This book illustrates the workings of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) from a tax professional's perspective. But, it is not just a boring lesson in government or income tax. It is a well-written expose of the history behind Canada's taxman (with special focus on the Federal Government of Canada and its interaction with Canadians through the CRA) and delightfully laced with humourous anecdotes and cultural references. Every Canadian should read this book to see what is really happening to them. Americans will also find it quite informative, interesting, funny, and just might shed a light on how the IRS works behind the scenes too.
