About the Author
Al Francisco has spent his career teaching classes and writing books for people studying for the CPA exam, first at Idaho State University, then around the U.S. He learned that many people, even those studying for the CPA exam, know very little about the country’s overall tax system. He wrote this book to provide a basic understanding of that system and a number of possible modifications that seem likely to improve the system.

The only reason I gave the book a four out of five is that I would like to see Francisco go further with his suggestions for reform along with their expected (and possibly unexpected) consequences. Perhaps that is the next step. Can it really be this simple? Why not? Simplicity is deceptively powerful.
In the first part of the book, Francisco explains in a clear way the nature of our current taxes and tax structure. This part of the book would be especially useful to those less familiar with the subject but is written in a style that makes it enligtening for any reader.
This book puts in perspective the mess that constitutes our current tax structure. The author elucidates how current tax law codifies great inequity and waste of human capital. In the concluding chapters he offers a conceptual framework and hopeful vision that could transform our tax structure to one with the potential to benefit all American society.
