I have, at least Revolutions, Capital and Empires. I havent read Extremes because....well because Nazi's and that I havent gotten over the whole gamut of 20th century history WW1/Nazis/Stalin that gets forced down your throat at school.
But yes, I liked his writing style very much, and the organisation and focus of the works and interpretations are quite Marxists, means of production and very bottom up sort of take on things. Yet he doest layer it on with the clunky language and terminology that I have often found in other Marxist works which tends to bore a little.
