''Ayn Rand is destined to rank in history as the outstanding novelist and most profound philosopher of the twentieth century.'' --New York Daily Mirror

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.

Top Customer Reviews
Ayn Rand is the answer to those professors. She takes apart ideas and points out the intellectual flaws that are running rampant in college classrooms.
In the very first chapter of this book, she predicts everything that we saw during the 2011 occupy wall street movement. Remember, this is a book that was written in 1970 by an author that died in 1982.
I would also like to thank Peter Schwartz for his involvement in the continuation and promotion of Ayn Rand's vision and with his own brilliant analysis.
To anyone who is interested in the power of ideas (or the lack of them) this is the book that they should read.
