Summary

Opinion polls show that many people in the US prefer socialism to capitalism. But after being declared dead and buried for decades, socialism has come to mean little more than something vaguely less cruel and stupid than what we have now. That's not exactly going to inspire millions to storm the barricades.
Danny Katch brings together the two great Marxist traditions of Karl and Groucho to provide an entertaining and insightful introduction to what the socialist tradition has to say about democracy, economics, and the potential of human beings to be something more than bomb-dropping, planet-destroying, racist fools.

Seriously Entertaining and Seriously Sincere

This is hands down the most entertaining socialist manifesto you will ever hear, well, since "Lenin's little known Big Bathroom Book of Bolshevik Jokes."

Danny Katch will do his best to persuade you that Socialism is not only a good system in theory, it's a real world alternative to capitalism. As a writer, he is bold and funny, and might convince "today's daydreamers and whiners" to embrace a different economic model.

Narrator, Dara Rosenberg delivers Danny's book with the comic timing of a seasoned stand-up comic. She hears every note of sarcasm and of real feeling. A+ job.

Socialism for beginners

A great tool for cutting through such a dense topic & for getting oriented on the basics of socialism, which can be hard for those new to both the concepts & the community. Highly recommended.
