Overview

Ayn Rand is one of the most polarizing authors of the 20th century.

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.
