Books with a Beu

Jamie Beu, owner and co-author (with his wife) of CatholicFamily.info, is a "cradle Catholic", devoted husband, and father of two girls. He is a regular contributor to his parish newsletter, as well as an impassioned defender of the faith who is able to both support and challenge others as necessary -- all in an effort to build-up Christ's Kingdom on Earth. To this end, he does a lot of reading - not just of religious books (for education and research), but also of secular books, both to decompress as well as to keep a finger on the pulse of pop culture (the better to relate to others, as well as to help restore the culture).

The FairTax Book

The FairTax Book - 'Neal Boortz',  'John Linder' Excellent alternative to the income tax and all other alternatives out there, e.g., a flat (income) tax, a national sales tax, etc.

Very well thought out, especially since the authors guide you through the FairTax and how it came about - what things were considered essential (and why) and why certain things were rejected (and why).

The follow-up book,[b:The Fair Tax Book II The Critics and the Truth|1583673|The Fair Tax Book II The Critics and the Truth|Neal Boortz|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51Pc7a1V-kL._SL75_.jpg|1941625], is excellent as well. After reading both of them, I'd be surprised if you did not become a FairTax evangelist as well.
