More About the Author

Ayn Rand's first novel, We the Living, was published in 1936. With the publication of The Fountainhead in 1943, she achieved spectacular and enduring success. Through her novels and nonfiction writings, which express her unique philosophy, Objectivism, Rand maintains a lasting influence on popular thought.

Customer Reviews

I read one of these books in high school about 50 years ago.
Jannette Dillingham
At the expense of reading great literature you will need to pick your poison: a book with small font or heavy as a small exercise weight.
Scott L. Stedman
I read Atlas Shrugged a year or two ago and have been dying to read it again along with some of Ayn Rand's other works.

This is a good price for these substantial works, but readers should be aware that the type size used in this edition is very small. Older readers or those with bad eyesight might want to buy a full-sized version.

If you interested in reading these books do not buy this box set. The print font is the smallest imaginable...

I was looking to buy this set so I checked it out in a store. I thought maybe the reviews about the small print were exaggerated but this is about the size of the fine print on a credit card offer. Definitely go for the Centennial edition as the print was normal size in that one.

When I saw all the other negative reviews about print size, I just thought to myself "Boy, don't old people just complain about everything."

Having just received the books, I had to move to better light and squint with my 21 year old 20/20 eyes just to make sure someone didn't draw narrow black lines across all the pages (seriously, it's like 2 size font in MS Word). While it is appealing to buy both books for such a low price, I would suggest you throw a magnifying glass in with your order just in case you do not have bionic vision.

I love Ayn Rand, but the print is much too small in this boxed set. Do your eyes a favor, spend a bit more, and really enjoy the read!

When I read the review mentioning the print I scoffed, but it really is unbelievably small. I am 25 and my eyes hurt after reading more than fifteen pages in this book. It is a great deal, but I am now going to buy another copy that has a larger (see: normal) print size.

Ayn Rand taught that each of us has the ability to grow regarles of what is going in the world. She is a lover of what is. When you argue with reality, she said, you lose 100% of the time. Ayn Rand taught tha the best year of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own, you do not blame them on your mother, your father, the ecology, or the President. You control your own destiny, Use the fredoom that the democratic system offer to grow. According to her we are disturbed not by what happens to us, but by our thoughts about what happens.
