Professor Bernstein has a great understanding for Ayn Rand's work.

Format: Paperback
I have read the Fountainhead many times and I was pleasantly surprised by this cliffs notes summary and analysis of the book. It includes a short biography of Ayn Rand but the bulk of the book is spent on detailed going over of Ayn Rand's plot, theme, and characters. It is fascinating to read an intelligent analysis of the characters I love. The gems of the book are the two critical essays; The Literary Integration of the Fountainhead and Ayn Rands Writing Style. This book is written by an Objectivist author and is definately worth buying.

Format: Paperback
Bernstein clears up many misunderstandings or deliberate distortions by unsympathetic critics. Rand's style of writing may be jarring to those who prefer Naturalism. It is worth reading or re-reading Rand with a guide and/or commentary. However, don't deprive yourself of the experience of entering and immersing yourself in Rand's world, which requires reading the novel. Use the guide sparingly as clarification is needed. Unfortunately, Bernstein sometimes refers to future events in chapters not yet read - be forewarned.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Ronald W. Satz on November 19, 2007
Format: Paperback
Bernstein provides a penetrating insight to this brilliant novel of ideas. Included are: a brief synopsis, a list of characters, a character map, critical commentaries on each of the four parts (with glossaries of important terms), detailed analyses of the major and minor characters, and an essay on Ayn Rand's writing style. There are even review questions, essay questions, and practice projects. The only complaint I have is that Bernstein doesn't describe the differences between the novel and the movie script--and there are differences. In some respects, Objectivist philosophy is an outgrowth of (and considerable improvement over) Nietzsche's philosophy. Bernstein points out on p. 59 that Rand kept a quote from Nietzsch at the head of her manuscript which says that there is "some fundamental certainty that a noble soul has about itself, something which is not to be sought, is not to be found, and perhaps also, is not to be lost."

This book helped explain some complicated concepts of "The Fountainhead" in such a concise manner. I'd read the book and wondered about the meaning of some of the story and the Cliffs Notes were a great summary.

By G. R. Farley on August 10, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The actual book itself is a tome---hundreds and hundreds of pages, so this book is very handy to get a quick grasp of Rand's key thoughts, although it does not substitue for reading the actual work. The best character study, and typical of what we see happening today, involves Ellsworth Tooey. I won't spoil the plot by goint into details, but this should be required reading for anybody concerned about the direction America is headed.

This book really helps a reader see "the big picture". I read it when I was about 60% of the way through the book when I grabbed the Cliff Notes. It's a good way to do it; I wouldn't have been able to grasp the overall concept of Fountainhead without it.
