Very easy to read, lots of research.,
This review is from: Mein Kampf (The Ford Translation) (Kindle Edition)
With all the talk about Mein Kampf, the comedy knock off of it in Japan, and the interest in India, I had to see what was so interesting to all of these people. I am glad I did.
I am pretty anal about everything and I don't buy a book without doing my homework. I did a lot of checking and found out there were several translations or versions of Mein Kampf. I even went to my local library and checked out a copy. The only one they had was Manheim's translation. I immediately saw why everyone kept saying it was boring and hard to read, because it was. From my research it sounded like this translation, the Ford translation, was the best and it turns out it was. It was easy to understand and the inserted notes really helped me follow what was being discussed.
Also get the publisher's other book Mein Kampf A Translation Controversy. It has more information on the book(I would suggest getting it used which is cheaper because the last half is just analysis of old translations). It will really change how you see WWI WWII and world events today.
