About the Author
Born February 2, 1905, Ayn Rand published her first novel, We the Living, in 1936. Anthem followed in 1938. It was with the publication of The Fountainhead (1943) and Atlas Shrugged (1957) that she achieved her spectacular success. Rand’s unique philosophy, Objectivism, has gained a worldwide audience. The fundamentals of her philosophy are put forth in three nonfiction books, Introduction to Objectivist Epistemology, The Virtues of Selfishness, and Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal. They are all available in Signet editions, as is the magnificent statement of her artistic credo, The Romantic Manifesto.

I am glad I read this novel at this point in my life. I guess, I was born and raised to be a Peter Keating until I found a Roark Howard in my mind, stubborn and unflinching, while writing Yin-Yang series. I will not go back to being Peter Keating. No matter what.
That said, the first night scene between Roark and Dominique was distasteful. How could a writer of Rand's caliber go wrong with basics?
Two, the answer is not black OR white. The answer lies in seeing the black in white and the white in black.
It's not dependence vs. independence, it's to know WHERE to be dependent and WHEN to be independent.
At times the narrative's details and descriptions are longwinded. The book brings out one's personal feelings. As a way of examining one's own values and principles.
