Read in May, 2012

I saw the author on Stewart and he was convincing enough in his five minutes to sell me a book. This analysis of the US and in some cases international tax systems is a little bit like a text book for the uninitiated, topics are simply stated but I still found myself having to read certain passages a second time. Readers could easily have differnt takeaways from this book, it certainly reinforced my opinion that the only way out of current perceived debt crisis is to end the Bush tax cuts when they expire at the end of this year. Not likely. This is a quick read, easily digested chapters covering each topic. I can easily see myself referring back to it as a primer when I know I might have to engage in a drink encourage debate about taxes and Republicans.
