LaHood and Mackaman started in mid-2007, in the end of LaHood’s last term in Congress. Mackaman essentially drafted a series of interview questions for LaHood to respond to, creating  “living history” vibe to it.

“Ray set the agenda, and after the process he described, I would go back into the archives (of the LaHood papers, housed at the Dirksen Center) and try to bring support or illustration to the argument,” Mackaman said.

They picked back up again after LaHood left the Cabinet and returned to private life. The result keeps a conversational tone, but is also replete with end notes citing specific sources for events, conversations, travel and more.
