well, since we are on about the 101 level, i am looking for the 'best' biography i can find on dear ole Karl M. Any recommendations?

i have the one by Isaiah berlin, called, uhhhhh, Karl Marx. i am looking for something more in depth -- childhood, university experience (he's clearly a well read and eclectic kinda guy), family life, etc etc. i understand from the berlin book that teenager Karl had an older adult friend who he used to walk with and discuss anything and everything. i am interested in hearing more of those kinds of tidbits about K.'s development.

sorry: comments in this case about cult-of-personalities will be discared on sight.
