I have read quite a few of these introductions to Marx's Capital and I have also read Volume 1 and 2. Of all of the Capital introductions I have read, this has easily been my favorite. Not only did I feel like I understood Marx better after reading it, I also started reading Volume 1 again. I plan on finally reading Volume 3 after that. I particularly liked his discussion of commodity fetishism, I felt he explained it better than other authors have(including Marx). An issue I had was his discussion of the transformation problem, he was very brief(might be better that way) and my impression is that he leans toward the New Interpretation(which I don't think I support). I would like to see some of Heinrich's work on value theory but don't know if its available in English. Capital is a tremendously difficult book and I think Heinrich's introduction could aid people who are new to Marx but also those who have already read Capital and other works.
