    Marxism is a term that many people freely use, but few seem to grasp its implications. Sowell's book is the antidote to this problem. He writes in a fluid and easy-to-follow manner, leading the listener through the Marxian scheme of ideas. Along the way, he shatters some existing interpretations of Marx-interpretations that have developed through repetition rather than through scholarship.

    What disappointed you about Marxism?

    Not much about the book, though it's very intricate to listen to the material. I think too much of the special Marx/Engels/Hegel jargon made it a difficult listen while driving.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Thomas Sowell? Why or why not?

    Yes, always pleased with Sowell's books.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The places where the audio was re-read really stood out and were sometimes distracting


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Marxism?

    None -- don't like abridged works.
