    Widely debated since its publication in 1848, The Communist Manifesto is one of the world's most influential political manuscripts. Presenting an analytical approach to the problems of capitalism and the resulting class struggle between the bourgeoisie and the proletariat, the text lays out the rationale and goals of communism as conceived by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

    Overall

    This book makes great platitudes to why people without limitations are capable of great levels of self-elevations, that they are not capable of controlling. How people are not able to control their own lives and futures. What a sad and arrogant way of thinking. That people are just a herd of children that need to be controlled and held down. It is a wonder that this way of thinking could have ever made it anywhere. - I think that everyone should read this book to be aware of how to recognize the limiting desires of others.

    This classic statement of economic liberalism or the policy of laissez-faire was first published in 1776. It is an engrossing analysis of the economic facts of life. Several fundamental principles, many of which are now referred to as axioms, were introduced in this work, the division of labor, supply-and-demand, and free market capitalism being among the most obvious.

    "An Awsome Source for Understanding Economics"
    Overall

    I have this book in print as well. I would look for a print book to read, for better understanding. The subject is really complex and just listening while doing other things and get the full understanding is almost impossible. I like this version to hear the book over again to re-enforce what I have studied before. The techniques in this book are so powerful in predicting what the economy will do, it is indispensable to everyone.
