Bureaucrat[byoor-uh-krat]: an official who works by fixed routine without exercising
The often maligned bureaucrat is the subject of many criticisms. In Cooper Zucketto's
case, such criticisms may be well deserved—bombastic, crass, and undiplomatic chief
among them. In his latest dispatch from the world of government, author Mike Tedesco
weaves another rib-tickling tale courtesy of his own bureaucratic experience. "The
Official Bureaucrat's Guide for Navigating Bureaucracy (OBGNB)" will have government
employees nodding their heads in agreement and citizens shaking their heads in disbelief
as Zucketto stumbles into one farce after another.
About the author: Mike Tedesco is a recovering bureaucrat now residing in Spokane,
Washington. Prior to his recovery, he practiced economic development in Colorado,
as well as obtained a master’s degree in Urban Planning from the University of Kansas.
His first book, a non-fiction memoir, is titled City Boy: Urban Planning, Municipal
Politics, and Guerilla Warfare.
