This review is from: The German Ideology: Introduction to a Critique of Political Economy (Paperback)
'The German Ideology' is one of the key texts for understanding the evolution of Marx's thought during the 1840s. It is a difficult work which balances theoretical discussion with some of the most barbed critical satire that Marx ever penned, and some knowledge of the work of the 'right' Hegelians is really helpful in following Marx's often complex reasoning.
In spite of these challenges, 'The German Ideology' is a vital and passionate book that does not deserve the heavy-handed abridgement of this edition. You would do much better to read the whole text in another edition (and you would save money as well)!

You can hardly give it one star for being abridged when it says clearly that's it's an edited edition! (Sorry this comment is 8 years after the original review though :P )
