I blogged my reading list a few months ago. It included the book Perfectly Legal: The Covert Campaign to Rig Our Tax System to Benefit the Super Rich - and Cheat Everybody Else by David Cay Johnston. I attributed the book to David Johnston, a different reporter at the NYT. I also claimed that the "The unfortunate title of this book will doom it to be marginalized, which is a shame. "
I got a note from the author today saying that the book has far from failed...
Best-seller -- NYTimes and WSJ and other lists; 10 printings so far and now in paperbackWinner, Investigative Book of the Year from Investigative Reporters & Editors (who voted it a medal instead of the usual paper certificate) Results -- at least five laws passed by Congress
So, I'm glad to have been wrong on this one and my appoligies to David.
