From Expertise to Impact:

A Practical Guide to Informing and Influencing Science and Technology Policy

“Dr. Stine’s From Expertise to Impact is a great survey on how to enter the science policy domain. She breaks the process down into manageable parts with mnemonic devices (4 E’s of policy analysis, etc.) to drive her points home in a methodical way to incrementally build readers’ knowledge base. . . Written for policy practitioners at all levels, this book has an engaging and accessible narrative style that kept my attention from the introduction to the appendices. Highly recommended!”
