This is a short biography of Karl Marx. I am glad I read the short one instead of the long one. This book does not discuss Marxist philosophy as much as it talks about the somewhat pathetic life of the man who was Karl Marx. I was hoping the book would give me an elementary understanding of Marxist philosophy.

In 90 Minutes Series overview
If you could sum up Nietzsche in 90 Minutes in three words, what would they be?
aka Cliff Notes
Would you recommend Nietzsche in 90 Minutes to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes - I've listened to each book in the series about a major philosopher that is available on Audible. Strathern's books don't have the analytical depth found in Will Durant's "The Story of Philosophy" books, but he does a good job summarizing each philosopher's biography, major philosophical points, and criticisms. Additionally, Strathern's breadth is broader than Durant's in that he covers a greater number of philosophers. I believe that time spent listening to these books has been well-spent.
My reviews for each book in the series about a philosopher are identical.
What about Robert Whitfield’s performance did you like?
Voice is clear, well-modulated, and easily understood, even at 1 1/2 speed.
