Basically a summary of Capital. Solid, readable, but nothing new. Lacking in the kind of analysis and contextual material that one would expect from a book titled "How to Read," but still, useful. Not as in-depth as David Harvey's "Companion to Marx's Capital" but worthwhile for teaching undergrads or general readers.
Look for my review coming soon to Marxism and Philosophy Review of Books.
