6 out of 10. Only because he (Marx) makes so many quirky assumptions about humanity. Overall the manifesto is ridiculous. His assumptions are way off the mark and it amazes me that so many grasp hold as though it might be possible to achive success through his ideals. I had to listen to it and make up my own mind. Marx is a nut. Period.
Not really. This was enough.
Not a wast of time. His utter infatuation with the bourgeoisie is apparent. A good read or in this case listen if one wishes to expand ones grasp of where communism places its origins.
Couldn't put it down, so to speak. A battle for individual freedom from an oppressive government. Very likeable characters.
Many good notes to be taken from this.
Can be used in every day life. Easy to apply.
To put it simply. If you hated Hillary Clinton before President Obama, now she doesn't seem nearly so bad. Our Overton window has shifted, accepting her as she was. This is the concept of the Overton window. How peoples perceptions are shifted by current events and the media. A good story. Thought provoking.
Despite what more liberal reviews may offer here, from my perspective, the book reveals a more realistic point of view on our nation's history than any written by liberal or conservative. This is definitely a worth while investment in knowledge.
