About the Author

Levi Asher founded Literary Kicks, one of the most popular and enduring literary websites on the Internet, in 1994 while working as a software developer on Wall Street. A constant innovator at the intersection of web culture and alternative literature, he has launched a number of unique projects including Queensboro Ballads (a story cycle in the form of a 1960s folk-rock album), Coffeehouse: Writings From The Web (the first anthology of web writing published in book form, in 1997) and Notes From Underground (a digital movie based on the Dostoevsky novel). Asher has also published a poetry chapbook, Tiger's Milk, and frequently performs at poetry readings around New York City and elsewhere. In 2011, Asher announced a new book publishing venture at Literary Kicks. The first published title was "Why Ayn Rand Is Wrong (and Why It Matters)".

I came to Rand and Objectivism late. I read it when I was 61. While many of Rand’s observations appealed to my conservative political leanings, I was troubled by Rand’s over statements and certainty. This book provides an explanation of some of the weaknesses of the Rand philosophy. It would have been stronger if he had not called the very liberal President Obama a moderate or blamed the crash of 2008 purely on conservatives.
