Publisher's Summary

Opinion polls show that many people in the US prefer socialism to capitalism. But after being declared dead and buried for decades, socialism has come to mean little more than something vaguely less cruel and stupid than what we have now. That's not exactly going to inspire millions to storm the barricades.
Danny Katch brings together the two great Marxist traditions of Karl and Groucho to provide an entertaining and insightful introduction to what the socialist tradition has to say about democracy, economics, and the potential of human beings to be something more than bomb-dropping, planet-destroying, racist fools.

Seriously Entertaining and Seriously Sincere

This is hands down the most entertaining socialist manifesto you will ever hear, well, since "Lenin's little known Big Bathroom Book of Bolshevik Jokes."

Danny Katch will do his best to persuade you that Socialism is not only a good system in theory, it's a real world alternative to capitalism. As a writer, he is bold and funny, and might convince "today's daydreamers and whiners" to embrace a different economic model.

Narrator, Dara Rosenberg delivers Danny's book with the comic timing of a seasoned stand-up comic. She hears every note of sarcasm and of real feeling. A+ job.

Not so much about Socialism

I was searching for a book about Socialism which this book is not so much. It's more about being anti-capitalism and believing that just because Socialism is not capitalism, it would solve all its problems, and all other humans problems too. Like racism, sexism and such! To my opinion that's preposterous.
Most of the content of this book is just berating on the obvious problems of capitalism and almost nothing on how Socialism would work in a realistic environment. On the very contrary, when the book gets to that point, the author goes on telling a fantasy he imagines to be somewhat realistic, I think.
Maybe that's the pun in the title I didn't get before buying this book, but I don't think there's nothing serious here.
