Wheen shows that, far from being a dry economic treatise, Das Kapital is like a vast Gothic novel whose heroes are enslaved by the monster they created: capitalism. Furthermore, Wheen argues, as long as capitalism endures, Das Kapital demands to be read and understood.
Marx is a genius and it's a shame his brilliant ideas never got into the hands of the right people or culture for that matter. However, this particular audio book is a tad on the boring side and the narration certainly didn't help any.

it was a very eye opening book but it's language is sometimes too difficult to understand and it's doesn't do a great work of explaining Das Kapital but more about explaining it's writer
