"Peter Vallone served as Speaker of the City Council during part of my administration and during the administrations of David Dinkins and Rudy Giuliani. He has written a superb book. If you want to know how government functions and how the City Council and Mayor of New York City conduct the business of the people, this is the book to read. I know. I was there. Read Peter's book and become the fly on the wall." – Ed Koch, former Mayor of New York City

“Peter Vallone was an invaluable partner during my years as mayor. In this book he provides a keen legislative view of the workings of city government that should be required reading for anyone who wants to know how New York began its rebirth in the early 1990s.” — David Dinkins, former Mayor of New York City

“This book displays the power of working together. Peter Vallone and I disagreed on many occasions about many things. But we shared a love of New York City and a belief in the power of cooperation. Because we were—and are—friends, we were able to accomplish things that benefited all New Yorkers. Drawing on his years of public service and his commitment to the highest level of integrity, Peter Vallone provides a memorable account of government that all who care about New York City and American government will appreciate.” —Rudolph W. Giuliani, former Mayor of New York City

“Learning to Govern will teach you why one should run for public office and how to do it when you get there. No one has ever done it with more sincerity or integrity than Peter Vallone.”—Mario Cuomo
