POLITICAL LEADERS ON MARILYN POLITICAL’S ‘HOW TO RUN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT’

JACEK SARYUSZ-WOLSKI
Vice-President of the European People’s Party

“Achieving success as an MEP, both nationally and within the EU, requires many skills – mastering the nuances of the legislative process, negotiating with impact, building networks, maximizing support and votes, organizing day-to-day functioning with optimal results, and many more. Marilyn Political’s insightful tutorial captures these nuances in one book that every aspiring MEP and his collaborators should read.”

ALEXANDER GRAF LAMBSDORFF
Vice-President of the European Parliament

“Unique and impressive. An absolute must-read for all new Members of the European Parliament.”

MARKUS FERBER
Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs

“How to Run the European Parliament provides an informed insight on what happens behind the curtains. From negotiation strategies to shaping public perceptions – this book is the perfect read if you want to gain an in-depth understanding of how European policy making actually works.”

ANDREY NOVAKOV
Member of the European Parliament

“One of the most get-to-the-point, useful, and must-have political books I have in my library.”

LINNÉA ENGSTRÖM
Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Fisheries

“This book will teach you the mind-set and psychology of the European Parliament. Being a European politician means: relying on good advisers and having the confidence and strength to be patient, generous, and trustworthy. The road to success lies in hard work – and making the right choices. This book will give you exactly the push you need, and the direction to set you on the right path.”

PETRI SARVAMAA
Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Budgets

“Astonishing read! It’s merciless, unforgiving, and so true. As an MEP I could not imagine a better guide into ways of influencing political decision-making in Brussels. I regularly go back to the advice of the book. And I make sure all my advisers and assistants know the text by heart.”

IVAN STEFANEC
Member of the European Parliament

“The book is a very useful and enjoyable reading, particularly for newcomers to the European Parliament. It is a good overview of parliamentarian activities. It reassured me about what I was doing right and where I should improve.”

JONÁS FERNÁNDEZ
Member of the European Parliament

“This book makes for fascinating – and funny – reading. More importantly, it is quite useful, particularly for newcomers. I highly recommend it to any new MEP as absolutely essential. It provides quite a number of practical suggestions, and not to be underestimated, a fair amount of laughing, something that should never be in short supply when working at the European Parliament.”

SANDER LOONES
Vice-Chair of the European Parliament’s Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs

“The European House of Cards, but with a healthy portion of pragmatism.”
