The Formation of the Economic Thought of Karl Marx received a positive review in Telos from James E. Hansen when the work was published in English in 1971. Hansen welcomed Mandel's book as important contribution to scholarship on Marx. The political scientist David McLellan called Mandel's work "excellent" in the 1995 edition of his Karl Marx: His Life and Thought. McLellan recommended the book, together with Mandel's An Introduction to Marxist Economic Theory, as the best introduction to Marx's economics.
