Book Review: Marketing the IRS

This was a book that was sent to my blog when I first started blogging and I finally got around to reading it. This one was called Marketing the IRS by Philip M. Leone.

Synopsis: The actions of the IRS affect nearly every person in America. Charged with collecting federal income taxes and enforcing federal tax laws, the IRS holds great power, and American citizens would like to believe that the Service wields this power efficiently and fairly at all times.

But as Philip M. Leone exposes in Marketing the IRS, the Service suffers from institutionalized ineptitude and outdated, labyrinthine systems. Further, Leone notes that not only are these issues often swept under the rug by the Service, but worse— attempts by employees to update IRS system and practices, to make the service more fair and efficient, are routinely and harshly discouraged.”

Now I knew this was not really the subject material I was interested in going into this book but I wanted to give it a fair shot. I did manage to read the entire thing but I would say that it was not for me. It read like a textbook talking about the IRS and all the issues within it and how to fix those issues.

The content was just boring to me. It went into a lot of detail about the IRS and there are some workplace mentalities that I recognized in past places I have worked but I could not for the life of me find anything interesting about this book. I’m sure someone else might find this fascinating but I was bored and won’t be picking up any more books regarding this subject.

Book Rating: 2/5
