    " I cant believe im saying this but i actually like his writing compared to others like Smith "

    " Though I am not an avid reader, I must say after reading the Communist Manifesto , I have developed an urge to know more about Karl Marx philosophy. This book is rhetorical and denounced capitalism and free markets in one go. Though it has not changed my opinion about the benefits of free market, I liked the way Karl Marx defended Communism. Most people equate Communism with totalitarianism, which is not true. Read about Cuba;Fidel Castro one of the greats amongst the 20th century communist revolutionaries. One should read this book at least once who is interested in political science. A Great Read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake Brockman | 2/4/2014

    " Capitalism is similiar to Alegbra they both are traps for human life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Galina | 1/19/2014

    " The book, independent of its social message, deserves to be rated with all the five stars. However, my beliefs, understandings of the world, as well as my responsibilities as a human do not allow me to express such an appreciation. Nonetheless, there is some wisdom behind the lines of these thirty pages! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tania | 1/18/2014

    " Interesting book about communism that I had to read for my political theory class. Not exactly a page turner though. "

    " I'm going to reread this because I'm pretty sure I missed the point. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh Kopp | 11/19/2013

    " For reference...so I can allude to it in the future. I am happy capitalist. "

    " Everyone should read it once. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tylor Lovins | 8/23/2013

    " I think this book is very important politically. It creates a mythology in which one is able to make sense, politically, of certain capitalist institutions and motivations. I think it is a great critique and I recommend this book to anyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rasha Gazzaz | 6/27/2013

    " A must read for Marx. "

    " I only liked it because it was very clear what the goals of communist and socialist society are and that by reading this book, I know how to identify them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia Ines | 8/31/2012

    " Another one that should be a must and I do feel is a Pillar on my Education! First time that I read it I was 14! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenn | 6/20/2012

    " It feels weird to "like" a historical document. It was interesting though, to see the beginnings of a political theory, and how its creators pictured it in relation to competing ideologies. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Elizabeth | 6/13/2012

    " Right on. I love it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl | 5/15/2012

    " A good book which provides in particulars several valid political and social observations, but all things considered, a nonsensical political theory. "

    " If only life was simple LOL "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Dent | 4/5/2012

    " Every red blooded American should read this so they understand the threat to our country this vile philosophy presents, and they demystify it and will be better equipped to recognize it when they see it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily Iliani | 3/4/2012

    " Can you really rate this work? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wayne | 6/14/2011

    " Marx's technophobia makes this an entertaining, but hardly enlightening read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bee | 6/4/2011

    " Concise and Informative. Perfect for readers who want to be introduced to the Communist ideology. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jake | 6/4/2011

    " Fascinating and enlightening read. Whether you favour or oppose left wing politics, you need to read this for a truly understanding of far-left politics. I wish this was taught in schools, we know everything about the Nazis, but nothing about Communists, or the Soviet Union etc. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Paul | 5/29/2011

    " Is there a zero star rating? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 5/27/2011

    " Good for the history of Communism. Unfortunately, communism is based on the worldview that man is basically good. Man is sinful and anything but good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Baudolino | 5/25/2011

    " Right about a lot, wrong about a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 5/18/2011

    " I initially read this book for a paper I'm writing for a political ideologies class that I am taking. While not a Marxist myself, I still think that this book serves an important role as a means of critiquing our capitalist system.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erum | 5/15/2011

    " The Marxist theory provided me with a great insight about the reality of capitalism and its mechanisms, although I disagree with a couple of Marx's views. "

    I can feel the righteous anger however, haha. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherrie | 5/8/2011

    " read it to read the actual words. Was it interesting? Sure. Did I turn into a Communist? Yea, not so much. When a philosophy defines itself on what it is 'not' that doesn't sell me. Tell me what you stand for not just what you're against. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Wanda | 5/6/2011

    " Workers of the world unite... Yeah, yeah. I could never be a red. I'm too much of a "take this job and shove it" type. Srsly, tho, the world and it's economy has changed so much that I don't see this little booklet as being particularly relevant any more. Kinda like the Bible.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 4/26/2011

    " who are the people giving this anything less than 5? degenerates . . . degenerates...

    i feel like i can go through the reviews and compile a list of names

    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 4/23/2011

    " Every good socialist's bible - rich and evocative, a fascinating snap-shot of an incredibly important part if our history. "

About the Author
Author Karl Marx

Karl Marx (1818–1883) was a philosopher, social scientist, historian, and revolutionary. He is without a doubt the most influential socialist thinker to emerge in the nineteenth century. Although largely ignored by scholars in his own lifetime, his social, economic, and political ideas gained rapid acceptance in the socialist movement after his death.
