Awesome book for several reasons --

1) You can read it in a single evening, if that's the sort of thing you're inclined to do over the weekend.

2) Language is not jargon, therefore 1), above, and also while you're reading it you'll get overjoyed, thinking that YES! HERE is a book you can recommend to your economically illiterate friends! They're not going to read it, of course, but the idea that they COULD, and that it would really IMPROVE their understanding of political events, is very encourag

A pocket book of counter anti-government rhetoric and anti-tax agenda. Introduction by David Cay Johnston. It is very good to say that taxes fuel our democracy, which is the core and fundamental theme of this pocket book. And the 9 remaining excellent reasons lay on that fundamental reasoning.
3 stars, 4 stars, whatever. Concise, useful little encapsulation of valuable ideas, several of which admittedly boil down to "because these different types of domestic spending are all really important for these reasons, and we need to (and can) pay for them" but others of which take other interesting angles. Enough reference is made to the then-future and now-past that an updated edition would be nice at some point.
