This work is something of a phenonemon is that no other published work has been judged so predominantly on it's author alone without regard for it value as a literary piece. Had Plato, or Dickens or Shakespeare written this it would have had praise lavished upon it, just as if Hitler had written "Hamlet" it would have been condemned. To fully appreciate this work that narrow, blinkered political dogma has to be set aside. Approach with an open mind and evalutate the work itself and you will find that this book is not at all as it is commonly portrayed. It is reasonably well written, although it's foremost asset is the committment and passion with which the autor addresses the issues closest to his heart and the emotions of a man driven by burning ambition which radiate from every page. Whether or not you agree with the sentiment, I suspect most will not, every point is made with conviction and feeling. These are the words of a man speaking his mind with forthright honesty, a man who has a confident, unshakeable faith in his ideas and is not ashamed to share them with the world, a man with a vision in which he passionately believes. This book is branded "evil" as a matter of routine, but it is still essential reading if any objectively complete understanding of this period of history is to be achieved. No man should condemn that which he does not know, the other side of the story must be heard, and can there be a better source that the central figure in the story himself. Read this and dismiss it as nonsense if you see fit, but do read it for the insight it provides is as illuminating as it is invaluable.
