Atlas Shrugged
by Ayn Rand
"I read this book in college, as many of my generation did, and I was surprised to discover that it said things about our world and our society that I thought only I had been thinking about, i.e., the ascendancy of mediocrity. It was a relief to discover that there was an existing philosophy that spoke to my half-formed beliefs and observations."

The Gold Coast

The author of Courting Trouble says she admires DeMille because "his writing is so honest, his research authentic, and his humor so very sly." Scottoline singles out The Gold Coast: "Great characterization, sly dialogue, and married people in love."
