Format: Paperback
This tome is as relatively thick as the tax code it describes. The first chapter is great for getting some practical tips for lowering your taxes.

After the introduction, however, the book becomes practically useless for the casual reader. Why? This is the 27th edition of a book with chapters added simply to the back of each prior edition. No consideration appears to have been given for editing the text for what is meaningful for the book's reader. (I guess a thicker book appears more authoritative and will thus sell more copies.) I would have preferred a text that was organized by topic, leaving out the chapters of "...in 1988 the tax code said...but that code was replaced so you don't need to worry about it." Most of the book's 900 pages is good for history, but not justifiable as a user's guide for lowering taxes today.

For those interested in purchasing the book, I'd recommend simply taking a note pad with you to the public library or local bookstore and spend an hour skimming through the first chapter. From there you could get everything you need to know from the internet sources referenced in the book.

Format: Paperback
Like some of the other reviewers have mentioned, some of the information in this book is useless, unless you are a tax history buff. Some of the historical information is interesting, but in my opinion, it doesn't really add value to the book and the book could be substantially shorter. Maybe for the 2011 edition the author will consider culling some of the fluff.

That being said, the information is very valuable and well thought-out. This book is, hands-down, the best book on the market for year-round tax planning and the author really knows his stuff. His advice is sound-- the long term strategies to shift income and lower your tax burden take time and a lot of thought. In a time when most tax preparers are too frightened by preparer penalties to even talk about tax shelters, this author still has the gumption to tackle this topic.

Take a weekend off to read this book. It's worth it.

This book is excellent if you are a detail-oriented person who has the patience to sift thru tons of information. If you are impatient and want a quick guide to give you 'tips' on how to save on taxes...don't buy this almost 900-page book. If you take the time and read thru it carefully with a highlighter marker, you will benefit from this author's extreme knowledge on this very complex subject and save yourself money. time is money and this book is worth your time.
