“Katch has done the impossible: he makes socialism sexy … eye-opening, inspiring, and funny … this book might turn you into a closet socialist” (Judah Friedlander, actor and comedian).

Opinion polls show that many people in the United States 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 being bomb-dropping, planet-destroying racist fools.

“The most hilarious book about socialism since Karl Marx and his brother Harpo wrote their joke book. ” —Hari Kondabolu, filmmaker and comedian

“If The Communist Manifesto and America’s Funniest Home Videos had a baby, it would be Danny Katch’s new book. It’s a hilarious and fun way to think about what’s wrong with our world, how it could be different, and how we might get there. Keep an extra copy of Socialism … Seriously in your bag and hand it to the next person who asks you what socialism is all about; as long as that person is not your boss … seriously. ” —Brian Jones, actor, educator, and activist

“A lighthearted, easy read that packs an intro course on socialism into a short volume. With jokes that made me laugh out loud, and a lot of heart. Socialism is for lovers. Indeed. ” —Sarah Jaffe, Belabored podcast host
