Everyone used to think Marx long-dead leftie beardie bore who wrote impenetrable tomes no one could be bothered to read. Now you don't have to! Author reveals KM actually genial if sometimes crusty old cove who liked a pint and had boils on bum, just like you & me! Not his fault if works later misinterpreted by assorted mass-murderers, eg J Stalin, M Tse Tung, P Pot, etc. So what if the Communist Manifesto didn't come true? Neither did New Labour's! Top Marx, Francis!
