It's a short, quick, interesting read.
Jon M
I, personally, agree with Marx's and Engels' words, but even if I didn't, I couldn't rate it negatively; IT'S THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO!
Blake Krawczuk
I had heard so much about this book and I am so glad that I finally got it.

"Communist Manifesto" is one of the most fascinating and significant works of political philosophy. Regardless of your political views this is an important book and anyone interested in the history of ideas ought to read it. I had read it for the first time back in college and decided to re-read it when I came across the free Kindle edition.

The Manifesto is written in a very powerful and passionate style, and it's really high on rhetoric. Unlike most other Marx' or Engels' works it is not written in order to analyze historical or philosophical ideas as much as to inspire and give communists a very clear and well-defined set of principles for which they ought to stand. Nonetheless, the Manifesto presents the reader with all the major intellectual positions that communists of all stripes have promoted for over a century and a half: history and politics as class struggles, demonization of "bourgeoisie," dismissal of all other socialist movements, call for the abolishment of private property and the traditional family. Manifesto is also very dismissive of any intellectual objections to its ideas, dismissing all of them with a single sentence. It has become fashionable in certain circles to claim that the eventual horrors of communism were due to the "distortion" of Marx' and Engels' thought, but after reading the Manifesto it is hard to imagine that any of the revolutionary changes that they called for to be implemented in any other way than through extreme violence. "Communist Manifesto" is the line in send that had been drawn very early in the history of communism, and it is very easy to see how all the subsequent tragic developments have been acted out according to this playbook.

I was interested in reading the Communist Manifesto, since I teach World and US history. I do not agree with all of his points but it's still good to read it from the source instead of just analyzing based off of other people's perception.

It's a short, quick, interesting read. It's amusing how similar the complaints are to those in modern politics. I think people would be surprised at how much they recognize and agree with in here, though their desired solutions obviously don't work.
