From the Inside Flap
It's been both a cry in the dark and a call to arms for generations of readers of Ayn Rand's great novels--which brilliantly portray a world like ours, a world of both great achievement and great crisis. This book answers that question. "I Am John Galt" introduces you to the real-life titans who've lived their lives like Rand's fictional heroes and the malefactors who've lived like her fictional villains.
