"This is a powerful book, made of words and sounds, crisscrossed by subversion and love, written and studied 'with and for, ' as Stefano Harney and Fred Moten put it. The roar of the battle is never distant while reading The Undercommons. The London riots and occupy, practices of refusal, marronage and flight, slave revolts and anti-colonial uprisings frame a challenging rethinking of concepts such as policy and planning, debt and credit, governance and logistics. The Undercommons is a homage to the black radical tradition, to its generative and constituent power before the task of imagining 'dispossessed feelings in common' as the basis of a renewed communism." - Sandro Mezzadra

That said, this book rewards (and merits) a true close readings. I think there are very optimistic and important critiques and alternatives to the established system proffered in this book--novel and engaged ways to redefine knowledge, fugitivity, the capitalist system, blackness, and, indeed, thinking.
I found the interviews at the end of the book particularly instructive in contextualizing the previous chapters. Especially if you're new to this kind of theory, do make sure to cover to cover this.
