あらすじ・解説

After 1989, capitalism has successfully presented itself as the only realistic political-economic system - a situation that the bank crisis of 2008, far from ending, actually compounded. The audiobook analyses the development and principal features of this capitalist realism as a lived ideological framework. Using examples from politics, films, fiction, work, and education, it argues that capitalist realism colours all areas of contemporary experience. But it will also shows that, because of a number of inconsistencies and glitches internal to the capitalist reality program capitalism in fact is anything but realistic.

A tour-de-force analysis of our current political/ social situation

Brilliant, incisive, riveting, unexpected. A must-listen for anyone concerned with our present and future—which I hope would be everyone. Fabulous narration by Russell Brand.

Completely Unsubstantial

I was excited to read this book, hoping it would be a pragmatic analysis of possible alternatives to capitalism. It is far from that. This book is actually just shallow, anecdotal criticism of 'Capital Realism'. Capital Realism is the author's misleading brand of post modernism (A nefariously abstract and vague rabbit hole). The only insight this book offers is borrowed from other texts, which the author traps with his rhetorical and anecodtoal rants. While constantly pointing at 'Capital' as some malevolent entity that is the root of all modern adversity, the only solution the author offers is that neoliberalism is not the the answer. This is a feel good book for psuedo-intellectuals who want to get off on flowery rhetoric, not for anyone who seriously wants to explore the space.

A good book for left leaning peoples

Loved the short, to the point, progressive narrative. While the text is full of many intimidating references to films and events outside the text mark contextualizes and explains them enough to support his points. Russell Brand’s narration is good but sometimes hard to understand to these American ears, this is because of his accent mostly. Just be aware of that before you buy this book and listen to the sample. This text is short but a lot of thought provoking concepts and explorations. Also you will get a lot of great films to add to your watch list if you have not seen the many many films referenced in the text.

Very Good

Fisher lays out some excellent points and is spot on in illuminating the dystopian post history era that we live in. I disagree with a few of his conclusions throughout the book, but overall its well worth a read, because what he gets right is vitally important and not spoken about enough.

required reading

Mark Fisher's description of the modern political landscape is revelatory for any leftist who wants to understand the failures of the left.

Great book and brilliant narration

Really enjoyed Mark Fisher. Listened to him before on YouTube but interesting listening to his book. Really loved Russell Brands style of narration and the emphasis he puts on certain words.

Just as timely as when first published

An essential read/listen now even though the world has turned again since its publication. Accesible but resonates beyond its brevity.
