If you have zero prior exposure to Weber's book, or to the roots of sociology, this might be an OK intro, but probably won't tell you much a visit or two to Wikipedia wouldn't do in a fraction of the time and money. A student producing no more information than this as a term paper would get a poor grade from me. This is my second Macat analysis title (the other being on the Rule of St. Benedict), and both so far have this issue, in my opinion: even the compressed format imparts too few ideas and too little content, repeated too many times. It could be half as long as this and a lot better. I have bought several others on the hope that this compact format might work well with the right writer. But I'm batting zero here so far. Wish me luck!

If one is studying the early development of capitalism then one would definitely need to read Max Weber's "The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism." With that being said, this audio book is an excellent supplement to Weber's "Protestant Ethic."
Also adds co text and future trajectories. I would recommend ready the essay first and the intro the 1920 translations first then use this to cement your knowledge. A decent companion piece.
