An extremely well-written combination of history book and hard-hitting exposé of a deeply ethically-challenged organisation: the Internal Revenue Service of the IRS. Davis's style is accessible, entertaining and interesting. I liked the way she didn't assume everyone has a detailed knowledge of American history: events were described clearly and put into their historical context without a hint of being patronising. I only noticed one small error - it was the Seven Years' War (1756-1763), not the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453) which Britain taxed its Colonies to pay for.Loved this book. And at the same time was thoroughly disturbed by the nature of the institution it describes. ( )
