Editorial Reviews


"This is a really excellent guide to U.S. income tax that combines a powerful theoretical scaffolding with attention to important practical details. Ed McCaffery has the flair to explain clearly and entertainingly both the forest and the trees of our ill-functioning system. I will definitely recommend it to my students."
- Daniel N. Shaviro, Wayne Perry Professor of Taxation, New York University School of Law

"A concise but intellectual presentation of the U.S. income tax system - a surprisingly principled description of today's rules, lots of history of how we got here, and an elegant and timely analytic framework for evaluating proposals for change. I can't imagine a better review for a law student's basic tax course. This book has plenty of depth and breadth for LL.M. students and incipient tax lawyers as well, particularly the ruffs on tax planning. Highly Recommended."
- William C. Gifford, Senior Counsel, Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP

Good for even those not subjected to a class on tax. I actually enjoyed this book. It's no Lolita but it's close.
