Encouraging Africa’s economic growth comes not only from its natural resources potentials, for which the continent is well known. Unfortunately, many of these countries lack well-structured and functional public service to give added value to the rich natural resources potentials of the continent. The book should be seen as the continent’s engine of growth with the purpose of becoming a potential world player. However, it calls for a holistic paradigm shift, political will and mindset to confront the many challenges facing the continent. This is a book worth reading and thinking about. The book is strongly recommended for those whose genuine concern is to see the progress of Africa: those who are pessimist after reading would have a different mindset about the future of the continent. It is a valuable book for laymen. It provides immense food for thought for political and administrative theorists of democracy, public administration and management students of the new social movements alike. I believe the book not makes distinctive contributions to the art and science of services delivery but also shreds fresh light on Africa’s evolving public/civil service development.
