Publisher's Summary

The worst idea in history is back!
Communism has wrecked national economies, enslaved whole peoples, and killed more than a hundred million men and women. What's not to like?
Too many young Americans are supporting communism. Millennials prefer socialism to capitalism, and 25 percent have a positive view of Lenin. One in four Americans believe that George W. Bush killed more people than Joseph Stalin. And 69 percent of millennials would vote for a socialist for president.
They ought to know better. Communism is the most dangerous idea in world history, producing dire poverty, repression, and carnage wherever it has been tried. And no wonder - because communism flatly denies morality, human nature, and basic facts. But it's always going to be different this time.
Renowned scholar and best-selling author Paul Kengor unmasks communism, exposing its blood-drenched history and the strange sway it has long exercised over much of American media and education. He reveals:

Stalin alone killed six times as many people as Hitler
The Khmer Rouge slaughtered more than a third of the population of Cambodia
Communists in Eastern Europe and worldwide tortured Christians
Communist Party USA (CPUSA) was directly controlled by the Soviets
Obama's CIA director voted for the CPUSA candidate for president in 1980
Unrepentant 60s-era communists are educating American teachers today

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Communism debunks the world's worst ideology, sounds the alarm about its disturbing popular resurgence, and arms you with facts you need to refute its appeal.

Eye opener

An eye opener, reconciling many conflicting thoughts in my mind. A little bit thick in sarcasm.

Decent summary the red menace

It's a shame Paul Kengor felt it necessary to fill this book with condescending remarks towards the liberals. Because when he actually writes about communism and its horror, he's not half bad.

If you're a republican, buy this book immediately, you'll get a decent summary of the communistic regime and some preaching to the choir.
Everyone else might want to look for a book that doesn't insult its reader.

Unbearably bad reader

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A different reader.

Who was your favorite character and why?


What didn’t you like about John McLain’s performance?

He treated every sentence like a trailer for an action film--a bad one.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Politically Incorrect Guide to Communism?

I don't know. I couldn't listen to it past chapter two.

Any additional comments?

The narrator ruined the entire thing.
