After reading two of Marx's anthologies, this was indispensable in helping me understand what the hell Marx was really talking about. It was like studying Marx in a college class but without the class and only Fromm as your professor. It further cements Fromm's status in my book as one of the top thinkers of the 20th century. It also gives me a deeper admiration for Marx. Whereas after reading him by myself I had been most impressed just by his sheer audacity in taking the idea of private property to its logical (but extreme) conclusion, Fromm's book left me regarding Marx as a true humanist, people-first Zen political scientist.
