    I bought two copies of this book. I gave one copy to my girlfriend. We agreed to read it together. We never did. We broke up. I still have a copy. And so does she. Karl Marx ruins relationships by putting undue pressure on them to perform. I think, if I am ever to be in real a relation...

    Louis Althusser wrote a preface to a French translation of Capital and in it he gives lots of advice on how to read this book ? I recommend you read this book according to that advice, even if I didn?t quite do that myself. A big part of that advice is to not read in the order that...

    Do you know how many pages this is? 1152. And worth every leaf on the tree. A must read for anyone willing or wanting to wax grand about capitalism. Picture it: My first semester in graduate school. Day two. My professor goes over the syllabus, week one: Das Kapital (Marx)/ chps. 1...

    I don't remember when I started reading Capital with the assistance of David Harvey (www.davidharvey.org), but its been a greater education than I could have imagined. I cannot help but keeping many of Marx's theories in mind throughout my daily life. Fetishism of the commodity, produc...

    Best way to start the year is finally reading the full text of Capital Vol.1. Previously read only bits and pieces of Marx's magnus opus eclectically (notably the first chapter on commodities, the second part on the transformation of money into capital, the chapters on the labor proces...

    I have not read this book, but am familiar with the gist of it. Until recently, even though I share Marx's aversion of Big Capital in the hands of a Few Individuals, I had not appreciated the real impact. Every product has two values: the intrinsic value of the product, created by t...

    I think one of the great misconceptions about Capital is that it is dry and difficult. Many people seem to think that reading it would be a chore. Not true. I think if you were to read it on your own or in a study group, you?d find it funny, engaging and not all that hard. It assum...

    I bought two copies of this book. I gave one copy to my girlfriend. We agreed to read it together. We never did. We broke up. I still have a copy. And so does she. Karl Marx ruins relationships by putting undue pressure on them to perform. I think, if I am ever to be in real a relation...

    Do you know how many pages this is? 1152. And worth every leaf on the tree. A must read for anyone willing or wanting to wax grand about capitalism. Picture it: My first semester in graduate school. Day two. My professor goes over the syllabus, week one: Das Kapital (Marx)/ chps. 1...

    I have not read this book, but am familiar with the gist of it. Until recently, even though I share Marx's aversion of Big Capital in the hands of a Few Individuals, I had not appreciated the real impact. Every product has two values: the intrinsic value of the product, created by t...

    In the beginning, God (the first commodity) created the heavens (exchange-value) and the earth (use-value). And so begins the materialist Bible, Das Kapital, which, if its abstract theoretical model is to be believed, and I think the case is much stronger for than against, it is the mo...

    I think one of the great misconceptions about Capital is that it is dry and difficult. Many people seem to think that reading it would be a chore. Not true. I think if you were to read it on your own or in a study group, you?d find it funny, engaging and not all that hard. It assum...

    I bought two copies of this book. I gave one copy to my girlfriend. We agreed to read it together. We never did. We broke up. I still have a copy. And so does she. Karl Marx ruins relationships by putting undue pressure on them to perform. I think, if I am ever to be in real a relation...

    Louis Althusser wrote a preface to a French translation of Capital and in it he gives lots of advice on how to read this book ? I recommend you read this book according to that advice, even if I didn?t quite do that myself. A big part of that advice is to not read in the order that...

    Do you know how many pages this is? 1152. And worth every leaf on the tree. A must read for anyone willing or wanting to wax grand about capitalism. Picture it: My first semester in graduate school. Day two. My professor goes over the syllabus, week one: Das Kapital (Marx)/ chps. 1...

    9/12/2017 - I manage to finish Marx's opus a couple days before the 150th anniversary of its first publication. Per usual, I find the mere feat of powering through a great & difficult book doesn't automatically lead to an increase in wisdom. I'll have to cogitate on this one a whil...

    Great unfinished work of Karl Marx, Capital is the bible of the socialist and communist ideology. Long, sometimes perilous, with some touches of redundancy in the way, the book nevertheless offers a vision of the still nascent industrial society in the West. The alienation, labor explo...

    I don't remember when I started reading Capital with the assistance of David Harvey (www.davidharvey.org), but its been a greater education than I could have imagined. I cannot help but keeping many of Marx's theories in mind throughout my daily life. Fetishism of the commodity, produc...

    Best way to start the year is finally reading the full text of Capital Vol.1. Previously read only bits and pieces of Marx's magnus opus eclectically (notably the first chapter on commodities, the second part on the transformation of money into capital, the chapters on the labor proces...

    I have not read this book, but am familiar with the gist of it. Until recently, even though I share Marx's aversion of Big Capital in the hands of a Few Individuals, I had not appreciated the real impact. Every product has two values: the intrinsic value of the product, created by t...

    Just re-pasting my old review, which I wrote a long time ago, coming down off mushrooms and a case of beer.... ------------------------ Fair warning, I'm writing this hung over. The first time I read this, I gave the book 4 stars, knowing it was a 5 star work, but with 4 star wr...

    In the beginning, God (the first commodity) created the heavens (exchange-value) and the earth (use-value). And so begins the materialist Bible, Das Kapital, which, if its abstract theoretical model is to be believed, and I think the case is much stronger for than against, it is the mo...

    I think one of the great misconceptions about Capital is that it is dry and difficult. Many people seem to think that reading it would be a chore. Not true. I think if you were to read it on your own or in a study group, you?d find it funny, engaging and not all that hard. It assum...

    I made the absolute horror of a mistake of listening to this on audio! Once I started I just couldn't put it down (due partly to the amazing nature of the book, and partly to my own neuroses). The reasons not to listen to this on audio: 1. Too many citations to juggle easily on th...

    We live in a world where we're told again and again that class is irrelevant, that the very concept of class struggle is old-fashioned and out-dated. Any open-minded reading of this book, though, will show that class politics is still, and will forever be, at the heart of capitalism. W...

    I bought two copies of this book. I gave one copy to my girlfriend. We agreed to read it together. We never did. We broke up. I still have a copy. And so does she. Karl Marx ruins relationships by putting undue pressure on them to perform. I think, if I am ever to be in real a relation...

    Louis Althusser wrote a preface to a French translation of Capital and in it he gives lots of advice on how to read this book ? I recommend you read this book according to that advice, even if I didn?t quite do that myself. A big part of that advice is to not read in the order that...

    Do you know how many pages this is? 1152. And worth every leaf on the tree. A must read for anyone willing or wanting to wax grand about capitalism. Picture it: My first semester in graduate school. Day two. My professor goes over the syllabus, week one: Das Kapital (Marx)/ chps. 1...

    9/12/2017 - I manage to finish Marx's opus a couple days before the 150th anniversary of its first publication. Per usual, I find the mere feat of powering through a great & difficult book doesn't automatically lead to an increase in wisdom. I'll have to cogitate on this one a whil...

    Marx was a man badly in need of an editor. For all of the financial, amiable, and intellectual support provided by Engels, one wishes that Engels had only he had been more ruthless is cutting the fat from his partner's work. This would have been easy enough at the time, but by now Marx...

    Great unfinished work of Karl Marx, Capital is the bible of the socialist and communist ideology. Long, sometimes perilous, with some touches of redundancy in the way, the book nevertheless offers a vision of the still nascent industrial society in the West. The alienation, labor explo...

    Vampires, monsters, fetishes! Stick with Marx through the saga of the coat and the M-C-M' and the rewards are so rich. When he guides you from the realm of exchange into the realm of production, I dare you not to feel like you are involved in cracking an incredible mystery. Because you...

    This is the third time I've read this book, and I'm confident there will be a fourth, fifth, and even sixth reading. This is the quintessential text for explaining how capitalism is predicated upon the rapacious exploitation of the working class. Although the review written below co...

    El problema con El Capital no es tanto lo pesada que puede resultar su lectura - que lo es -, sino el hecho de que la teoría marxista, a la luz de la realidad, y como lo demostraran varias generaciones de economistas austríacos, tales como Menger, Böhm-Bawerk y Mises, resulta un err...

    to be honest the only reason this book rates is because we have godfathers like David Harvey to illuminate it for us. remember the footnote where he makes fun of Malthus for being a virgin? real mature, KARL. also you'll have to look elsewhere if you're looking for evidence of his toxi...

    I don't remember when I started reading Capital with the assistance of David Harvey (www.davidharvey.org), but its been a greater education than I could have imagined. I cannot help but keeping many of Marx's theories in mind throughout my daily life. Fetishism of the commodity, produc...

    Best way to start the year is finally reading the full text of Capital Vol.1. Previously read only bits and pieces of Marx's magnus opus eclectically (notably the first chapter on commodities, the second part on the transformation of money into capital, the chapters on the labor proces...

    I have not read this book, but am familiar with the gist of it. Until recently, even though I share Marx's aversion of Big Capital in the hands of a Few Individuals, I had not appreciated the real impact. Every product has two values: the intrinsic value of the product, created by t...

    The conqueror will occupy your lands and then sell your resources back to you on credit and tell you all the time it?s a good deal for you. Marx said that multiple times in this book and that?s a metaphor he used to describe the fate of the working person (labor) when at the mercy ...

    Just re-pasting my old review, which I wrote a long time ago, coming down off mushrooms and a case of beer.... ------------------------ Fair warning, I'm writing this hung over. The first time I read this, I gave the book 4 stars, knowing it was a 5 star work, but with 4 star wr...

    In the beginning, God (the first commodity) created the heavens (exchange-value) and the earth (use-value). And so begins the materialist Bible, Das Kapital, which, if its abstract theoretical model is to be believed, and I think the case is much stronger for than against, it is the mo...

    I think one of the great misconceptions about Capital is that it is dry and difficult. Many people seem to think that reading it would be a chore. Not true. I think if you were to read it on your own or in a study group, you?d find it funny, engaging and not all that hard. It assum...

    I made the absolute horror of a mistake of listening to this on audio! Once I started I just couldn't put it down (due partly to the amazing nature of the book, and partly to my own neuroses). The reasons not to listen to this on audio: 1. Too many citations to juggle easily on th...

    We live in a world where we're told again and again that class is irrelevant, that the very concept of class struggle is old-fashioned and out-dated. Any open-minded reading of this book, though, will show that class politics is still, and will forever be, at the heart of capitalism. W...

    I bought this at the school book store, read the first part on Commodities and Money. I read Capital on those mornings when I get up early to fish, except never make it outside, so not making much of a profit with no fish. The next best thing to making a living is reading about Capital...
