Overview

Ayn Rand is one of the most polarizing authors of the 20th century. Best known for novels “The Fountainhead” and “Atlas Shrugged,” which used characters intent on exercising their individualism over conformity, Rand became a pop philosopher in the 1950s. Her work upholds the virtues of a philosophy that she and Nathaniel Branden called Objectivism.

This book examines both her life and her work; it follows her humble origins and shows exactly how her books have influenced everyone from political figures to celebrities. Finally, it gives a nutshell recap of her most important philosophical contribution: objectivism. If you’ve never really understood why Ayn Rand was important, or if you have appreciated her books and just want to know more, then this book is for you.

Garbage written by a paranoid, drug taker. How in the world would anyone think this has any merit?
