I read this book so that I could increase my knowledge of communism. I figured reading a communist was a good idea to help with this. This study was very intresting. He never really comes to any concrete points. Over and over again, he makes a statement and then in the next couple of chapters says almost the exact opposite. I will always be glad I read this, and I know I will refer back to it many times in the years to come when I need to pop into the head of a communist. It's always good to understand the people who think oppositely from you. Then you notice more, and are more prepared to make intelligent commnets.
