Publisher's Summary

In 2005 firebrand radio talk show host Neal Boortz and Georgia congressman John Linder created The FairTax Book, presenting the American public with a bold new plan designed to eliminate federal taxes and the IRS, jump-start the U.S. economy, bring back lost industries and jobs, and recapture billions of untaxed dollars currently hoarded by criminal and offshore businesses. Their book became an immediate number-one New York Times best seller, igniting a powerful grassroots tax reform movement that's spreading like wildfire across our nation.

Now, three years later, the authors are back to answer the outspoken and misinformed critics of their innovative proposal. Offering stunning new insights not covered in the original book, FairTax: The Truth debunks the negative myths and gross misrepresentations of this groundbreaking idea. The FairTax plan is simple, brilliant, and it will work - enabling you to keep all the money in your paycheck; eliminating the fraud, hassle, and waste of our current system; and revolutionizing the way America pays for itself.

    "Sound, well-researched plan"

    After reading the last FairTax book, I still had some questions. This book answered them and strengthened my belief in this version of a consumption tax. It sites in-depth research and includes supporting statements from well-respected economic minds. It also made me realize that criticism generally comes from three sources: those invested in the current system, those who do not understand the FairTax, and those who don't believe the research behind it. The first group is essentially several thousand individuals holding hundreds of millions in thrall. The second group is the largest and will glean the most from the book. The last group is using either someone else's word or their own intuition to counter over $20 million in research. The fact is that the research is out there and open to scrutiny while the counter sources generally are either not open, or use entirely different math (usually based on some questionable assumptions).

    Final word: this could be the most important change to our government in our or the next generation.

    It was also read well by one of the authors.

    "You'll become a believer"

    Good read. If you want to know about the Fair Tax, this book is it. Having Neal's passion in the reading helps. Gets a little long at the end--you'll find yourself saying "I've got it already".

    "The Fair Truth about the Fair Tax"

    Great Book! Neal Boortz (himself) answers many questions and combats many of the unjustified criticisms of the Fair Tax. You need this book if you want to debate the Fair Tax.

    "How to promote the Libertarian agenda"

    After the first chapter, you realize this is an attempt to promote a libertarian agenda in the guise of tax reform. I found this has much less to do with tax reform than it does political reform.

    Despite what the cover states, this does not provide a convincing argument in support of FairTax, much less providing responses to critics of the plan. There was little detailed information, and each chapter left me with more doubt than confidence. Finally, many of the claims seem far-fetched even for someone who has only taken Econ 101, and as mentioned little was done to provide evidence to back up the claims that were made.

    The narrator & coauthor is great to listen to, but I just can't get over the bias and unconvincing repetitiveness.
