Has anyone read 'Progress and Poverty' by Henry George? Worth reading, or is being a Land Value Tax fanperson already enough?

Although strongly Georgist myself thought it was bit boring. One of the strengths and weaknesses of Georgism is its simplicity.

Watching a lecture series or reading a book or two about the subject gives enough understanding to really get pretty much all there is to it.

This might be bit harsh and I might be exagerating but you probably know what I mean.

@douginamug

Its well written, but in terms of being informative (which is what I enjoy most in books) it doesn't offer that much.
