I would recommend everyone to read this book regardless of one's political view. At a minimum, it helps to make one a better informed citizen even if one disagrees with the author's ideologies and political leaning.
Professor Kleinbard has done a masterful job succinctly introducing, analyzing and critiquing a rich body of research in economics, philosophy, and social and fiscal policies and forcefully presented his view on how and why we could and should do better. The book is surprisingly readable and even entertaining at times.
It is refreshing to hear the voice of the Dutch uncle (or Don Quixote?). The book is well organized and informative. And can one dare to hope that it may be possible to generate enough voice to pull the national away from the fiscal jerkdom, even just a little?
Grateful that the book is eventually made available as an audiobook. Mr. Johnson did a nice job reading this very long book on a very serious topic, once I got pass his way of saying EBITDA in Chapter 1. I did hear the voice of reason and persuasion often, although not quite the unbridled enthusiasm of Professor Kleinbard. Once in a while the voice seemed to drift into simply reading but overall, Mr. Johnson's performance was quite engaging.
The audiobook comes with a reference guide containing all the figures and tables that can be downloaded from the Audible website.
An exhilarating listen!

An excellent insight into proper applications of Adam Smith's ideas for today's tax policies. Very long, and full of interesting ideas. A little dry, but I think you should expect some dryness from a tax policy book.
