Godfrey Harris has been a public policy consultant based in Los Angeles, California, since 1968. He began consulting after serving as a university lecturer, U.S. Army intelligence officer, U.S. foreign service officer with the Department of State, an organizational specialist in President Lyndon Johnson’s Executive Office, and as program manager for an international financial company in Geneva. In all of these positions, Harris experienced a number of episodes of weight losses—when he served in the Army—and weight increases—when he lived in Europe and traveled constantly. As President of Harris/Ragan Management Group, Harris has focused the firm’s activities on projects that offer alternative solutions to matters of community concern. This is the 43rd book he has written on his own or with associates. He holds degrees from Stanford University and the University of California, Los Angeles.
