Further Resources

The following list of resources will help you learn more about the different topics covered in my book. Because I’m constantly finding fantastic new ones, it made sense to move this list online, where I can update it regularly. Other readers stop by often and have frequently made excellent suggestions for me to check out and add.

  • The Grumpy Accountant, by Neal Winokur, CPA, CA: Taxes are no laughing matter, but this book is full of humour, not to mention 29 very practical tax tips.
