"Socialism... Seriously is a refreshing embrace of socialism as an alternative to the greed, inequality, racism and xenophobia of the capitalist world we are living in."
--Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor, author of From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation

"Give this book to your grandma, your mailman, to everyone except your boss--it's the most fun and accessible introduction to socialist ideas I've ever read."
--Anand Gopal, author of No Good Men Among the Living

"Read Socialism... Seriously, then pass it on to a friend. It's the perfect gateway drug to becoming the full-throttled socialist organizer that you've been waiting for."
--Hadas Thier, author of A People's Guide to Capitalism

"Capitalism was a system built to be skewered. But to do it right, you need the political chops and you need to know how to make the jokes. Danny Katch checks every box and his Socialism....Seriously is a necessary book."
--Dave Zirin, author of The Kaepernick Effect

"Everyone* will love this book."
*Billionaires, multi-million dollar corporations, and yacht-owning CEOs not included.
--Judah Friedlander, World Champion

"I've been waiting for someone to write this book--a lighthearted, easy read that packs an intro course on socialism into a short volume. With jokes that made me laugh out loud, and a lot of heart. Socialism is for lovers. Indeed."
--Sarah Jaffe, author of Work Won't Love You Back

"The promise of a more lovely world is worth our best energies and our sustained commitment--Danny Katch shows us that socialism is for lovers, not losers."
--Bill Ayers, author of Demand the Impossible!

"Danny Katch brings the socialist vision to life."
--Bhaskar Sunkara, editor of Jacobin
