The Naked Communist has sold almost two million copies. It found its way into the libraries of the CIA, the FBI, the White House, and homes all across America and the world. The Naked Communist contains a distillation of more than a hundred books and treatises on communism, many written by Marxist authors. We see the communist the way he sees himself - stripped of propaganda and pretense. Explained here is the amazing appeal of communism, its history, and its basic and unchanging concepts - even its secret timetable of conquest.
This audiobook has been called "the most powerful book on communism since J. Edgar Hoover's 'Masters of Deceit'". In one clarifying and volume, the whole incredible story of communism is graphically told. It includes the tragic story of China, Korea, Russia, the UN, Alger Hiss, Whittaker Chambers, Elizabeth Bentley, General MacArthur, and others.
In 1961, Skousen added the 45 goals of communism. Today, all but one of those goals is fulfilled as detailed in Chapter 13.
Among the many questions The Naked Communist answers are:
But the most important question of all that this book answers is how to stop communism and how to do it without a major war. National broadcaster Paul Harvey at CBS said, "I have never given any volume such an unqualified endorsement."

"The Naked Communist lays out the whole progressive plan. It is UNBELIEVABLE how fast it has been achievable." (Dr. Ben Carson, The Sean Hannity Show)
"No one is better qualified to discuss the threat to this nation from communism. You will be alarmed, you will be informed and you'll be glad you heard him (W. Cleon Skousen)." (President Ronald Reagan, United States President)
"I went back and I read 'The Naked Communist' and at the end of that Skousen predicted someday soon you won't be able to find the truth in schools or in libraries or anywhere else because it won't be in print anymore. So you must collect those books. It's an idea I read from Cleon Skousen from his book in the 1950s, The Naked Communist, and where he talked about someday the history of this country's going to be lost because it's going to be hijacked by intellectuals and communists and everything else. And I think we're there." (Glenn Beck, Host of the Glenn Beck Show)
Yes. So much information about communism in is this book.
The simplicity and clarity was the most compelling aspect of the narration.
There is not a character in this book but Mark did a wonderful job.
How the communist are taking over freedom.
The history of communism was really intriguing. The book plainly lays out the goals for communism.
The Naked Socialist, which is another book in this series is comparable to this book. The Naked Socialist details socialism just like this book does for communism.
There are not any characters in this non-fiction political book.
That communism is alive today. American's need to become educated and wake up that communism is on our doorstep.
This book is the history of communism clearly defined.
Communism: Revealed, Unraveled.
While listening to this book, I felt a profound respect for the author who distilled the complexities and trickeries of Communism into an easy and helpful playbook. My favorite character: The Author.
He has a uniquely clear all-American wholesomeness to his sound. It is neither an easy task to accumulate and layout such a subject as Communisim, nor is it an easy task to vocally deliver such material, but both W. Cleon Skousen and Mark Deakins deliver superbly. Their product is a masterpiece.
I can't believe the 45 Communist goals were so plainly laid out when this book was first published, and yet their fulfillment continues in force today.
Thank you for The Naked Communist, a book which should display prominently on the bookshelf of every American!
I've heard about this book for years. Finally, here's a format so I can listen while driving, etc. The book gives a clean description of the reasons that America is in the mess it is in today---and, the way out is therefore more easily seen and understood. It is suitable content for high school and above. Skousen gives history, context, reasons and warnings. Being an old book, some might dismiss it and that would be a mistake. It sounds like it was written for today. Finally, a breath of fresh air regarding America's problems. Now I'm pointed in the right direction to help turn things around.
Deakins performance brings the nonfiction subject matter to a high level of delightful listening, and thereby, greater understanding. I've heard other works by Deakins and I'd recommend this particular book for those not yet familiar with him---you will become a fan.
How to Prevent the Fall of the United States
People who believe the Constitution is out of date need to read what happens when documents such as that one, and the Declaration of Independence, are pushed aside for alternative forms of government such as Communism and Socialism. Skousen spells it out clearly and succinctly. People who think they've got these upcoming elections all figured out should first read this book---it will prevent some bad judgments from being made at the ballot box.
This is top five non-fiction political book that I have read or listened to.
The facts and how well researched the book is.
Yes. I love Mark. I loved Rogue Lawyer by John Grisham and The Maze Runner. Bassam and the Seven Secret Scrolls was also very well done.
Communism is at our doorstep.
All the facts of Communism are in this book. I can see why it has been a best seller and why it is still relevant today.
Top five in non-fiction and politics.
Rules for Radicals
He did a very nice job with the pronunciation of the names and did a marvelous job with the facts.
Liberals and progressives will not like this book. They will say it is out of date or not true. But look at everything that has happened in the last 20-30 years. It is in this book.
The goal of Communism is to get America to destroy herself from within. That is almost done. As a nation we need to repent and and live morals lives. Only then we will be free again.
Audio is fantastic! Easy to listen too!
Mark Deakins is easy to understand.
I couldn't seem to stop listening.
I enjoyed Clousen's walk through the origins of Communism starting with Marx up through the end of the Korean War, outlining their plans for world conquest. I appreciated that the text has been updated since its initial publishing in 1958 to stay current.
The most compelling aspect of this narrative is that it's still alive and seemingly well.
Chapter 13 (Section 19) - The 45 Communist Goals and status. The discussion of the five vital questions at the end of the book were also quite enlightening.
Communism is alive and well, it's just taken on other euphemistic names. Makes me wonder if liberal progressives in the U.S. really know what they stand for and what they are doing to our country.
I was born in the USSR and my grandpa went to the gulag. Yet how quickly people forget history and strive to repeat it unknowingly. Hence why this book should be read by everyone especially high school students.
