And it's not really intended to be read, in the conventional sense of the word.  It's the graphical representation of a sound sequence as close to "literally" as you can get it.  When you "read" something in IPA you're not conventionally reading it like text but creating a sound stream of phonemes based on their IPA symbols.  It's certainly nothing like reading any natural language that has a written form (sign language being one of the natural languages that has no written form, and there are others).
