“I have owned (and dipped into) many of Marx’s works, and other works derived from his researches. This little book (Marx In An Hourgets to the heart of Karl Marx the person and has a fair shot at summarizing his otherwise sometimes impenetrable thinking. I enjoyed the read too – it brought him to life as a person but was not attempting to de-mystify his ongoing thoughts and debates.”
