Book Reviews


Well made5 star

Props to the people that produced this IBook. Not gonna argue about communism and capitalism, but this is an excellent pick up for those wanting to read it themselves.55

This should be standard literature in American schools.5 star

The Manifesto of the Communist Party is the answer to all questions and misconceptions about communism. Except for maybe “Do I still get to keep my iPhone?” The answer is yes. It just won’t be made because the worker has to in order to pay rent. It will be made because somebody loves to make them and others need to use them. ☭55

Must-read for any lovers of history!5 star

It is one thing to learn about Communism and Socialism in school, it is another to watch videos on the lives of Joseph Stalin and Mao, but it is quite insightful to read the Communist Manifesto itself.55

The difference between communism and socialism5 star

Communism is a dictatorship that owns everything watches its people. Communism also favored a violent overthrowing of the government. Socialism favored a peaceful integration of government and industry and social services. They wanted a 50/50 half government owned industry and half private businesses. That later turned into social democracy such as in scandinavia.55


A decent and quick read, but a little outdated.3 star

I was always curious about the values of Communism, but never really understood them, or understood why they were taking such a big hold on the younger generation. I decided to read through the “Communist Manifesto,” arguably the most famous work by the founder of the ideology, Karl Marx. After finishing the book, I now understand the values of a Communist, and what they truly stand for. There are some parts of it that I agree with, and disagree with. Some of Marx’s ideas are a little outdated, and either would not work in the modern setting, or have already been implemented in the modern setting. Overall, I would say that it is worth a read if you want to understand the core values of what it means to be a Communist.35

A must read5 star

To understand the thought process, this is a must read for any student for life. Some thoughts written back in the day ring so true to this day.55


Not a good instruction manual2 star

It’s just 8 pages as the actual instructions and 56 pages explaining the backstory and reasons for the instructions.25


Must Read Book1 star

This book by Karl Marx properly explains communism. Marx is one of the Fathers of Communism. The reason why I give it one star, is because it was written by a raving lunatic.15
