Picks and Pans Review: The Arthur Young Tax Guide 1989

UPDATED 03/20/1989 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/20/1989 at 01:00 AM EST

Written by Peter Bernstein, a former editor of FORTUNE, this is the longest of the guides (at 632 pages), for good reason: It includes hundreds of passages lifted verbatim from the IRS guide, followed in each case by Bernstein's well-reasoned interpretations and relevant examples. The text-with-commentary approach makes the book both authoritative and easy to use. Drought deduction? Gives two specific cases in which tax courts have allowed the deduction—which is what a consumer-oriented book should do. (Ballantine, $11.95)
