For some years now, those who came to the bar before federal taxes attained importance have been lamenting their unfamiliarity with the field and the consequent loss of clientele. Not a few clients have joined in the lament, often upon the stimulus of an unexpected and unnecessary tax bill. The bar is aware of the problem, and its attempts to meet it have ranged all the way from tax institutes for interested lawyers to cart-before-the-horse attempts to exclude non-lawyers from practice in the tax field. I suggest that Mr. Bickford's readable book is one of the most promising answers to the problem which has yet appeared.
