This book is amazing. Its a systematic analysis of Marxism and is packed full of information which should give anyone plenty of ammo to argue against a Marxist and his "theories".
I have only one complaint and that is that im not overly fond of the chapter about Marx's life. Even though i do think it was enlightening i think the author at times puts too much of his opinion into it. I know this will suit/please some people but i believe it would have been better if written from a more neutral point of view.

However the rest of the chapters are brilliant. The intro were Yuri tells us about his life in Russia, and the extremes some people would go to in order to make a living and feed themselves.

Then from chapter to chapter. The first is to deal with the some of the economic problems of Marxism such as the Labor Theory of Value, the role of profit, the failure of Marx to account for time-preference, social calculation, etc. It inquires critically and takes them all to task. The second chapter deals with the role of class conscioussness Hans Herman-Hoppe. The third is the biography on Marx, most notably his bourgeoise background.

My favourite chapter is the 4th on Marxist Method and Mercantilism. I feel as though its given me a much better understanding of capitalism as well as helping me win many arguments against people who have tried to put it down.

And then the last two, The Classical Liberal Roots of the Doctrine of Classes, and Marx: Communist as Religious Eschatologist. The Classical Liberal Roots is informative and the last chapter is just chilling!

I would love to hand this book to all Marxists and say "when youre done I hope you dont feel too bad about the time youve wasted on Marx"

I noticed theres next to zero copys available on this site. If youre having difficulties ordering and cant get it this book has been reissued

Somewhat over my head but great insight into one of the greatest rascals in history and the fallacies of marxism.
I cannot believe after the millions of deaths that have come about because of communism that there are still people who think that just maybe next time it will somehow magically work.
Some of them are sitting in the Australian Parliament.

This is a great analysis of the bankrupt and inhumane economic philosophy of Marx and his cronies. Anyone looking for a solid understanding of Marxism will be well served to read this.
