  1. I became aware of this book when I was in my teens, finally read it when I was 30 My life would have been better if I had read it sooner Buy this for your kids, make sure they read it, then make sure they learn the right things from it.As literature, this book is just OK, hence the four stars Rand was not a native English speaker That she managed to write this well in a second language is amazing I would have written this book differently, but I didn t write it Everything after The Big Long Spee [...]


  2. I am not against a lengthy book, but a self indulgent 1000 plus page manifesto in which characters give uninterrupted speeches that take four hours to read and serve no purpose other than to preach the author s philosophy is completely unnecessary The book did clearly demonstrate Ayn Rand s philosophy through the characters of John Galt, Francisco D anconia, and Ragnar D I didn t need the sililoquies I loved the character of Danny Taggart, who is portrayed as a woman ahead of her time considerin [...]

  5. This book should be among everyone s 100 books Ayn Rand who I personally think was not a very pleasant woman wrote it as a response to communism However, some of the principles of the book could well apply today The idea behind the book is that people should be rewarded for their intellect, especially those whi are able to design things for the betterment of mankind and these skills should not be donated for the greater good free of charge A modern reader will bauk at some of the precedents but [...]
