    I thought this was a great "intro to taxes" book and found it to be very engaging considering the topic. A fairly non-partisan book, it looks at the history of various tax codes and shows the "winners" and "losers" in the ponzi scheme that the U.S. government is operating. Very enlightening and a must read for anyone who pays taxes! I thought this was a great "intro to taxes" book and found it to be very engaging considering the topic.

    Extremely Covent description of the tax beast Shakes does as excellent job of outlining how taxes have grown and intruded on every part of America, often in a vain attempt to "fix things." While outlining the problems, the also does a good job of outlining potential solutions, which depend on no longer using the tax code to fix perceived problems.

    Interesting book about how our tax system came into being and how it has grown to its monstrous complexity. Parts are dated but still a good look at the history of taxes and some good ideas for change.

    Parts are a little dated at this point, but still an easily accessible introduction to the topic.

    This is a fun and charming book about why taxes drive people crazy. You'd be surprised at how many reasons there are, and not many have to do with the actual amount of taxes, but instead the reasons have to do with their complexity and perverted incentives. A perfect book to read during Tax Month. This is a fun and charming book about why taxes drive people crazy.
