The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists tells the story of a group of working men who are joined one day by Owen, a journeyman-prophet with a vision of a just society. Owen's spirited attacks on the greed and dishonesty of the capitalist system rouse his fellow men from their political quietism. The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists is both a masterpiece of wit and political passion and one of the most authentic novels of English working class life ever written

Amazon handing out free anti-capitalist literature, now there's irony, although not as ironic as if they were charging for it.

Free is free - heat!
An excellent read for those living with 'false consciousness'.👌
I started listening to the audiobook the other day (I have bad eyesight so rely on audio) and it is very, very good. Well worth your time and it is free, so get it and start reading, finish it if you like it. It will only enrich your life. George Orwell's 'Road to Wigan Pier' is also an excellent read on working-class life.
Never read heard it’s good
I read this as I left university, just as I started my career. It was hugely influential on me. Some of the chapters are essential reading.
George Orwell it a book everyone should read. Get started.

Thanks.
Still free. Is someone at Amazon trying to get us to come and topple their employers for them? I am almost half way through and it is an absolutely wonderful read.
