Gabe shares a collection of his experiences during the span of his career as a Transportation Commissioner, and his involvement with start-ups including Zipcar, and D.C.’s food truck industry. He has focused on bridging the public-private divide, finding shared goals, and creating better cities with more nimble, consumer-oriented bureaucracies. His book offers guidance to getting meaningful projects done quickly.
