Deep in the Heart: A Remedy for an Ailing Texas
This book offers a candid and sometimes startling look at what ails one of Texas's biggest enterprises -- state government. The author predicts that without dramatic changes, the Lone Star State will face a staggering $3 trillion-a-year budget in our lifetime, public schools will continue to fail our students, and Texans will be awash in an explosion of crime.
