Format: Paperback
The book description Amazon provides is accurate. Do not expect much philosophy, controversy, or excitement from this book. It contains two papers written by Miss Rand before she left Russia, most likely for school assignments. It will probably only be of interest to hard-core Rand fanatics such as myself. Buy it if you are a collector of Ayn Rand memorabilia, or want to support the Ayn Rand Institute.

Format: Paperback
You are probably reading this to get some information on the content of this book. The gem of the book is Ayn Rand's essay, Hollywood: American City of Movies. This is a tribute to a city built on the art form of movies. Most of the actors she pays tribute to are from the silent movie era, like Charlie Chaplin. This essay is excellent. A section of the book is entitled Ayn Rand's Movie Diary. Ayn Rand's movie reviews are all from the 1920's and consist of giving only a 1-5 point rating with no analysis. A very limited amount of movies looked at. Some of the pages are taken up by the Russian translation of Ayn Rands writing. This book should not be your first, or even your second, Ayn Rand book.
